Utility safety: Larson Electronics continues its commitment to providing high grade lighting equipment to specialty markets with the release of an explosion proof tool tap reel with a single explosion proof receptacle. The EPLRT-50-12.3-HR explosion proof cord reel provides easy management of an included 50 ft. of SOOW cord, which gives operators in hazardous locations the ability to easily extend the working reach of tools and lighting equipment. This explosion proof reel is rated Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 2 and includes the reel, the 50 ft. cord and a single matching twist-n-lock plug receptacle.
The cord feeds onto the reel assembly through a 4 roller adjustable cable guide with a ball stop. This reel includes an integral spring actuated ratcheting mechanism for positive cord management housed within the explosion proof threaded slip ring enclosure. The cord reel is assembled to UL 508 table 36.1/NEC Standards and conforms to NEMA 9 and NEMA 4 (IP56) standards as well. The reel is built with modular components, coupled with a spark proof ratchet and hazardous location slip ring housing. This explosion proof cord reel is ideal for use with drop lights and tools in locations where connection to fixed receptacles is unavailable or impractical, and safely extends the operational range without creating the hazards associated with excessive cord length strewn about the work space.
“This cord reel features 50 ft. of SOOW cord and a single explosion proof receptacle that is deep recessed to avoid accidental contact and will not be energized by non-explosion proof plugs which preserves protection in hazardous locations,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “This unit is designed to withstand wet and corrosive conditions such as those found in docks and shipyards.”
Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of LED light towers, portable power distributions, explosion proof lights for hazardous locations, portable work lights and industrial grade LED area lights.
