Larson Electronics Releases Explosion Proof LED Light

KEMP, TX, June 13, 2018 – Larson Electronics LLC, leader in industrial emergency lighting, has released a new low-profile explosion proof light fixture with emergency battery backup and motion sensor, that provides users with powerful, energy efficient illumination. This 208-watt LED lamp has a compact design, terminal strips for wiring, and T5 temperature rating with paint spray booth, ATEX and IECEx certifications, making it ideal for paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing, chemical storage and more.

The Larson Electronics EPL-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED-MS Low Profile Explosion Proof Light Fixture with Emergency Battery Backup and Motion Sensor provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaries.

The EPL-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED-MS is a low-profile explosion proof light with emergency backup and motion sensor for Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, Class II, Divisions 1 and 2 locations and provides 27,040 lumens of high quality light drawing just 208 watts. This fixture features two LED lamps, which contain two offset LED assemblies that help the explosion proof lamps achieve a brilliant 100º horizontal beam spread and a 140º vertical spread.

LED technology and compact design makes this lamp an excellent replacement upgrade option for bulky and high maintenance cost older fixtures.

This lightweight low-profile explosion proof LED fixture features a maintenance free sealed lead acid battery, which provides at least 90 minutes of runtime in an emergency. The battery will power one of the lamps at 104 watts and 13,520 lumens.

A motion sensor provides operators with powerful motion detection that covers 15 feet by 15 feet. This copper-free non-sparking aluminum detector can be adjusted -90 degrees to +30 degrees vertically once installed.

The EPL-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED-MS is a compact unit, measuring just 12 inches in width and 3 inches in depth, great for small spaces. This LED light is built with powder coated cast aluminum, and is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion, as well as resistant to vibration and impacts. A special heat dissipating design paired with LED technology helps this unit achieve a 60,000-hour rated lifespan and 80% lumen retention.

The EPL-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED-MS is offered with suspension pendant mounting, chain hang mounting or surface mounting options. This light can operate on standard 100-277V AC, 50/60Hz current without any modifications and comes equipped with terminal strips for wiring.

It is ideal for applications such as paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing, chemical storage, water treatment centers, and food processing plants where flammable gases, vapors, or dusts exist or stand the potential to exist.

“This emergency explosion proof light is great for emergency use in smaller hazardous location spaces,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “It produces twice the light output while taking up less than half the surface area of other larger models and has a maintenance free self-charging battery that runs one lamp during power outages. The addition of a motion sensor offers security as well.”
