LED emergency light provides 90 minutes of illumination in the event that standard operating power is abnormally cut.

Larson Electronics' Lxlite.com introduces an explosion-proof LED emergency light designed to withstand wet and corrosive conditions. Ruggedly built to resist the effects of rust and corrosion, the HALP-EMG-48-2L-LED Explosion Proof LED Emergency Light provides instant and automatic emergency lighting operation in the event of power failures. This LED emergency light provides a safety measure for hazardous locations and 90 minutes of illumination in the event that standard operating power is abnormally cut.

The Halp-emg-48-2l-led emergency LED light performs the same function of a normal explosion-proof light with the safety and reliability of a built-in battery backup system.  Two T8 style LED tube lamps included with this fixture provide a total of 5,900 lumens of white light for illumination of work areas, walkways, storage areas and any location where less-reliable fluorescent fixtures are traditionally used.

These explosion-proof LED lights were designed for resistance to wet and corrosive conditions with a polyester housing reinforced with glass fiber and a poured in gasket sealing an impact resistant acrylic diffuser. Stainless-steel latches provide added protection against corrosion and secure the lamp cover to the housing to prevent drips and water intrusion.

During normal operation the fixture operates from standard 120-277 VAC current. In the event of a power failure, the fixture automatically switches to the battery backup system, which will power a single lamp for a safety standards required minimum of 90 minutes. Once power has been restored, the unit automatically recharges the onboard battery, thus keeping the unit ready for emergency operation at all times.
