Safety equipment: Triple receptacle explosion proof extension cord

Safety equipment: Larson Electronics has released a heavy-duty extension cord that provides secure connection of explosion proof equipment in hazardous locations. The EPEXC-150-3X20A-10.3 explosion proof extension cord extends the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. This explosion proof cord is constructed of 150 feet of 10/3 SOOW cord, providing ample length for moving about the work space. This cord is fitted with three explosion proof twist lock receptacles constructed of non-sparking aluminum for connection of equipment. A 20 amp explosion proof plug terminates this cord for safe and secure connection to power receptacles. The three 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.

This cord, its plug and receptacles are a 3 pole 2 wire design that works with most common explosion proof equipment. 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. 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 to meet customer specifications,” Rob Bresnahan with said. “This particular unit is constructed of three twist-lock receptacles to ensure a safe seal is made before any sparks from electrical contact can take place.”

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.
