EPL-48-2L-LED-D Explosion Proof Dimmable LED Light Fixture is United States and
Canada approved Class 1 Division 1 & 2 and Class 2 Division 1 and 2 for
areas where flammable chemical/petrochemical vapors exist or have the potential
to exist. This explosion proof LED light has a T6 temperature rating and carries
a paint spray booth light certification, making it ideal for applications such
as paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing,
chemical storage, water treatment centers, and food processing plants.
four foot, two lamp dimmable LED fixture is ideal for operators seeking a top
quality explosion proof light that will reduce operating costs, improve lighting
quality and reduce downtime incurred from frequent servicing intervals. The
EPL-48-2L-LED-D is equipped with Larson Electronics’ specially designed dimmable
LED T-series bulbs which produce 5,750 lumens.
two lamp explosion proof LED linear fixture is lighter in weight, has a slimmer
profile, and produces more light than traditional explosion proof fluorescent
fixtures. The four foot long LED tube design bulbs included with this unit are
rated at 50,000 hours of service life, which is over twice as long as
standard T8 bulbs.
fixture carries a T6 temperature rating and is approved for Class I Division 1,
Groups C and D, Class I, Division 2, Group A, B, C and D, and Class II, Division
1 and 2, Groups E, F and G environments where flammable or combustible gases,
vapors, dusts, fibers, and flying exist or stand the potential to exist. This
LED linear fixture is approved for use in confined spaces. Click

have eliminated the ballast box normally associated with explosion proof
fluorescent fixtures which reduces overall weight and overall complexity of
installation. There is no ballast in this unit and the included dimmable LEDT8-48-D
LED lamps have a 50,000+ hour service life, both of which result in extreme
efficiency and greatly reduced maintenance costs. These fluorescent LED lamps
have internal drivers, eliminating external power components. The solid state
design of the LED lamps give this fixture superior resistance to damage from
vibration, extremes in temperature and a lamp service life over twice that of
standard fluorescent bulbs. This second generation lamp is offered in 5600K cool
white, 4500K natural white, and 3000K warm white. Our standard unit ships with
5600K unless different color temperature is specified.
dimmable 23 watt LED tubes operate with voltage dimming switches such as the Leviton 6633-PLW. Lumen
output is 125 lumens per watt for a total of 2,875 lumens per bulb. While
fluorescent lamps are omni-directional and illuminate 360°, the LED style
replacement lamps are directional and offer a 160° beam spread. This allows for
directed illumination where it is needed and not wasting light via reflectors or
or over illuminating areas. This dimming LED tube uses electronic silicon
control dimming. We have tested these lamps on all Lutron and Leviton electronic
dimmers, such as the Leviton 6633-PLW. When using electronic dimmer switches,
fixtures equipped with the LEDT8-48-D LED bulb will dim from 0% up to 100% via
the user provided dimming switch. Please note: the dimmer switch must be
installed outside the hazardous environment or use an explosion proof dimmer
switch. This fixture will not work on voltage outside of the 90-132V AC range
and internal damage may occur when higher voltage is applied to the
Unlike the glass tube design of
traditional fluorescent lamps, these LED T-Style lamps have no filaments or
fragile housings to break during operation. Instead of using a combination of
gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive
materials that illuminate when electric current applied and emitting light. The
LED assembly is mounted to the "tube" constructed from extruded aluminum, with a
polycarbonate lens protecting the LEDs. With LED lights, there is no warm up
time or cool down time before re-striking and provide instant illumination when
powered on, adding to the reliability of LED technology. By nature, LED light
sources run significantly cooler than fluorescent lamps, reducing the chance of
accidental burns and increased temperatures due to heat emissions. This solid
state design of light emitting diodes provides a more reliable, stable, durable,
and energy efficient light source over traditional fluorescent lighting.
23 watt LED lamps produce 30% more illumination than standard T8 bulbs while
offering lower amp draw and increased reliability. Each lamp produces 2,875
lumens at 125 lumens per watt, for a combined 5,750 total lumen light output. An
EPL-48-2L-T8-D explosion proof fluorescent light, with a combined total of 64
watts, draws 0.54 amps at 120 volts AC. This LED version of the same light, with
a total of 46 watts, draws only 0.38 amps at 120 volts AC. The EPL-48-2L-LED-D
operates on any voltage from 120V or 277V AC 50/60hz without any modifications.

EPL-48-2L-LED-D LED light fixture is U.S. and Canada approved for use in paint
spray booths. Please note, according to the NEC, using threaded rigid pipe does
not require additional seal offs with this fixture. An EYM and seal off is
necessary for flex conduit or other non-rigid pipe implementations.
Unless otherwise specified, our standard, most popular configuration is
the bracket end mounting shown enlarged below. 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). Additional mounting configurations can be customized to
meet the requirements on the application. Please contact us for special mounting
Adjustable Surface Mount
Brackets: 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 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.
Pendant mount fixtures hang from the ceiling and are suspended by rigid
pipe. Each fixture features a 1/2” NPT junction box on one end, and a 1/2” NPT
adjustable L-bracket on the other end of the fixture. Operators bring rigid pipe
down to the threaded mounting hubs. Wiring is fed down through the rigid pipe to
the junction box and tied in to the fixture’s lead wires, completing the
electrical connection. The adjustable L-shape mounting bracket provides support
for the opposite end of the fixture.
