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
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
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-HB-3X150LED-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
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-HB-3X150LED-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

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
LED light on this unit produces 17,500 lumens for a total of 52,500 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.
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-HB-3X150LED-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

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.
EPL-HB-3X150LED-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.
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
