The EPL-DL-12-25-1523 explosion proof drop light from Larson Electronics is designed to operate on 12 volt current and comes complete with 25’ of 16/3 SOOW cord ending in a 15 amp explosion proof plug. The drop light housing is constructed of aluminum with a rubber bumper guard designed to provide an effective lighting solution for operators requiring a versatile source of illumination. The housing is equipped with a swivel hook for hanging and hands free operation. This hazardous location hand lamp is Class 1, Division 1 approved and equipped with a 100 watt incandescent bulb. This drop light is ideal for hazardous work areas where a ready source of easily managed lighting is desired and is suitable for use in areas where petrochemical vapors and various dusts are present. This explosion proof drop light operates on 12 volts AC or DC. This unit is not equipped with an inline transformer; therefor the operator must have a 12 volt low voltage power source to run this light.
“This Class 1 Division 1 explosion proof hand lamp provides portable light within classified locations that require low voltage,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “These hand lamps do not have an inline transformer for low voltage operation. They are designed to work on 12 volts AC or DC so the operator must have a 12 volt power source.”
