The Larson Electronics EPL-48-2L Explosion Proof Fluorescent Light Fixture is U.S./Canada U.L. approved Class 1 Division 1 and Class 1 Division 2 for hazardous locations where flammable chemical/petrochemical vapors exist or have the potential to exist. The unit carries a T6 temperature rating, it is also approved for Paint Spray Booths.
The EPL-48-2L fixture is a 4 foot long, 2 lamp, UL listed Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 & 2 explosion proof fluorescent light which is also approved for use in paint spray booth applications. This T6 temperature rated fixture comes standard with two fluorescent lamps. Lamp choices include T5HO, T12HO, and T8. The lamps are protected by heat and impact resistant Pyrex tubes and the fixture is constructed of copper free aluminum alloy. The lamp reflectors are corrosion resistant heavy gauge aluminum and coated with a high gloss reflective finish.This fixture is multi-voltage capable and is available with a variety of lamp options. The EPL-48-2L provides operators in hazardous locations with a reliable and affordable lighting solution that provides the best explosion proof protection available without sacrificing light quality or fixture durability.
We offer a choice of bulbs with all of our explosion proof fluorescent fixtures. However, we standardize on the T-5HO bulbs mostly for longevity and high output. However, many of our customers, including Naval bases, shipyards, oil rigs and petrochemical processing plants operate in very cold conditions, and T-12HO bulbs operate well in those environments. Larson Electronics offers a T12VHO lamp option, 110 watt Very High Output lamps make this fixture an ideal replacement for 400 watt metal halide surface mount fixtures in hazardous location areas requiring Class 1 Division 1 rated lights. *However, the 110 watt T12VHO lamp configuration is not appropriate for paint spray booth applications.

Adjustable Surface Mount Brackets: Each bracket is cinched to the bracket mounting peg on each side of the light. The angle of the bracket is set by tightening two cap screws on either side of the bracket. The cap screws act as a set screw. The bracket itself is mounted via a single 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 loosening the cap screws that hold the bracket to the mounting peg.

Suspension Mounting: Pendant mount fixtures hang from the ceiling and are suspended by rigid pipe. Each fixture features a 1/2” NPT junction box on one end, and a 1/2” NPT adjustable L-bracket on the other end of the fixture. Operators bring rigid pipe down to the threaded mounting hubs. 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. The adjustable L-shape mounting bracket provides support for the opposite end of the fixture.

|08/16/16||How Much Light is Enough Light|
Lighting choices vary, depending on the needs of the applicable location and personal preferences of individuals in the area. A “one size fits all” solution is rarely available when determining the lighting requirements of multiple environments. For example, lighting configurations for an office may differ, compared to a packaging warehouse. Even if the two facilities were the same size, the type of work being carried out in the buildings dictate the properties or characteristics [...]
|02/26/16||Understanding Explosion Proof Lighting Classes Divisions and Groups|
The concept of explosion proof light ratings can be confusing to understand. Hazardous workplace conditions can vary greatly and that means that a comprehensive rating system becomes necessary in order to ensure a safe work environment. [...]
|02/16/16||Lumen vs Foot-Candles – Which Is More Accurate for Measuring Illumination?|
When a customer is looking for lights, the most common question posed is “how bright is this light?” As lighting technology improves, the standard measurements of illumination aren’t always the most accurate in calculating a light’s output. Understanding how each rating is determined will help you choose the best fixture for an application. [...]
|01/28/14||The Future of Lighting: No More Lamp Servicing or Maintenance?|
While on the one hand we are seeing a shift towards an integrated LED lamp/fixture modality, there does exist the potential for a “modular” approach to LED manufacture. This sounds contradictory, but let us explain in a little more detail. While an integrated LED/fixture design is indeed the probable route of future lighting design, the actual totality of an LED based luminaire is based on a combination of several distinct parts or “modules”. LEDs themselves are only represented by the “chip”; t [...]
|11/15/13||LED versus Fluorescent: Lumens per Watt is Only Part of the Story|
Today it is commonplace to find T8 fixtures producing on the order of 80 to 100 lumens per watt of output, putting fluorescent lighting at the top of the efficient lighting ratings in terms of lumen per watt efficiency. However, this does not tell the whole story, and other factors come into play which affect the real world efficiency of fluorescent lighting and brings it a little more down to earth. [...]
|10/05/11||Choosing Spray Paint Booth Lighting and Booth Design |
A poorly lit paint booth with weak ventilation will lead to poorly matched colors and lots of finishing work to deal with paint contaminants. So, it’s best to be realistic and have a few solid ideas of what you are looking for in a paint spray booth in order to ensure that your new booth is all asset and no liability. [...]
|09/26/11||Paint Booth Lights for Modern Paint Types|
Paint manufacturers have taken these physical properties farther, and now use various pigments and materials to enhance the reflective or absorption properties of other materials to produce colors of exceptional intensity and hue. The problem for paint booth operators is obvious; with such complexities introduced into paint coloration and characteristics, being able to accurately match or reproduce colors is made more difficult. When light hitting an object does not contain a full spectrum of co [...]
|09/26/11||Paint Spray Booth Lighting Fundamentals|
Of huge importance to paint spray booth applications is the safety regulation compliance of the lighting equipment and its suitability for use in a hazardous environment. Due to the flammable nature of the chemicals and compounds used within the booth, removing potential sources of ignition is critical. Since any electrical equipment used is a potential source of heat, sparks or flame, it must be properly designed and certified for use in hazardous locations. Paint spry booth lighting that is mo [...]
|02/06/11||LED Fluorescent Tube Fixtures: Efficiency Beyond Lumens vs Watts|
LEDs retain several distinct advantages over fluorescent lamps. LEDs do not require any ballast for their operation. Using entirely solid state electronics, the current and output of LEDs can be easily regulated and maintained. There is no initial startup or warm up period normally associated with ballast equipped luminaries. [...]
|12/16/10||How Do You Know If a Light is really Explosion Proof?|
Hazardous location lighting equipment is in the simplest explanation used in places where concentrations of volatile gases, flammable dust or particulates, or flammable chemicals are high enough to present a danger of ignition that can lead to explosion or fire. [...]
|09/02/10||Spray Booth Lights: Which Type for Best Results?|
Most paint spray booths utilize one of two types of lighting fixtures in their design, either fluorescent tubes, or high intensity discharge lamps. Incandescent lamps are poor choices for spray booth applications because they are highly inefficient, have very short life-spans, and produce copious amounts of heat during their operation. [...]
|08/02/10||Confined Space Lighting for Hazardous Locations |
Confined spaces represent some of the most dangerous work places in commercial industries. Because of their enclosed nature confined spaces are poorly ventilated and allow volatile gases, fumes, vapors, and particulates to accumulate and increase in atmospheric density to potentially explosive levels. Confined spaces represent a hazardous work area and are loosely defined by a few general characteristics. [...]
|07/20/10||“Explosion Proof”: Its Not Just a Label|
Hazardous work areas are one of the most demanding environments for the workers and equipment that must operate within them. The often confined spaces combined with the presence of volatile materials presents a serious danger of fires and explosions that must be adequately addressed to insure the safety of workers and the public in both the work space and the surrounding area.
