Utility safety: Larson Electronics has announced the release of a heavy-duty extension cord designed to provide secure connection of explosion proof equipment in hazardous locations. The EPEXC-4X-25 explosion proof extension cord extends the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. The explosion proof extension cord is 25 feet, providing ample length for moving about the work space. This cord is fitted with four explosion proof twist lock receptacles constructed of non-sparking aluminum on one end for connection of equipment and a 20 amp explosion proof plug on the other end for safe and secure connection to power receptacles.

This cord, and its plug and receptacles, are a 3 pole 2 wire design that works with most common explosion proof equipment. 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. 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 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.

“We offer a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com said. “As a manufacturer, we can also build custom configurations for customers on demand.”

Larson Electronics produces a full range of industrial and commercial lighting equipment, explosion proof extension cords, explosion proof plugs and receptacles, light towers, and LED work lights.
