Larson Electronics adds a new solar powered explosion proof LED light for remote or unmanned hazardous location areas. The new EXPLED-SOL12 explosion proof LED light includes a motion sensor and a day/night sensor for optimal battery use. This explosion proof light is powered by a 14.8 volt LIPoly battery that is recharged by a 12 watt solar panel and is marine-rated for use in salt water environments. The cast aluminum housing is made of high strength copper-free aluminum alloy with a baked powder epoxy finish. Capable of illuminating an area approximately 50 feet long and 50 feet wide with “Wal-Mart parking lot” levels of illumination, this solar powered LED light can run 15 hours with a full 5 hour charge on the battery. The solar panel is mounted outside the hazardous area and the Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 rated LED light is mounted within a the hazardous area via available wall, pendant or ceiling mounts.
“There are a variety of remote locations, including mine sites, pipelines and rigs where workers visit infrequently and have safety concerns,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ larsonelectronics.com. “The EXPLED-SOL12 explosion proof LED light provides a light source that illuminates the work area and provides a light that operators can see from a distance as well.”
Larson Electronics offers a wide variety of explosion proof LED lights for permanent and portable applications, including paint spray booths, rigs, refineries and offshore platforms. You can learn more at Larson Electronics.com or contact 1-800-369-6671 (1-903-498-3363 international).
