48 Watt Vapor Proof LED Light Fixture with Emergency Battery Backup Released by Larson Electronics

Press release date: Jun 25, 2014

With over 40 years as a leader in the industrial and commercial lighting industry Larson Electronics continues its commitment to providing high-grade lighting equipment to specialty markets with the release of a four foot vapor proof LED light fixture with an emergency battery backup ideal for outdoor applications.

The GVP-EMG-48-2L-LED from Larson Electronics is similar to our popular explosion proof LED fixtures that provide an LED alternative to fluorescent fixtures. These LED fixtures produce more light output with longer lamp life and are vapor proof and impact and vibration resistant. The lamps in this vapor proof fixture are specially designed LED T8 series bulbs which produce 2,160 lumens and have a correlated color temperature of 5,600K. These fixtures are designed for operators who wish to replace fluorescent fixtures with a unit that offers better light output, longer lamp life with reduced maintenance costs as well as lower operating costs. By eliminating the ballast that is normally associated with fluorescent fixtures, the weight of the fixture is significantly reduced and a slimmer profile is created. With solid state LED light tubes, this fixture draws less than 0.4 amps of power while offering durability and versatility that common fluorescent fixtures cannot match.

This emergency LED light includes a battery backup unit that adds emergency functionality to the fixture. The light will run on one bulb at the standard UL suggested 90 minutes after power is lost. The light recharges the battery once the electrical power is restored. Standard configuration includes a single emergency battery backup that is automatically recharged and kept in a ready state. The integral aluminum heat sink tube backings provide cool operation and long LED life, while a simple latching system seals the lens cover to the housing and provides easy access for re-lamping. These units are designed to be surface mounted or hung from cable or chain and includes built in mounts. The GVP-EMG-48-2L-LED is multi-voltage capable and operates on any voltage from 110 volts to 277 volts AC and is also offered in an optional 12-24 volts DC.

“The solid state design of the LED lamps provides this fixture with a longer operational life without high maintenance costs,” said Rob Bresnahan with “The two LED tube lamps in this unit provide more output and longer lamp life than that of a fluorescent fixture.”
