The Larson Electronics EPO-20A explosion proof power outlet provides durable and secure weatherproof power connection for portable or stationary electrical devices and equipment in locations where equipment is susceptible to wet and corrosive environments. Choose 125V 1 HP or 250V 2HP.
This 20 amp rated power receptacle is ideal for operators seeking a high quality, wet area rated power receptacle suitable for use in industrial and manufacturing applications. This unit`s power receptacle is constructed of copper free aluminum and the housing is malleable iron. The unit is factory sealed and any arcing is safely contained with the interior of the receptacle. The receptacle contacts are deep recessed to avoid accidental contact and will not be energized by non explosion proof plugs to preserve explosion proof protection in hazardous environments. Ordinary location plugs will NOT activate this explosion proof receptacle.
The iron housing is finished in a triple-coat zinc electroplate, chromate and epoxy powder coat while the receptacle is finished with an epoxy powder coat. This unit is designed to withstand wet and corrosive conditions such as those found in docks and shipyards and comes with a spring loaded receptacle door to prevent ingress of water and contaminants when the unit is not in use.
The EPO-20A power receptacle is constructed of non sparking aluminum and finished with an epoxy powder coating while the housing is constructed of triple coated malleable iron for durability and added corrosion resistance. The internal receptacle plug contacts are constructed of brass and designed to maintain constant pressure along their entire length for superior connectivity. The plug receptacle is deeply recessed to prevent accidental contacts and designed for twist lock plug insertion to provide secure connections. A neoprene seal fitted inside the connector receptacle seals against the plug when inserted to provide positive sealing against water ingress. A spring loaded receptacle door provides an automatic weather-tight seal when the plug is removed. In standard installations within the hazardous location area, threaded rigid pipe is brought to the outlet and the outlet is affixes to a mounting surface.
This outlet is a mate for the Larson Electronics EPP-15A and EPP-20-A explosion proof plugs and is compatible with all the Larson Electronics explosion proof lights we make with an explosion proof plug.
