Larson Electronics has announced the release of a new explosion proof LED drop light designed to provide cooler operation and higher performance than standard incandescent drop lights. The EHL-LED-7W-150-EPP LED drop light is approved for Class 1 Division 1 & 2 locations, produces brighter and whiter output than a 100 watt incandescent light, and runs cool to the touch.

The EHL-LED-7W-150-EPP explosion proof LED drop light from Larson Electronics provides performance and durability incandescent drop lights can’t match, and eliminates the danger of accidental burns and broken bulbs commonly encountered with drop lights. This handheld LED droplight features aluminum and steel construction, a molded rubber bumper guard, a 1- watt LED bulb, 150 ft. of SOOW cord, and an explosion proof cord cap. This high performance LED work light produces far more lumens per watt than a 100 watt incandescent drop light and produces bright white light with better contrasting and color quality. Unlike the yellowish illumination produced by incandescent bulbs, the output from this lamp is a very clean white, giving it better detail rendering, contrasting, and color reproducing qualities which is very important when performing close work and detail oriented tasks. The LED bulb produces 1,050 lumens and has a 50,000-hour life rating, 50 times the hour life of a typical incandescent bulb. This LED lamp won’t shatter or break if dropped, and the LED design means that even after hours of operation, the lamp will be only slightly warm to the touch, virtually eliminating the chances of accidental burns. The rugged lamp housing features a tough aluminum lamp cage for added durability, and is lightweight for easy handling while working. An integral aluminum hook provides easy hanging for hands free operation and 150 ft. of heavy duty SOOW cord fitted with an optional explosion proof cord cap. The EHL-LED-7W-150-EPP explosion proof LED drop light is ideal for operators who must work within areas where flammable gases and vapors may be encountered.

“While incandescent hand lamps can generate enough heat to burn operators that bump into the light, the LED explosion proof hand lamps generally don’t get above the ambient temperature of the area,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “The solid state electronics make the LED light vibration resistant and the 50,000 life hour LED rating enable operators to avoid re-lamping for more than 5 years.”

Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of explosion proof LED lights, LED work lights, light towers, intrinsically safe LED lights, portable work lights and industrial grade LED area lights.
