The Larson Electronics EPL-HB-3X150LED-RT Explosion Proof High Bay light fixture provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaries. LED technology and compact design makes this lamp an excellent replacement upgrade option for the older, bulky and high maintenance cost fixtures.
This Class 1 Division 1 & 2, Class 2 Division 1 & 2 explosion proof light fixture provides 36,000 lumens of high quality light while drawing only 450 watts. The copper free aluminum alloy body is powder coated for added durability and an attractive aesthetic appearance. Special heat dissipating design in conjunction with LED technology helps this fixture to achieve an excellent 60,000 hour rated lifespan with 80% lumen retention. Light weight and a low profile make this unit an attractive alternative to larger and heavier older fixtures and require less hardware to install.
This explosion proof LED light fixture features multiple LED drivers which help to 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. The EPL-HB-3X150LED-RT explosion proof high bay LED fixture contains thirty-six individual 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 that of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to operate.
This light is multi-voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277 VAC, 50/60Hz without any need for a special ballast. The aluminum body and LED lamp give this light excellent durability and resistance to vibration and impacts. The housing is specially designed to dissipate heat which increases the efficiency and lifespan of the LED luminaries. The LED lamp produces 36,000 lumens with a color temperature of 6000K and a color rendering index of 70 which produces colors and details much more accurately than high pressure sodium or mercury vapor luminaries. Pendant and swivel mount brackets are included with this explosion proof LED light fixture.
“Our new explosion proof high bay light fixture is ideal for use in paint spray booths and in hazardous environments,” Rob Bresnahan, with Larsonelectronics.com said. “With more and more industries needing explosion proof lighting, this innovative solution will be in high demand.”
