Utility supplies: Larson Electronic has released a heavy-duty extension cord equipped with two twist lock receptacles designed to provide secure connection of explosion proof equipment in hazardous locations. The EPEXC-50-2X20A-12.3 explosion proof extension cord is designed to extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. This explosion proof cord extends to 50 feet, providing ample length for moving about the work space. This cord is fitted with two explosion proof twist lock receptacles constructed of non-sparking aluminum for connection of equipment. It is terminated with a 20-amp explosion proof plug on the other end for safe and secure connection to power receptacles. The cord, the plug, and the receptacles are a 3 pole 2 wire design which works with most common explosion proof equipment.
The two 20-amp power receptacles are constructed of non-sparking aluminum and finished with an epoxy powder coating while the housing is constructed of triple coated malleable iron for durability and added corrosion resistance. The internal receptacle plug contacts are constructed of brass and designed to maintain constant pressure along their entire length for superior connectivity. 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 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.
“Larson Electronics offers a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “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.”
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.
