Longtime leading supplier of explosion proof lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of a heavy duty extension cord equipped with a twist lock explosion proof receptacle and a twist lock or straight blade general use plug to extend the reach of equipment inside hazardous locations.

The EPEXC-25-30A-10.4-GAP explosion proof extension cord from Larson Electronics is designed to extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. This explosion proof cord is 25’ in length, providing ample length for moving about the work space. It is fitted with a single explosion proof 30 amp twist lock receptacle constructed of non-sparking aluminum on one end for connection of equipment and a general area use plug on the other end for connection to power receptacles. The receptacle is a 3 pole 2 wire design which works with most common explosion proof equipment. The cord is oil, chemical and abrasion resistant for durability and the receptacles feature deep recessed contacts for protection against arcing and a powder coat finish for resistance to corrosion. This explosion proof extension cord is Class 1 Division 1 Groups C, D and Class 2 Division 1 Groups E, F, and G rated, making it ideal for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors are present. This cord is perfect for connecting explosion proof lighting, fans and blowers, and extending the range of portable power supplies and substations within the hazardous work area.

“We offer a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com said. “This particular cord is equipped with one explosion proof twist-lock receptacle on one end and a general use plug on the other end for connecting equipment outside of the hazardous area.”
