Explosion Proof Solar Power LED light fixture from Larson Electronics is the
ideal lighting solution for remote areas and standalone applications where
connection to external power is either impractical or unavailable. This powerful
yet compact hazardous location light delivers crisp, clean light while reducing
operating costs. Charged by the 30 watt solar panel, two 12V AC 8aH sealed lead
acid batteries provide constant, reliable power to the 2 tube, 28 watt fixture.
The EPL-24-2L-LV-SOL ships with a convenient 30’ of 16/3 SOOW cord connecting
the solar panel to the light fixture which allows operators to position the
panel where the most ambient light is available.
This 2 foot long, 2 LED tube, explosion proof solar light fixture is
ideal for use in remote locations requiring powerful yet compact hazardous
location lighting. The EPL-24-2L-LV-SOL features our second generation LED
T-series 14 watt T17 style lamps which produce 15% more illumination at 8 feet
as compared to standard T8 lamps when measured with an Extech light meter. Our
LED-T series bulbs are visibly brighter than standard T8s and have consistently
surprised many of our customers with their unexpectedly high light output
have eliminated the ballast box normally associated with fluorescent fixtures
which reduces overall weight, creates a slimmer unit profile, and helps this LED
fixture maintain a T-6 temperature rating. The solid state design of the LED
lamps gives this fixture superior resistance to damage from vibrations and
extremes in temperature as well as a lamp service life over twice that of
standard T8 bulbs.
Charged by the 30 watt solar panel,
two 12V AC 8aH sealed lead acid batteries provide constant, reliable power to
the 2 tube, 28 watt fixture. These batteries are contained within the solar
panel, not the light. The EPL-24-2L-LV-SOL ships with a convenient 30’ of 16/3
SOOW cord connecting the solar panel to the light fixture which allows operators
to position the panel where the most ambient light is available.
solar panel is equipped with either a day/night sensor and motion sensor or with
an on/off switch. The day/night and motion sensor is programmed to active the
solar panel in the evening and to shut it off during the day while the motion
sensor will activate the panel upon detecting motion. The on/off switch will
activate and shut off the solar panel according to the operator's preference.
Operators can switch between modes with a toggle switch.
EPL-24-2L-LV-SOL provides 10 hours of continuous runtime when the battery is
fully charged. Charging time for the battery bank is 5 hours when exposed to
direct sunlight. As with all solar powered equipment, charging time is affected
by the amount of available ambient light. Indirect sunlight and low ambient
light levels, such as on cloudy days, will extend the charge time.
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 life.
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. Solid state LED lighting is also safer for
the environment as LEDs are 100% recyclable. And recycling simultaneously
reduces operating costs by eliminating the need for the expensive special
disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type lamps.
Electronics has further upgraded the options available with this light. We
expect the light to be mounted separately from the panel. This means the solar
panel can be mounted in direct sunlight (not in the hazardous area) while the
light is mounted in a hazardous area workspace. Standard installation for
explosion proof lighting, including threaded rigid pipe to the LED light fixture
and appropriate seal-offs, etc. are required.
Options: Unless otherwise specified, our standard, most popular
configuration is the bracket end mounting shown above. We also offer a pendant
mount for those needing to suspend the fixture away from the ceiling surface
(i.e. suspend from pipe or conduit).
Standard Bracket Mounts:
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 of 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.
The pictures shown above illustrate the side brackets. The third picture
enlarged below also shows the brackets at the both ends of the light.
EPL-24-2L-LV-SOL is powered by two 12V AC 8aH sealed lead acid batteries that
are recharged by a 30 watt solar panel. These rechargeable batteries provide a
continuous supply of steady, reliable power. The lead acid battery pack is
contained within the solar panel, not the light. This fixture ships with 30 feet
of 16/3 SOOW cord that connects the light fixture to the solar panel. Custom
lengths are available upon request. Please contact us for special
