Larson Electronics Releases New Paint Booth Approved Fluorescent Fixture
Press release date: October 15, 2013
The EPL-24-192 explosion proof fluorescent light fixture from Larson Electronics is a two foot long explosion proof fluorescent light featuring a robust 4 lamp configuration and approval for use in the demanding conditions of paint spray booths. This fixture provides high output and excellent light quality through the inclusion of four F24-T5/HO lamps producing a total of 16,000 lumens with a 5000k color temperature. This light is only two feet long, but by utilizing four T5HO lamps Larson Electronics has produced a fixture providing the power of two lamp 4 foot fixtures in a design that can be installed in smaller spaces. The fixture is constructed of copper free aluminum for light weight and high strength, and heavy gauge aluminum reflectors with high gloss finishes provide excellent light distribution. Each fluorescent tube is protected by a heat and impact resistant Pyrex tube cover, and screw on end caps provide easier relamping and more secure sealing than standard knock off end caps. Mounting for this explosion proof light is provided by standard end brackets for mounting to flat surfaces, and optional pendant mounts are available for operators who need more clearance between the fixture and mounting surface. This fixture is multi-voltage capable and can be run with 120 to 277 VAC current. Approvals for this high performance fluorescent fixture include Class 1 Division 1 Groups C and D, Class 1 Division 2, Groups A,B,C, and D, and Class 2 Division 1- 2, Groups E,F,G. This light is also 1598 Marine Type and UL 595 Outdoor Marine lighting approved, meaning it can be used in wet and corrosive marine environments as well. This fixture carries a T6 temperature rating and is an ideal solution for operators who want high power illumination in a shorter fixture that takes up less space without compromising performance.
“The EPL-24-192 is the most powerful explosion proof, two foot luminaire on the market today,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “For customers needing small, but powerful fluorescent light for space constrained, hazardous areas, this eight lamp, two foot fixture fits will exceed the requirements.”
