Leader in industrial lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of a pedestal mount explosion proof light that is a low voltage lighting solution which uses advanced LED technology and an industrial grade design to provide operators in hazardous locations with excellent illumination and low voltage operation.

The EPL-BS-70LED-6XMB-150X12 provides 6,020 lumens of light output in a portable and rugged explosion proof lighting package. Designed with durability in mind, this unit features high output LEDs fitted within a housing constructed of copper free aluminum with a ¾” thermal shock and impact resistant tempered glass. A thermoset powder coated finish and threaded joints lubricated with non-drying lubricant provide added durability and reliable explosion proof protection. The 70 watt lamp produces higher quality illumination with better color rendering and contrasting than typical 400 watt halogen lamps. The lamp can be easily adjusted up or down 90° and locked into position by loosening the two hand screws located on either side of the light head. This explosion proof fixture is comprised of a 70 watt LED light head mounted atop a 12 ½” diameter circular base fabricated from non-sparking aluminum and includes a carrying handle mounted to the top of the light head. The aluminum base has three 200 pound grip magnets and three 100 pound grip magnets to allow the fixture to be temporarily mounted to any metallic surface. Power is provided by an inline transformer which steps 110-277 volts AC current down to 12 or 24 volts DC for low voltage operation and 150’ of SOOW cord terminated in a 5-15 straight blade plug.

“This unit was designed to meet the market needs for a high powered, low voltage LED explosion proof light,” said Rob Bresnahan with “Equipping it with magnets makes it suitable for tank cleaning operations since temporary lighting is required.”
