Larson Electronics Announces Addition of Magnetic Mount Explosion Proof LED Light
Press release date: January 11, 2013
Larson Electronics has announced today the addition of the EPL-MB-161M-100 explosion proof LED light to its line of industrial grade explosion proof lighting. Producing 10,000 lumens and designed to provide the versatility of magnetic mounting, this light can also be used as pedestal light, allowing operators to place the unit in almost any position desired. With a frame constructed of non-sparking aluminum and a Class 1 Division 1 approved 150 watt LED lamp head, this unit is a light weight and powerful addition to Larson Electronics’ comprehensive inventory of explosion proof lighting solutions.
The EPL-MB-161M-100 magnetic mount explosion proof LED light from Larson Electronics provides operators with a powerful hazardous location suitable lighting solution that can be mounted to almost any metallic surface, or utilized as a standalone pedestal light. The main lamp assembly consists of a round 150 watt LED lamp head which produces 10,000 lumens mounted within a square frame aluminum pedestal base. An additional aluminum mounting bracket equipped with four 200 lbs grip magnetic feet allows operators to mount the bracket to almost any ferrous metallic surface and then hang the light fixture. This two piece mounting system provides excellent versatility and allows the operators to run this light as a standard pedestal light, or as a temporary mounted light for illuminating larger areas. This is also an ideal method of deploying the light at high levels in areas where the lamp must be elevated, either to avoid water or debris on the ground, or simply to gain better coverage of the work area. The 16 inch LED lamp is adjustable and can be moved through vertical adjustment within its bracket by loosening two thumbscrews on either side of the lamp head and positioning it as needed. The LED lamp produces 10,000 lumens of white light in a wide flood pattern for full coverage of large work areas, and has a 60,000 hour operational life rating, providing more output and over 50 times the operational life of a typical halogen work area light. Approvals for this work area light include Class 1 Division 1 & 2 Groups C and D, Class 2 Division 1 & 2 Groups A, B, C, and D, and Class 2, Division 1 - 2, Groups E,F,G. Included with this explosion proof LED light is 100 feet of SOOW cord ending in a 1523 explosion proof straight blade plug, providing ample length for connecting to outlets outside the work area and safe and secure connections. These magnetic mount explosion proof lights are well suited to industrial work areas where portability and easy transport is required and provide high output capable of illuminating larger spaces from a small system.
“The EPL-MB-161M-100 is our new freestanding or magnetic mount explosion proof LED light that makes an operator’s job easier.” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com. “This light setup gives operators needing temporary explosion proof lighting more options for positioning the light source.”
