Larson Electronics Introduces Explosion-Proof High Bay LED Light Fixture
Larson Electronics releases an explosion-proof high bay LED light fixture that provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaires, according to the company. The EPL-IBM-3X150LED-RT LED light fixture is constructed with heavy duty materials and built to withstand the most abusive industrial applications in hazardous areas.
This Class 1 Division 1 & 2, Class 2 Division 1 & 2 I-beam mount explosion proof light fixture produces 37,500 lumens of high quality light while drawing only 450 watts, according to Larson. The copper free aluminum alloy body is powder coated for added durability and aesthetics. It gives the light durability and resistance to vibrations and impacts. A special heat dissipating design in conjunction with LED technology helps the fixture achieve a 60,000-hour rated lifespan with 80% lumen retention, according to Larson. The light features a copper free aluminum alloy wire guard that helps protect the lens from accidental damage from machinery and other equipment.
The explosion proof LED light fixture is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The EPL-IBM-3X150LED-RT specially designed I-beam mount allows operators to install the high bay light fixture on existing I-beams via nine pre-drilled holes. After installation, operators can tilt the light 90 degrees in both directions, allowing for precise aiming. The light is multi-voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277 volts AC. The fixture is DLC approved for LED quality and energy efficiency for commercial locations and applicable for Class 1 Division 1 work areas, such as tanks and refineries, loading facilities and other similar environments.
