LED Benefits: Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation and/or transportation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current is applied, providing instant illumination with no warm up or cool down time before re-striking. Because there is no warm up period, this light can be cycled on and off with no reduction in lamp life.
LED lights run at significantly cooler temperatures than traditional metal halide and high pressure sodium lights and contain no harmful gases, vapors, or mercury, making them both safer and more energy efficient. No extra energy is wasted in cooling enclosed work areas due to external heat emissions from bulb type lights, and the operator risks associated with traditional lighting methods, such as accidental burns and exposure to hazardous substances contained in the glass bulbs, are eliminated. In addition, LEDs are also safer for the environment as they are 100% recyclable, which eliminates the need for costly special disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type lamps.
LED Drivers: Even in LED fixtures, heat is the single largest factor in premature light failure and color shifting. As a result, many manufacturers reduce the output of their LEDs in order to reduce the amount of heat produced. Rather than lower light output or quality, Larson Electronics addresses this problem with the addition of electronic LED drivers. These internal drivers provide the ability to automatically monitor and adjust input current to maintain the correct LED voltage levels regardless of input levels across a specific range. This not only reduces the energy dissipation, effectively lowering the operating temperature of the fixture, but also prevents AC over-voltage and short circuit loading making this fixture virtually maintenance free. Because the electronic drivers allow the EPL-EMG-HB-2X150LED-RT to run at a cooler internal temperature and regulates the electrical current, energy efficiency and LED service hours are maximized while at the same time reducing operating costs and downtime incurred from the frequent servicing intervals required with other hotter running lights.
The explosion proof LED light fixture features multiple LED drivers which helps to increase the operational life of the fixture. With traditional LED lights, in the event an LED array or driver fails, the entire fixture no longer illuminates. With the EPL-EMG-HB-2X150LED-RT series of explosion proof lamps from Larson Electronics, each LED fixture contains twelve individual LED boards configured in a series of banks. Each bank contains two LED on a single board with an individual driver. In the event of a driver failure, only one bank of LEDs will be effected while the other banks will continue to operate. In the event that of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to operate.

Beam Angles: When used as a fixed mount fixture, the varying beam angles need to be mounted at certain heights in order to achieve the greatest coverage and efficiency in both high bay and low bay lighting situations. The 60° beam should be mounted in high bay fixtures over 25` in height and 25` away from objects if used as a wall mounted light. The 125° beam is ideal for low bay fixtures in a height range of 15-25 feet and the same distance away from objects when the wall mounting option is employed. The 140° beam is best used as a low bay fixture in areas with a ceiling height of 15` or less or for illuminating objects up to 15` away when wall mounted.
Each LED light on this unit produces 17,500 lumens for a total of 35,000 lumens with a color temperature of 5000K standard and a color rendering index of 75 which produces colors and details much more accurately than high pressure sodium or mercury vapor luminaries. We also offer a 3000K warm white and 4000K natural white color temperature options (longer lead times may apply for non-standard temperatures). This lamp uses Cree LED units that have been chosen for their high lumen per watt ratio and extreme longevity. These Cree LEDs generate a robust 116.67 lumens per watt effective lumen output and have a 80% lumen retention at 60,000 hours, giving them better efficiency and operational life than traditional light sources.
Field Serviceability: This explosion proof LED light fixture is field serviceable. All major internal components can be purchased from Larson Electronics and installed by a licensed electrician with basic tools. With most explosion proof fixtures, the fixture must be returned to the manufacturer for repair work, which presents downtime and long turn around times for repair work. Larson Electronics addresses this issue with the EPL-EMG-HB-2X150LED-RT series with field serviceability, allowing operators to perform service work without having to return the fixture to the manufacturer in the event of damage or failure.

Each LED light fixture has the potential to save $325.00+ per year in electricity alone, not including maintenance costs, operational downtime, reduced productivity, HVAC loads, or carbon footprint. When retrofitting an entire facility with 100s of light fixtures, the return on investment of LED over metal halide becomes evident. |
Voltage: This light is universal voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277V AC, 50/60 Hz without modifications to the fixture, and a low voltage version of this LED fixture that operates on AC/DC voltages from 11-25 volts for rigs and vision systems. 18-48V AC/DC voltages are available for network systems and marine vessels. We also offer an additional 347-480V high voltage, 125-250V DC, and 0-10V dimmable versions of this explosion proof LED light fixture.
Mounting: The EPL-EMG-HB-2X150LED-RT offers several mounting options including ceiling mounting, pendant mounting, and wall mounting. Ceiling and wall applications are mounted using the adjustable swivel mount bracket found on the rear of the unit. Pendant applications are mounted from the ceiling and are suspended by rigid pipe via the 3/4" NPT hub on the back of the explosion proof fixture. Wiring is fed through rigid pipe to the junction box and tied in to the fixture’s lead wires, completing the electrical connection.
This explosion proof LED light fixture is paint spray booth listed, IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The cast aluminum body and LED lamp give this light excellent durability and resistance to vibration and impacts. The housing is specially designed to dissipate heat which increases the efficiency and lifespan of the LEDs and electronics.
