Larson Electronics Releases Innovative NEW Explosion Proof Light Fixture
Press release date: January 8, 2014
The Larson Electronics EPLC2-HB-2X150LED-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 bulky and high maintenance cost older fixtures.
This Class 1 Division 2, Class 2 Division 1 & 2 explosion proof light fixture provides 25,000 lumens of high quality light while drawing only 300 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 much less hardware to install.
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 25,000 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. The EPLC2-HB-2X150LED-RT offers several mounting options including ceiling mounting, pendant mounting, wall mounting and cable mounting.
“Customers will be amazed at the amount of light produced from a low profile, light weight fixture like this,” Rob Bresnahan, with Larsonelectronics.com said. “With more and more industries needing explosion proof lighting, this innovative solution will be in high demand.”
