Larson Electronics, LLC

Kemp, TX, 75143

Press release date: May 8, 2012

Larson Electronics' announced the release of an explosion proof ultraviolet flashlight with upgraded high ultraviolet output HID bulb to its line of explosion proof flashlights. The rechargeable EPL-UV-20W-G2 has been upgraded with a high intensity discharge bulb that produces most of its output in the UV range, increasing the effectiveness of its ultraviolet beam. Previous versions of this flashlight produced a beam reaching 35 feet in length, but the upgraded HID bulb in this unit increases beam throw to 200 feet while improving UV output as well. This rechargeable black light is ideal for workers in the aerospace and military sectors where portable black lights are used for inspection and testing.

The explosion proof black Light from Larson Electronics' provides operators in law enforcement, military, aerospace and industrial operations with a powerful and safe source of portable ultraviolet light that is equally effective in non hazardous and hazardous locations. This rechargeable UV flashlight is constructed with an aluminum body for durability, an internal ballast, and features a deep anodized finish and rubber lens and end caps for added resistance to dropping and impacts. This unit includes a newly designed HID bulb that produces its peak output in the ultraviolet range of the light spectrum. An included 365 Nm UV cutoff lens further tightens the UV output of the 20 watt HID bulb to help produce a 200 foot long UV light beam that is well suited to aerospace and industrial applications where UV light is used for inspection and testing activities. Although this unit produces peak light output in the UV range of the light spectrum, users can also switch the UV lens with an included clear lens to produce a visible light beam and use it as a normal flashlight. The EPL-UV-20W-G2 black light is rechargeable and comes with a removable 2600mAh lithium ion battery pack that can be unscrewed from the light for recharging and easy replacement when the battery eventually reaches the end of its useful operating life. The long life lithium ion battery pack provides simple charging without any of the confusing charging procedures associated with other battery types and will power this unit for 90 minutes on a single charge. Extra value is added to this explosion proof light through the inclusion of a hard carrying case, separate battery charging stand, US/International compatible AC charging unit), DC vehicle charger and a clear lens allowing use of this light as an ordinary flashlight. This light is approved for use in hazardous locations with a Class 1, Division 1, Groups, A, B, C, & D rating and is IP68 rated waterproof to 3 meters, making it well suited for outdoor use and areas where water and flammable materials may be encountered.

"The EPL-UV-20W-G2 is a High Intensity Discharge flashlight for hazardous locations that is optimized to generate a strong UV beam that peaks at 365nm," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' "This explosion proof UV flashlight is certified Class 1, Division 1 for groups A,B,C and D. Having a certified UV flashlight for areas with Hydrogen and Acetylene is fairly rare, making this explosion proof UV flashlight tool for tank inspection in particular."

Larson Electronics' carries an extensive line of HID flashlights, LED flashlights, intrinsically safe flashlights, explosion proof flashlights and military/law enforcement spotlights.
