Work lights: 150-watt portable explosion proof LED light

Utility equipment: Larson Electronics has released a Class 1 & 2 Division 1 & 2 portable explosion proof LED light mounted on an adjustable base stand fabricated from non-sparking aluminum. The EPL-24BS-5FT-1X150LED-100 portable explosion proof LED light provides operators an easy to maneuver LED work light for use within hazardous locations. This portable fixture is comprised of a 150 watt LED light head that produces 13,000 lumens of light and is mounted atop a base stand that is fabricated from non-sparking aluminum. The LED light head produces a brilliant flood pattern of light that is ideal for illuminating enclosed areas and hazardous locations where flammable vapors, gases and dusts may be present. The explosion proof LED light head in this unit features multiple LED drivers which help increase the operational life of the fixture. With traditional LED lights, in the event an LED array or driver fails, the entire fixture no longer illuminates. This new series of LED lamps contains twelve LED boards configured in a series of banks. Each bank contains two LED boards with an individual driver. In the event of a driver failure, only one bank of LEDs will be affected while the other banks will continue to operate. In the event of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to operate.

The lamp can be easily adjusted up or down 90° and locked into position by loosening the two hand screws located on the side of the light head. Once the light is in the desired position, the operator then tightens the screws back to set the position. The light frame assembly features a carrying handle on the top for easy transport and a hand screw at the base allowing operators to pivot the top frame assembly on the four leg base stand. The base stand and light stand measure five feet in height. By removing the center extension piece, operators can collapse the unit to about two feet, adding to the versatility of this work light. Included with this portable LED light is 100 feet SOOW cord terminated in an explosion proof straight blade plug. This unit is multi-voltage capable and can be configured to operate on 120-277 volts AC. For added protection to the lens, it is shipped with 25 peel-off Mylar over-spray lamp protectors.

“This 150 watt LED fixture provides operators with a powerful flood beam for work areas within hazardous locations,” Rob Bresnahan with said. “This explosion proof LED light is lightweight, versatile and maintenance free.”

Larson Electronics carries and extensive line of LED lights, boat lights, intrinsically safe LED lights, LED blasting lights and explosion proof lights.
