Larson Electronics Releases 150 Watt Explosion Proof LED Light Fixture that Operates on 347/480V AC
The Larson Electronics EPL-HB-150LED-RT-480V explosion proof high bay light fixture provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaries. LED technology and a compact design make 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 12,500 lumens of high quality light while drawing only 150 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 347-480 VAC, 50/60Hz without any modifications. 347V is common in Western Canada, while 480V is common in the United States and Eastern Canada. 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. This explosion proof LED light fixture is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The LED lamp produces 12,500 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 EPL-HB-150LED-RT-480V 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.”
