Larson Electronics, an industrial lighting leader, has announced the release of a heavy duty extension cord designed to provide secure connection of explosion proof equipment in hazardous locations.
The EPEXC-3X-12.3-30 explosion proof extension cord from Larson Electronics is designed to extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. This explosion proof cord is thirty feet in length, providing ample length for moving about the work space. This cord is fitted with three explosion proof twist lock receptacles constructed of non-sparking aluminum that allows for connection of equipment. The cord is terminated with a twenty amp explosion proof plug for safe and secure connection to power receptacles.
This explosion proof cord, the plug, and the three receptacles are a 3 pole 2 wire design which works with most common explosion proof equipment. The cord is oil, chemical and abrasion resistant for durability and the receptacles feature deep recessed contacts for protection against arcing and a powder coat finish for resistance to corrosion. This explosion proof extension cord is Class 1 Division 1 Groups C, D and Class 2 Division 1 Groups E, F, and G rated, making it ideal for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors are present. This cord is perfect for connecting explosion proof lighting, fans and blowers, and extending the range of portable power supplies and substations within the hazardous work area.
“Larson offers a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with a wide range of lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “As a manufacturer, Larson Electronics can build custom configurations for customers on demand and they keep an extensive supply of plugs, cords, and receptacles for those requests.”
