The EPL-BS-161M-100 Explosion
Proof LED Light from Larson Electronics is rated Class 1 Division 1-2
Groups C & D and Class 2 Division 1-2 and uses a 16 inch LED light head to
produce 17,500 lumens of light while drawing only 150 watts.
EPL-BS-161M-100 explosion proof LED light provides 9,000 square feet of work
area coverage with 17,500 lumens of light output. This portable LED light is
mounted to an A-frame style aluminum base and has an adjustable LED light head
measuring 16 inches wide by 14 inches high. The LED light head on this unit
produces a brilliant flood pattern of light that is ideal for illuminating
enclosed areas and hazardous locations where flammable vapors, gases and dusts
may be present.
explosion proof LED light fixture is comprised of a 16 inch wide square LED
light head mounted within a portable base stand fabricated from non
sparking aluminum with a convenient carrying handle built into the top of the
stand. The aluminum A-frame is powder coated with glossy blue finish for
corrosion resistances and aesthetics. The lamp can be easily adjusted up or down
90 degrees and locked into position by simply loosening the two hand screws
located on either side of the light head and retightening them once the desired
angle is found.

Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no
filaments or fragile housings to break during operation and/or transportation.
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, providing instant illumination with
no warm up or cool down time before re-striking. Because there is no warm up
period, this light can be cycled on and off with no reduction in lamp
lights run at significantly cooler temperatures than traditional metal halide
and high pressure sodium lights and contain no harmful gases, vapors, or
mercury, making them both safer and more energy efficient. No extra energy is
wasted in cooling enclosed work areas due to external heat emissions from bulb
type lights, and the operator risks associated with traditional lighting
methods, such as accidental burns and exposure to hazardous substances contained
in the glass bulbs, are eliminated. In addition, LEDs are also safer for the
environment as they are 100% recyclable, which eliminates the need for costly
special disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type
LED Drivers: Even
in LED fixtures, heat is the single largest factor in premature light failure
and color shifting. As a result, many manufacturers reduce the output of their
LEDs in order to reduce the amount of heat produced. Rather than lower light
output or quality, Larson Electronics addresses this problem with the addition
of electronic LED drivers. These internal drivers provide the ability to
automatically monitor and adjust input current to maintain the correct LED
voltage levels regardless of input levels across a specific range. This not only
reduces the energy dissipation, effectively lowering the operating temperature
of the fixture, but also prevents AC over-voltage and short circuit loading
making this fixture virtually maintenance free. Because the electronic drivers
allow the EPL-PM-150LED-RT to run at a cooler internal temperature and regulates
the electrical current, energy efficiency and LED service hours are maximized
while at the same time reducing operating costs and downtime incurred from the
frequent servicing intervals required with other hotter running
explosion proof LED light fixture features multiple LED drivers which helps to
increase the operational life of the fixture. With traditional LED lights, in
the event an LED array or driver fails, the entire fixture no longer
illuminates. With the EPL-PM-150LED-RT series of explosion proof lamps from
Larson Electronics, each LED fixture contains six individual LED boards
configured in a series of banks. Each bank contains two LED on a single board
with an individual driver. In the event of a driver failure, only one bank of
LEDs will be effected while the other banks will continue to operate. In the
event that of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to

60° Beam Angle
125° Beam Angle Plug

Beam Angles: When
used as a portable lighting solution, the varying beam angles are each
individually ideal for several environments. The 60° beam provides the most
intense beam of the three options. It is perfect for narrow, confined spaces and
is ideally suited for tank cleaning purposes. It offers focused light to provide
ample illumination to tight work spaces and other environments. The 125° beam
offers a more diffused source of light that is also less intense in brightness.
It is a great general area work light and performs well when used for outdoor
illumination. The 140° beam offers a very wide lighting pattern and is ideal for
situations where lighting distance is not a concern, but illumination of a wider
area and even light distribution is. The 140° beam is great for situations that
call for working in close proximity to lights such as in a paint
explosion proof LED flood light produces a total of 17,500 lumens with a color
temperature of 5000K standard 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).
This lamp uses Cree LED units that have been chosen for their high lumen per
watt ratio and extreme longevity. These Cree LEDs generate a robust 86.67 lumens
per watt effective lumen output and have a 80% lumen retention at 60,000 hours,
giving them better efficiency and operational life than traditional light
Serviceability: This explosion proof LED light fixture is field
serviceable. All major internal components can be purchased from Larson
Electronics and installed by a licensed electrician with basic tools. With most
explosion proof fixtures, the fixture must be returned to the manufacturer for
repair work, which presents downtime and long turn around times for repair work.
Larson Electronics addresses this issue with the EPL-PM-150LED-RT series with
field serviceability, allowing operators to perform service work without having
to return the fixture to the manufacturer in the event of damage or
