Safety products: Larson Electronics has announced the release of a pedestal mounted LED work light designed for use within locations deemed hazardous due to the presence of flammable vapors or gases. The EPL-BS-70LED-100 Portable Explosion Proof LED Light features a compact size and high output as well as certification for use in Class 1 Division 1 and 2 rated environments.
The EPL-BS-70LED-100 explosion proof LED light is a portable and powerful LED work light that effectively provides 4,500 square feet of work area coverage with 5,800 lumens of intense light output. This portable LED light offers power and longevity unmatched by standard incandescent work lights, producing nearly four times as much light output as a 100 watt halogen work lamp, and having an operational life rating of 100,000 hours compared to the halogens 1,500 to 2,000. This LED work light runs far cooler as well, eliminating the heat and potential for accidental burns incandescent work lights can create.
The LED lamp assembly is constructed of light weight aluminum and features an unbreakable lens for added durability. The pedestal style mounting base is also constructed from aluminum and features a convenient cord rack on the back, built in carry handle, and an explosion proof switch mounted on the back as well. The lamp is fitted with 100 feet of SOOW cord ending with a 1523 explosion proof straight blade plug to provide ample length and safe and secure connections. This explosion proof work light carries Class 1 Division 1&2, and Class 2 Division 1&2 certification for use in environments where flammable gases, vapors and dusts are present, and is U.L. certified to U.S standards.
The EPL-BS-70LED-100 explosion proof LED light is an ideal lighting solution for operators working within confined spaces such as tanks and storage vessels as well as general industrial work areas where the risk of ignition demands the security and protection of powerful yet HAZLOC compliant lighting equipment.
“This portable explosion proof LED light fixture features a lightweight LED light head mounted to an aluminum base stand with carrying handle and on/off power switch,” said Robert Bresnahan of LarsonElectronics.com. “Featuring 5,800 lumens of intense light output and convenient aluminum stand with built in power switch and cord wrap, this explosion proof LED light is ideal for all classified hazardous locations.”
