The Larson Electronics EPEXC-3X-GFCI-12.3-50-3P2W Explosion Proof GFCI cord whip is Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 approved and allows operators to connect lights and equipment into a GFCI protected outlet. This unit comes equipped with 50` of 12/3 SOOW cord terminated in a 20 amp rated explosion proof plug. This cord whip is ideal for operators looking to extend electrical power within hazardous work environments when hard piped outlets are not readily available.
The EPEXC-3X-GFCI-12.3-50-3P2W Explosion Proof GFCI protected cord whip allows operators to safely operate their explosion proof lights or equipment cords within the boundaries of the hazardous work area from explosion proof outlets. These units are constructed of 50 feet of 12/3 SOOW cable and are rated at 20 amps of continuous service. The cord is chemical and abrasion resistant and comes with three in-line, 20 amp, GFCI protected, explosion proof receptacle installed on one end and a 125/250V 3-pole, 2 wire pin and sleeve explosion proof plug installed on the other end.
The plug on this unit is an explosion proof pin and sleeve design. To ensure the highest safety, operators should make connections outside of the hazardous area. Each receptacle`s contacts are deep recessed to avoid accidental contact and will accept standard non explosion proof plugs that are NEMA 5-20R, or 6-20R compatible although explosion proof plugs must be used to preserve explosion proof approval in hazardous environments. Ordinary location plugs will NOT activate this cord`s explosion proof receptacles.
The ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protects against possible injury from unwanted ground faults. This GFCI monitors the amount of current flowing through the unit, and provides immediate identification of faults by tripping the circuit when an imbalance is detected. Both the GFCI and outlet are factory sealed, enclosing any potentially arcing components within the copper free aluminum bodies.
The GFCI protected outlet is mounted to a non-sparking aluminum back brace to provide additional support to the unit. The back brace features a cutout carrying handle to aid in transport and storage, allowing operators to pick up and carry the unit with one hand or for mounting with wall hooks. The EPEXC-3X-GFCI-12.3-50-3P2W is ideal for extending the range of potable equipment within such as lighting systems, power tools, and other electrical equipment within environments where explosive vapors or flammable dusts exist or may exist.
Inter-Compatibility: These cords use T style plugs and will work with non-explosion proof standard receptacles and plugs (NEMA 5-15R, 5-20R, or 6-20R) but will not work with standard 120V wall outlets. The included plugs and receptacles are cross-interchangeable with Crouse Hind™ part# ENP5201 plugs and receptacles and Hubble-Killiark part# UGP-20231 ACCEPTOR® plugs and receptacles. Any equipment requiring these C-H or H-B plugs should work with these cords. Due to possible manufacturer changes we cannot guarantee interchangability although we have made every effort to ensure cross compatibility correctness.
Suggested Applications: Manufacturing, Industrial, Warehouse, Lighting, Explosion Proof Light Fixtures, Grinders, Wet areas or Locations Where Combustible Dust is Present.
