Larson Electronics continues its commitment to providing high grade lighting equipment to specialty markets with the release of a 10 watt LED trouble light that is vapor proof, approved for damp locations, and equipped with a waterproof step down transformer.

The VPLHL-10WLED-12I-50 10 watt LED drop light from Larson Electronics produces 1,050 lumens of light and comes complete with 50’ of cable leading to an encapsulated step down transformer. The drop light features a rubberized, insulated handle to provide a safe and secure grip and a stainless steel wire guard enclosure to protect the glass dome. The 10 watt LED lamp has an acceptable operating temperature range of -20°C to +85°C and an operational life of 50,000 hours. The solid state design gives it the ability to withstand impacts and vibrations that would cause a comparable 100 watt incandescent lamp to fail. This LED lamp produces nearly 3 times the illumination of incandescent lamps as measured in foot candles, at less than 1/10th of the electricity usage and without the associated heat.

The encapsulated transformer provides 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 vapor proof task light is universal voltage and configured to operate on high voltage which is then stepped down to low voltage. The AC to DC transformer has 50’ of 16/3 oil and chemical resistant cable on the output side that connects the LED hand lamp to the step down transformer, and 10’ of 16/3 SOOW cable on the input side terminated in an optional industrial grade cord cap.

“This vapor proof work light is equipped with a solid state light emitting diode, allowing the lamp to withstand bumps and vibrations that would normally cause an incandescent hand lamp to fail,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “This work light produces 1,050 lumens of bright, white light while offering an operational life over 50,000 hours.”
