Larson Electronics Adds Tripod Mounted Portable Explosion Proof LED Light to It's Lineup

Press release date: February 15, 2011

Larson Electronics' Magnalight EPL-PM-1x30LED-TP1-100 tripod mounted explosion proof LED light gives operators an easily deployable source of powerful light that can be quickly setup and adjusted to effectively illuminate hazardous work areas, then easily stowed and transported between uses. This led fixture's light weight, easy deployment, high power and good color rendering make it an ideal scene lighting choice for first responders and emergency services. The [EPL-PM-1x30LED-TP1-100 explosion proof LED light __title__ EPL-PM-1x30LED-TP1-100 explosion proof LED light] is rated Class 1 Division 1 and produces more light than a typical 300 watt incandescent lamp while drawing only 30 watts and a tenth of the amps. The light created by this unit has a 5500 Kelvin color temperature which is bright white compared to the yellowish light created by typical incandescent or halogen lamps, producing more effective color rendering and object contrast. The enhanced color rendering and contrast produced by this lamp's light output will be appreciated by operators whose jobs include detail oriented close work since fine details and colors will be rendered more accurately. The LED lamp runs at approximately 55 degrees Fahrenheit, considerably cooler than the 198 degree average of a 300 watt incandescent, resulting in an easier to handle unit and less heat in a confined workspace. The [non sparking collapsible tripod __title__ non sparking collapsible tripod] weighs only 4 pounds and can be extended to five feet and collapsed to 3 feet. The tripod is easily detached from the light, aiding in deployment, storage and transport and allows operators to quickly and securely deploy and elevate the lamp, increasing coverage of the work area. The EPL-PM-1x30LED-TP1-100 is waterproof, constructed of thick copper free aluminum alloy, and rated for use in wet and marine environments. The [Par38 LED lamp __title__ Par38 LED lamp] in this unit provides 3,800 square feet of coverage and is highly resistant to damage from shocks or impacts, greatly reducing the chances of damage should the tower be knocked over, unlike incandescent lamps which may break or shatter. The LED lamp is rated at 50,000 hours of life, providing up to ten years of regular service. This lamp is available in 120 volt 50/60 hz, 220/240 volt 50/60 hz, and 12 volt DC or 24 volt DC versions. 12VDC or 24VDC versions have no transformer and run directly off of DC current making them ideal for mobile applications such as first responder and emergency services. "Magnalight's new explosion LED light with tripod is a multi-voltage, lightweight explosion proof LED light that is ideal for work crews looking for portable hazardous location lighting," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics. "We see a lot of demand from gas companies, in particular, that need a bright, white explosion proof light that they can move around easily. The EPL-PM-1x30LED-TP1-100 is ideal for this application not only because the LED light can be separate from the tripod and used as a pedestal mount explosion proof light, but also because it only draws .25 amps on 120 volts and 2.5 amps on 12 volts. We can configure it either way without a transformer, so companies using an inverter on the utility vehicles can plug it in directly to the inverter and work trucks equipped only with battery and alternator power can use the low voltage version. When you are dealing with explosion proof lighting, you are not talking about real lightweight fixtures or mounts, but I think we have found a way to give operators the best of both worlds while maintaining a Class 1 Division 1 rating. Finally, unlike incandescent version of the explosion proof tripod mount lights, operators don't have to worry about burning themselves or waiting for the lights to cool down before storing them." Larson Electronics' carries a comprehensive inventory of hazardous location lights, explosion proof LED lights, Led light bars, LED flashlights, intrinsically safe LEDs and LED spotlights.
