By CIOReview | Wednesday, August 19, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Larson Electronics, supplier of explosion proof and industrial grade lighting equipment, announces the release of EPL-16BS-1X150LED-LV-50 portable explosion proof LED light  to provide operators an easy-to-use maneuver work light within hazardous locations.

The 150 watt LED light head that is mounted atop a base stand fabricated from non-sparking aluminum has an LED light head measuring 16 inches wide by 14 inches tall. The LED light head on this unit produces a brilliant flood pattern of light that is ideal for illuminating enclosed areas and hazardous locations where flammable vapors, gases and dusts may be present.

The lamp can be easily adjusted up or down 90 degrees and locked into position by simply loosening the two hand screws located on either side of the light head and retightening them once the desired angle is found. This new series of LED lamps contains twelve individual LED boards configured in a series of banks. Each bank contains two LED boards with an individual driver. In the event of a driver failure, only one bank of LEDs will be affected while the other banks will continue to operate.

The LED light cart contains 50 feet of SOOW cord, combined with the 360° of rotation and 90° of tilt offered by the LED light head to provide an effective alternative to often cumbersome explosion proof string lights. The explosion proof LED light head in this unit features multiple LED drivers which help to increase the operational life of the fixture. With LED lights, there is no warm up time or cool down time before re-striking, providing instant illumination when power is on.

The new release contains 25 peel off mylar overspray lamp protectors to protect the lamp from dirt or debris. It can be removed, cleaned and replaced, reducing   the need for tedious lamp cleaning or replacements. The solid state design of light emitting diodes of this LED provides a more reliable, stable, durable, and energy efficient light source.

“This 150 watt LED fixture provides operators with a powerful flood beam for work areas within hazardous locations. This explosion proof LED light is lightweight, versatile and maintenance free,” says Rob Bresnahan, President, Larson Electronics.
