Larson Electronics has announced the release of an improved explosion proof LED light fixture that is Class 1 and Class 2 Division 1 approved for use in manufacturing and coating applications because of its T6 temperature rating and paint spray booth certification.
The EPL-48-2L-LED-20C-EPP explosion proof LED light fixture from Larson Electronics is ideal for operators seeking top quality lighting that will reduce operating costs, improve lighting quality and reduce downtime incurred from frequent servicing intervals. This fixture is equipped with specially designed LEDT-series bulbs which produce 7,000 lumens, resulting in 30% more foot candles of illumination at eight feet as compared to standard T8 lamps when measured with an Extech light meter. These 28 watt LED lamps produce 125 lumens per watt and offer lower amp draw and increased reliability. The LED assembly is mounted within the tube constructed from extruded aluminum and a polycarbonate lens. The solid state design of light emitting diodes provides a more reliable, stable, and energy efficient light source over traditional fluorescent lighting.
This fixture carries a T6 temperature rating and approved for Class 1 Division 1 Groups C and D, Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C, and D environments where flammable or combustible gases, vapors, dusts, fibers, and flying exist or stand the potential to exist. This unit is universal voltage and operates on any voltage ranging from 120 volts AC to 277 volts AC. It has been equipped with a 20 foot cord terminated in an optional explosion proof plug for easy connection to power outlets. These fixtures are standard surface mounted via two swivel brackets that are cinched to a bracket mounting peg on each side of the light. The angle of the bracket is set by tightening two cap screws on either side of the bracket. The bracket is mounted by a single bolt hole at the top of the bracket. Once the brackets are mounted to a surface, the light fixture can be removed from the bracket by loosening the cap screws that hold the bracket to the mounting peg.
“This unit is equipped with a cord and plug for applications where a hard-wired unit is impractical,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “These applications may include chemical storage facilities, construction sites, oil rigs, and treatment plants.”
