Larson Electronics Releases Explosion Proof and Corrosion Resistant LED Beacon Light
Larson Electronics has announced the release of an explosion proof LED strobe light with non-metallic housing for applications where high resistance to corrosive environments is needed. The HALSB-CRNM-LED Hazardous Area Strobing LED Light Beacon features a high output LED lamp coupled with a corrosion resistant non-metallic housing to provide operators with a powerful and effective signal beacon capable of withstanding the effects of corrosive compounds in areas deemed hazardous locations.
The Larson Electronics HALSB-CRNM-LED hazardous area LED beacon light is designed to provide operators with a hazardous location compliant beacon featuring high visibility and excellent resistant to the effects of corrosive materials and environments. This powerful strobing beacon is constructed with a housing formed from GE Lexan polycarbonate, giving it excellent resistance to the effects of corrosion from exposure to marine environments, high humidity, salt water, and damaging chemicals. A Pyrex lamp globe provides protection for the LED assembly and is also resistant to the effects of damaging environments and heat. This beacon light is NEMA 4X rated against water intrusion, making it suitable for wet locations and hose down areas and is USCG approved for marine locations as well. The LED lamp assembly is designed for high output and longevity, providing brilliant flashing output at a rate of 4 flashes per second with a 50,000 hour operational life rating, and is available in a choice of light colors including white, amber, red, and more for specialized applications. This LED light comes standard in 120-277 VAC configuration for use with standard voltages and is also available in 12/24 VDC configurations for use with low voltages. Larson Electronics offers these units in a standard ceiling mount design, but also offers a choice of pendant and wall mounting designs as well for more versatile installation options. This explosion proof LED light is approved for hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors may be present and carries Class 1,Division 2 Groups A,B,C,D certification with a T2D operating temp rating. Other approvals for this light include UL 595: Marine, UL 1570/1571: Wet Locations, USCG acceptance, and CSA certification. This LED strobe light is ideal for industrial applications where corrosive environments and materials are encountered and an excellent solution for operators in marine applications, wet areas, pulp and paper plants, chemical plants, sewage treatment plants, and other locations which require an effective signal light with high reliability.
“The HALSB-CRNM-LED is our newest LED beacon and it carries a Class 1 Division 2 rating,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “Up until this point, our selection has been limited to Class 1 Division 1 LED beacons, which do carry higher price tags. However this new Class 1 Division 2 LED strobe light offers the same light output as our explosion proof EPSLED-80 LED strobe at about half the price for operators working in Class 1 Division 2 hazardous areas.”
