Safety products: Larson Electronics has announced the release of a Class 1 & 2 Division 1 & 2 Portable Explosion Proof LED Light mounted on a base stand fabricated from non-sparking aluminum equipped with two magnetic feet to aid in stability.

The EPL-16BS-1X150LED-2MB-100 portable explosion proof LED light from Larson Electronics provides operators an easy to maneuver LED work light for use within hazardous locations. The 150-watt LED light head 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 explosion proof LED light head on this unit features multiple LED drivers which help increase the operational life of the fixture. With traditional LED lights, in the event an LED array or driver fails, the entire fixture no longer illuminates. This new series of LED lamps contains twelve 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. In the event of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to operate.

The lamp can be easily adjusted up or down 90° and locked into position by loosening the two hand screws located on the side of the light head. Once the light is in the desired position, the operator then tightens the screws back to set the position. The light frame assembly features two 100 pound grip magnetic feet to help secure the light during deployment, reducing movement of the light from vibrations or accidental bumps and a hand screw at the base allowing operators to pivot the top frame assembly on the four leg base stand. The magnets are intended to help stabilize the unit in an upright position and are not recommended to be used as a suspended light. Included with this portable LED light is 100 ft. SOOW cord terminated in a 1523 explosion proof straight blade plug. This unit is multi-voltage capable and can be configured to operate on 120-277 volts AC. For added protection to the lens, it is shipped with 25 peel off mylar over-spray lamp protectors. They provide the lamp protection from dirt or debris and can be removed, cleaned and replaced.

“This 150 watt LED fixture provides operators with a powerful flood beam for work areas within hazardous locations,” Rob Bresnahan with said. “This explosion proof LED light is equipped with two 100lb grip magnets to help provide stability.”
