Longtime leading supplier of explosion proof lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of a heavy duty extension cord designed to provide secure connection of explosion proof equipment in hazardous locations.

The EPEXC-150-3X20A-10.3 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 constructed of 150’ of 10/3 SOOW cord, providing ample length for moving about the work space. This cord is fitted with three explosion proof twist-lock receptacles constructed of non-sparking aluminum for connection of equipment. A 20 amp explosion proof plug terminates this cord for safe and secure connection to power receptacles. The three 20 amp power receptacles are constructed of non-sparking aluminum, finished with an epoxy powder coating while the housing is constructed of triple coated malleable iron for durability and added corrosion resistance. This cord, its plug and receptacles are 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 extension cord is Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 rated, making it ideal for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors are present.

“We offer a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock to meet customer specifications,” Rob Bresnahan with said. “This particular unit is constructed of three twist-lock receptacles to ensure a safe seal is made before any sparks from electrical contact can take place.”
