Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com has announced the introduction of a 100-foot long explosion proof extension cord equipped with three receptacles to its line of explosion proof equipment accessories. This 100-foot long explosion proof extension cord incorporates a robust design and three explosion proof outlets to provide a highly convenient and safe method of connecting multiple devices from one power source.

The Magnalight EPEXC-3X-100 explosion proof, three-outlet extension cord is designed to allow operators to connect up to three devices to one power source while providing approved explosion proof protection in Class 1, Division 1 and 2 locations. Reaching a total of 100 feet in length, this chemical and abrasion resistant cord is comprised of heavy-duty, 14/3 SOOW explosion proof cord mated with three explosion proof aluminum receptacles and a single standard T style explosion proof plug. The explosion proof receptacles on this cord are of a 3 Pole 2 Wire configuration, 20-amp rated, and will accept standard non-explosion proof NEMA 5-20R or 6-20R plugs, although explosion proof plugs must be used to maintain explosion proof compliance in hazardous locations. The receptacles on this cord are a twist lock design, requiring the operator to insert the plug and twist it into position until it locks in order to activate the connection. This twist lock configuration provides a secure connection and helps to prevent inadvertent sparks before the connection is made. This extension cord also comes with an extra explosion proof plug for installation on existing devices, which provides operators with the assurance their equipment will connect and operate with this unit. These cords are popularly used with explosion proof lighting and allow multiple fixtures to be connected with a minimum of excess cord left that could pose an obstacle or safety hazard. This three-receptacle extension cord is approved for Class 1, Division 1 and 2; and Class 2, Division 1 hazardous locations and is a durable and safe solution to the problem of providing adequate power sources in areas with limited connections.

“We offer a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors in stock; we also build custom configurations for customers on demand,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com.  “We commonly build these cords for our customers to accompany our explosion proof lights and/or our power distribution systems.”

Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com carries an extensive line of explosion proof cords, hazardous location receptacles and plugs, explosion proof switches, and explosion proof equipment accessories.
