Made in the USA
The Larson Electronics EPL-48-2L-LED-LV 12 / 24 Volt Explosion Proof LED Light Fixture is U.S./Canada UL Listed Class 1 Division 1, Class II Division I, and is UL 844 certified for use within oil rigs, paint spray booths and other hazardous location areas. This unit has a T6 temperature rating and carries a paint spray booth certification.
The EPL-48-2L-LED-LV is designed to use Larson Electronics’s specially constructed 12/24 volt LED T-series bulbs which produce 15% more foot candles of illumination at 8 feet as compared to standard T8 lamps and is UL 844 certified Class 1 Division 1 and Class II Division 1. This low voltage fixture can operate on 12 or 24 volts AC or DC. This makes it useful in remote applications where battery banks are used or where OSHA or internal safety standards mandate low voltage lighting. Our LED-T series bulbs are visibly brighter than standard T8s and consistently surprise many of our customers with their unexpectedly high light output levels.
We have replaced two 8 foot dual lamp T8 fixtures in our own facility with our LED T series lamps and produced more illumination in the work area with only one 2 lamp 4 foot long LED fixture. We now offer our second generation LED tube lamps with this fixture which have increased this unit’s performance.
We 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 LEDT8-28W-V1 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.
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.
The 24 watt LED lamps produce more illumination than standard T8 bulbs, but draw only 3/4 of current. An EPL-48-2L-T8 explosion proof fluorescent light, with a combined total of 64 watts, draws 0.54 amps @120 volts. This LED version of the same light, with a total of 48 watts, draws only .4 amps. The EPL-48-2L-LED-LV is multi-voltage and works with any voltage between 9-32V DC, making it ideal for 12 and 24 volt DC applications. We also offer this lamp in a 120-277 standard voltage model.

Our EPL-48-2L-LED-LV 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.
Mounting Options: 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 configurations.
|Surface Mount (Standard) |

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 (Optional) |

Suspension Mounting: 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.
