Larson Electronics Releases New Class 1 Division 2 Offshore Fluorescent Rig Light Fixture


Leading lighting manufacturer Larson Electronics has announced the release of a new three lamp fluorescent light fixture designed to provide powerful output combined with rugged construction capable of withstanding the rigors of offshore operation.
The HAL-48-3L-BMSW hazardous area LED light fixture features Class 1 Division 2 approvals and corrosion resistant aluminum construction. This hazardous area fluorescent light fixture from Larson Electronics is a compact yet powerful explosion proof approved fixture designed to provide high reliability and excellent resistance to the corrosive effects of the marine environment. This four foot long fixture is equipped with 3 high output fluorescent lamps to produce a compact yet powerful fixture that can be mounted in space limited areas without compromising on light output. The fixture housing is constructed of copper free aluminum for light weight and high strength, and a tough powder coat provides excellent protection against corrosion. A hinged door with a shatterproof acrylic lens protects the lamp assembly and is secured in place with ten zinc coated steel latches. A heavy gauged aluminum reflector provides added efficiency and is coated with a high gloss finish for maximum performance. This fixture is T4A temperature rated and comes standard with 54 watt T5HO lamps producing a combined total of 15,000 lumens. A ½ inch threaded conduit opening provides a secure means of connection, and a pair of swivel mount brackets allows operators to secure the fixture to flat surfaces and adjust the light for optimal coverage of the work area. This fixture can run on voltages ranging from 120 to 277 VAC and is available in 12 or 24 volt DC configurations for use with low voltage direct current. This explosion proof light carries Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C and D approval, UL 595 outdoor marine type approval, UL 1598 marine approval, and is ideal for offshore rig platforms where high light output, high reliability, and the ability to operate in areas where flammable petrochemical gases and vapors may be present is required.
“With three high output fluorescent lamps, swiveling bracket mount, and compact design, this fixture is welcomed in a multitude of applications in the oil and offshore industry,” said Rob Bresnahan with “This hazardous location light fixture comes standard with 54 watt T5HO lamps, but is also offered with more efficient LED lamps as well.”
