Industrial lighting specialist Larson Electronics reveals their Class 1 Division 1 explosion proof string lights with a portable power transformer, which inverts high voltage input to low voltage output for powering the hand lamps.

The EPL-SL-8X75-220V-12V-TXF explosion proof string light set from Larson Electronics contains a total of eight work lights that are equipped with aluminum hooks and connected in series along 80’ of 16/3 SOOW explosion proof cord. An additional 20’ of cord is used to connect the transformer to the lamps to provide ample length for connection outside of a hazardous area.  A sealed aluminum junction box is mounted every ten feet, with three feet of 16/3 SOOW cord connecting a single drop light to each junction box. This unit incorporates eight 75 watt drop lights connected in series and is suitable for use in areas where petrochemical vapors and various dusts are present. The machined aluminum housings, cast aluminum guard, tempered glass lamp globe, and abrasion resistant cord make this a very durable unit that will resist damage from chemicals, abrasions, vibrations and impacts. This string lighting solution will provide operators a flexible, easy to manage lighting solution. The hand lamps can be moved around and hooked to different points on a scaffold, but must remain within 10 feet of one another. The portable transformer converts 220 volts AC to 14 volts AC for the 12 volt 75 watt drop lights. The transformer is enclosed within a NEMA 3R enclosure and includes a twist lock receptacle and weather proof cover. This transformer is mounted on a stand and has 3’ of SOOW cord with a standard 5-15 straight blade plug. 

“This 600 watt explosion proof string light set contains eight, 75 watt incandescent drop lights equipped with hooks to allow the lamps to be moved from different points on a scaffold,” said Rob Bresnahan with “The transformer allows the sting lights to be plugged into standard 220 volt outlets which are then stepped down to 14 volts to operate the lights for low voltage applications.”
