Larson Electronics has announced the release of a new explosion proof LED drop light designed to provide cooler operation and higher performance than standard incandescent drop lights. This drop light is approved for Class 1 Division 1 & 2 locations, produces brighter and whiter output than a 100 watt incandescent light, and runs cool to the touch.
The EHL-LED-7W-100-CPP516 explosion proof LED drop light from Larson Electronics provides performance and durability incandescent drop lights can’t match, and eliminates the danger of accidental burns and broken bulbs commonly encountered. This handheld LED droplight features robust aluminum and steel construction, a molded rubber bumper guard, a 10 watt LED lamp, 100 feet of SOOW cord, and a pin/sleeve explosion proof plug. This high performance LED work light produces far more lumens per watt than a 100 watt incandescent drop light and produces a bright white light with better contrasting and color quality. Unlike the yellowish illumination produced by incandescent bulbs, the output from this lamp is a very clean white light, giving it better detail rendering, contrasting, and color reproducing qualities which is very important when performing close work and detail oriented tasks. The LED lamp produces 1050 lumens and has a 50,000 hour life rating, 50 times the hour life of a typical incandescent bulb. This LED lamp won’t shatter or break if dropped, and the LED design means that even after hours of operation, the lamp will only be slightly warm to the touch, virtually eliminating the chances of accidental burns. The rugged lamp housing features a tough aluminum lamp cage for added durability, and is lightweight for easy handling. An integral aluminum hook provides easy hanging for hands free use, and 100’ of heavy duty SOOW cord fitted with a pin and sleeve explosion proof plug provides ample length for use within the work area. The explosion proof pin/sleeve plug must be used with the appropriate pin/sleeve explosion proof receptacle in order to complete total explosion proof protection. The EHL-LED-7W-100-CPP516 explosion proof LED drop light is ideal for operators who must work within areas where flammable gases and vapors may be encountered. This unit is Class 1, Division 1 & 2 for Groups C, D, Class 2, Division 1 and 2 for Groups F, G approved, and is an excellent high performance lighting alternative to fragile and hot running incandescent drop lights.
“While incandescent hand lamps can generate enough heat to burn operators that bump into the light, this LED explosion proof hand lamp does not get above the ambient temperature of the area,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “This hand lamp is terminated in a pin and sleeve explosion proof plug to ensure complete explosion proof connection within a hazardous area.”
