08/20/09 Larson Electronics Introduces Explosion Proof LED Drop Lights and Hand Lamps

In ongoing effort to bring LED technology to bear in hazardous location areas, Larson Electronics has introduced the EHL-LED-7W explosion proof hand lamp. Throughout the industry, explosion proof hand lamps are also referred to as drop lights, task lights or trouble lights.

There are three main advantages to using this explosion proof handheld LED light

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 20, 2009 -- Equipped with a 100 foot cord, the 7 watt LED light bulb in these explosion proof LED drop lights runs cooler than 100 watt or 75 Watt incandescent bulbs, while generating more white light. The LED bulb offers a longer life of 50,000 hours and does not contain a breakable filament like its incandescent brethren. The EPLHL-LED-7W explosion proof task light is UL 783 rated for Class 1 Division 1 & 2 Groups C and D and Class II Division I & 2 for Groups E, F and G. The explosion proof LED trouble light features a 100 foot SOW cord, aluminum guard and swivel hook.

The ELHL-LED-7W is available in high voltage configurations ranging from 120 Volts to 277 Volts and works on 50hz and 60hz systems. The explosion proof drop light is also available for low voltage applications, including 12 volts and 24 volts, making it ideal for wet area use where GFI is not readily available. The EHL-LED-7W is suitable for hazardous location areas, wet areas and confined spaces where either flammable vapors or explosive dusts are constantly present. Applications for hazardous location LED lights include tanks, vessels, wash down areas, grain elevators, manufacturing facilities and all manner of petrochemical facilities.

“There are three main advantages to using this explosion proof handheld LED light,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics. “First and foremost, we are offering a bulb that is very difficult to break, no matter how many times you drop it. One benefit here is that we are eliminating down time for operators in hazardous location areas. Changing a light bulb in an explosion proof hand lamps requires significant disassembly. If an operator re-assembles the light incorrectly, they could negate its hazardous location characteristics. By offering a vibration resistant LED bulb with long life, we eliminate the need for changing the bulb, which improves safety. Obviously, there is much lower current draw from these LED bulbs, which use less than one tenth of the current of the typical rough service 100 watt incandescent bulbs normally used. While this has “green” energy saving implications, it also extends the run time for operators using generators in remote locations. Most importantly, these LED bulbs produce nearly twice the foot candles and offer much whiter light than either the yellowish type light emitted by the 75 watt or 100 watt incandescent bulbs. Not only is it measurable with a light meter, but is a dramatic difference that is obvious when you put the incandescent and LED models side by side. Incandescent task lights will generally be effective within a 5 foot radius, producing 3 foot candles, which is more or less like working under a street light. The Larson Electronics LED explosion proof light offers more than 5 foot candles over 10 feet, which is comparable to working in a well lit parking light of a new Target or Kroger grocery store. Finally, we are talking about a light that can run for nearly 6 years, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is certainly and ideal configuration for end users and rental fleets alike. Larson Electronics directly controls the development and production of this LED bulb and thus we are able to stand behind it with a 5 year warranty. Basically, anyone using this explosion proof LED trouble light shouldn’t need to replace their bulb for 5 years.”

Larson Electronics offers a wide variety of explosion proof lighting, blowers and other products for hazardous location work areas. Ranging from explosion proof fluorescent lighting for surface mount applications and paint spray booths, to portable, battery powered LED lights, offers a one stop shop for large aerospace companies, energy producers, oilfield companies and military bases around the world.
