Larson Explosion ProofJuly 26 2016

This low profile explosion-proof light fixture provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaries. LED technology and compact design make this lamp an excellent replacement upgrade option for bulky and high maintenance cost older fixtures. 

This explosion proof LED light has a T5 temperature rating and carries a paint spray booth, ATEX and IECEx certifications, and is approved for use in United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia markets. 

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

This Class 1 Division 1 & 2, Class 2 Division 1 & 2 low profile explosion proof light fixture provides 6,760 lumens of high quality light while only drawing 52 watts. The copper free aluminum alloy body is powder coated for added durability and an attractive aesthetic appearance. A 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 at the 60,000-hour mark. The light weight and a low profile make this unit an attractive alternative to larger and heavier older fixtures, and requires less hardware to install.

The EPL-LP-24-LED from Larson Electronics is an integrated low profile linear explosion proof LED light fixture with a unique design. Instead of using diffused glass, optics, or reflectors to distribute the light, Larson Electronics has positioned the boards within the fixture to provide a wide area light without sacrificing quality or light output. Two offset LED assemblies within the fixture allow this explosion proof linear lamp to provide a brilliant 100° horizontal beam spread and 140° vertical beam spread while achieving a 6,760 lumen output to maintain a small form factor. The LED assembly is protected behind a tempered borosilicate glass tube that is protected by an aluminum wire guard to prevent from accident damage to the light fixture.

Measuring only 5" in width, this fixture takes up half the surface area as a standard two foot 2-lamp explosion proof fixture. The surface mount fixture's overall height with adjustable surface mount bracket is under 4.5", including the surface mount bracket itself, making the EPL-LP-24-LED one of the lowest profile explosion proof light fixtures on the market. When compared to our EPL-24-2L-T5HO fixture, the EPL-LP-24-LED fixture produces twice the light output while taking up less than half the surface area. The EPL-LP-24-LED is an ideal for applications with little space where low profile fixtures are required.

Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current is applied and emit light. With LED lights, there is no warm up time or cool down time before re-striking and provide instant illumination when powered on, adding to the reliability of LED technology. By nature, LED light sources run significantly cooler than traditional lamps, reducing the chance of accidental burns and increased temperatures due to heat emissions. This solid state design of light emitting diodes provides a more reliable, stable, durable, and energy efficient light source over traditional lighting.

This light is universal voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277 VAC, 50/60Hz. We also offer a low voltage version of this LED fixture that operates on low voltage from 11-25 volts AC/DC. This explosion proof LED light fixture is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The cast 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 LEDs and electronics.

This LED light produces 6,760 lumens with a color temperature of 5000K and a color rendering index of 75 which produces colors and details much more accurately than high pressure sodium or mercury vapor luminaries. We also offer a 3000K warm white and 4500K natural white color temperature options (longer lead times may apply for non-standard temperatures). The EPL-LP-24-LED is offered with pendant or surface mounting options.  

Adjustable surface mount brackets: each L-shape bracket is machined with three holes per bracket to attach to the light fixture. The angle of the bracket is set by aligning the machined set screw holes on the mounting bracket with index holes attached to the fixture. The bracket itself is mounted via two bolt hole at the top the bracket. There are two brackets, one on each end of the light. Once the brackets are mounted to a surface (ceiling, floor or wall), the light fixture can be removed from the brackets by removing the set screws that hold the bracket to the mounting bracket and adjusting the fixture. The fixture can be adjusted at 15° intervals. 

Suspension mounting: pendant mount fixtures hang from the conduit and are suspended by rigid pipe. Each fixture features a 3/4” NPT junction box on one end, and a eyelet other end of the fixture. Operators bring rigid pipe down to the threaded mounting hub. Wiring is fed down through the rigid pipe to the junction box and tied in to the fixture’s lead wires, completing the electrical connection.

Chain hang mounting: chain hang mount fixtures hang from the chains or metal rope. Two eyelets, one at each end of the fixture, allow operators to attach safety hooks to the fixture during installation. Operators bring flex conduit down to the threaded mounting hub. Wiring is fed down through the flex conduit to the junction box and tied in to the fixture’s lead wires, completing the electrical connection.

Suggested applications: paint spray booths, aircraft maintenance, oil drilling rigs, refineries, solvent and cleaning areas, gas processing plants, chemical manufacturing, waste water treatment plants, gas processing plants, offshore applications, oil tankers, mud tanks, sand mines, mining, and cold weather applications.
