larsonelectronics.com Adds LED T-Series Style Stainless Steel Light for Class 1 Division 2 Areas|
For highly vibratory, corrosive environments Larson Electronics introduces the HALSS-48-2L-LED stainless steel light fixture. UL 844 rated Class 1 Division 2, this hazardous area location fixture is designed for saltwater environments with extremes in temperature. Formerly available only with the traditional T8, T12HO or T5HO fluorescent bulbs, the new version offers 4100 lumens, provided by LED t-series bulbs, which augments the light’s ability to withstand vibration and remain in operation longer before re-lamping is necessary.
(PRWEB) September 9, 2009 -- Furthering extending a wide range of explosion proof and hazardous location lighting, Larson Electronics announced the addition of a T-series LED tube based stainless steel light fixture. A fully corrosion resistant light, the HALSS-48-2L-LED contains two 24 Watt LED tubes and produces 4100 lumens. The Larson Electronics T-series bulbs are vibration-proof and last 50,000 hours, while producing approximately 15% more illumination than a common 40 watt T12 bulb. Supported by an integral reflector and encased in a stainless steel housing, the hazardous location area light is ideal for extreme vibration environments, where the fixture will be constantly exposed to saltwater and other substances that would degrade or corrode the aluminum housing based fixtures, like the HAL-48-2L. The HALSS-48-2L-LED is a four foot, 2 lamp light with a UL 844 Class 1 Division 2 rating. Like the HALSS-48-2L, the current fluorescent model, the new stainless steel model with LED tubes is available with approximately 1 week lead time.
“Generally speaking, our stainless steel fixture is used in environments where the fixture is just going to take a pounding,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics. Our reinforced polyester housing model, the HALP-48-2L is ideal for less extreme, but corrosive environments. When there is a lot of vibration, the stainless steel fixture is better suited for longevity. Our HAL-48-2L is a very popular Class 1 Division II fixture, with its extruded aluminum housing and T5HO or T12HO bulbs. We are simply building on that same basic structure and offering different housing materials to suit corrosive environments, which is mainly saltwater related. The HALSS-48-2L, both in fluorescent and now in LED T-series bulbs, offers a flexible mounting system which enables operators to position the light at any angle necessary while securing the fixture to the mounting surface. Built from 14 gauge stainless steel and, this model offers easy re-lamping via accessible high impact acrylic lens cover.
“We are slowly adding line extensions to our explosion proof and hazardous location area lights that incorporate the latest high powered LEDs,” Rob continued. In most cases, this lowers electric consumption and provides at least twice the life of the fluorescent bulbs. Most importantly, these solid stated LED T-series bulbs are vibration proof which improves longevity on oil rigs, marine vessels and other very vibratory applications.”
