The Larson Electronics EPL-EMG-48-2L Explosion Proof Emergency Lights Fluorescent light Combination is U.S./Canada UL Listed Class 1 Division 1, Class 1 Division 2 and ideal for hazardous locations where flammable chemical/petrochemical vapors exist or have the potential to exist.
The EPL-EMG-48-2L is a 4 foot long, 2 lamp, UL listed Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1and 2 explosion proof fluorescent light which is equipped with an added battery backup providing 90 minutes of emergency runtime. This T6 temperature rated fixture comes standard with two T-8 fluorescent lamps which produce a combined 5,500 lumens of light. This fixture is multi-voltage capable and provides operators in hazardous locations with a reliable and durable lighting solution that provides explosion proof protection along with the security of an emergency battery backup.

This fluorescent light works, mounts and is wired like our EPL-48-2L explosion proof fluorescent light fixtures. The main difference is that we attach an extra Bodine ballast box to the unit that adds emergency light functionality to the fixture. This explosion proof emergency light will run the standard 90 minutes after power is lost. The light recharges the battery once electrical power is restored. Standard configuration includes a single emergency ballast that will run a single lamp at 2750 lumens for 90 minutes. For an additional charge, a second ballast can be added to run a second lamp for 5500 total lumens output for 90 minutes. The battery backup unit includes a switched leg for turning the light fixture on/off without kicking the unit into emergency mode.
NOTE ON LAMPS: This unit comes equipped with an electronic ballast and F32-T8/841 bulbs which produce 2950 lumens per bulb and have a rated lifespan of 24,000 hours.
Additional mounting options: Unless otherwise specified, our standard, most popular configuration is the bracket end mounting shown in the photos above. 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).
Standard Bracket Mounts: 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. The first picture shown above illustrates the ballast side bracket and also shows the access caps for changing the bulbs. The second picture shows the bracket at the opposite end of the fluorescent light.
|Made in USA Quality||Lamp Options|
1. Each unit dielectrically tested.
2. Fixture arrives assembled and lamped to reduce installation time and cost. Adjustable mounting brackets enable the operator to choose any mounting angle for the fixture, where other models may only offer one or three choices.
3. Fixture constructed of extruded corrosion resistant copper free aluminum alloy.
4. Over-sized, finned ballast housing for 800 mA fixtures provides more heat dissipation and extends ballast life. Larger ballast box accommodates High Output lamp ballasts. Ballast housing easily accessible and externally mounted. Top and bottom covers secured with nuts and bolts, instead of threaded through holes, which can be damaged with dirt.
5. Heavy gauge extruded aluminum reflectors with high gloss reflective finish. Resists dents and corrosion.
6. A wrench is used to unscrew the end caps for relamping the fixture, while other models require the “tap and knock off” method to loosen the end cap.
7. Explosion proof, impact and heat resistant Pyrex tubes provide lamp protection.
F32-T8/841 – 32 watt, 2950 lumens per bulb, 24,000 hours life, 4100 Kelvin color (Suffix –T8)

|07/06/12||What is Explosion Proof Compliance and Why Do We Need Approved Equipment?|
Without an understanding of why equipment approved for hazardous locations is required, it is nearly impossible to properly protect against the dangers hazardous locations present. Equipment designed for use in hazardous locations is designed to protect against the potential for such equipment to ignite flammable or explosive vapors, gases, liquids, dusts and otherwise dangerous flammable atmospheres and materials. [...]
|02/06/11||LED Fluorescent Tube Fixtures: Efficiency Beyond Lumens vs Watts|
LEDs retain several distinct advantages over fluorescent lamps. LEDs do not require any ballast for their operation. Using entirely solid state electronics, the current and output of LEDs can be easily regulated and maintained. There is no initial startup or warm up period normally associated with ballast equipped luminaries. [...]
|12/16/10||How Do You Know If a Light is really Explosion Proof?|
Hazardous location lighting equipment is in the simplest explanation used in places where concentrations of volatile gases, flammable dust or particulates, or flammable chemicals are high enough to present a danger of ignition that can lead to explosion or fire. [...]
|09/02/10||Spray Booth Lights: Which Type for Best Results?|
Most paint spray booths utilize one of two types of lighting fixtures in their design, either fluorescent tubes, or high intensity discharge lamps. Incandescent lamps are poor choices for spray booth applications because they are highly inefficient, have very short life-spans, and produce copious amounts of heat during their operation. [...]
|08/02/10||Confined Space Lighting for Hazardous Locations |
Confined spaces represent some of the most dangerous work places in commercial industries. Because of their enclosed nature confined spaces are poorly ventilated and allow volatile gases, fumes, vapors, and particulates to accumulate and increase in atmospheric density to potentially explosive levels. Confined spaces represent a hazardous work area and are loosely defined by a few general characteristics. [...]
|07/20/10||“Explosion Proof”: Its Not Just a Label|
Hazardous work areas are one of the most demanding environments for the workers and equipment that must operate within them. The often confined spaces combined with the presence of volatile materials presents a serious danger of fires and explosions that must be adequately addressed to insure the safety of workers and the public in both the work space and the surrounding area. [...]
|06/28/10||Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe: There is a Difference|
When it comes to explosion proof lighting many people have trouble understanding exactly what the term means. Factor in that there is also the term “intrinsically safe light” which is related to explosion proof lighting, and the fact that few people have had the benefit of a good layman explanation of the terms, and it becomes clear that there is plenty of room for confusion. [...]
|04/22/10||Explosion Proof Lights: Lessening the Danger in Hazardous Work Areas|
Hazardous work areas present special challenges for the workers and businesses that must operate within them. These work areas are often confined rooms or containers like fuel tanks where vapors and gases from work activities can become concentrated to dangerous levels. As well as the obvious dangers posed by inhalation of these contaminants are the not so obvious dangers that can have lethal consequences if not properly addressed. [...]
