LED work by Larson Electronics announced today the release of a two foot long LED work light with 100 feet of cord ending in an explosion proof plug. Designed to allow users to connect the light to explosion proof outlets within the hazardous workspace, these LED tube equipped work lights surpass the performance of similar fluorescent lamp equipped versions. Producing a glare free wide flood of light, this LED work light is ideal for close work and inspection activities where contrast and color rendering are critical. Built to provide the highest safety and convenience, the EPL-FL1524-LED-100-1523 explosion proof LED tube work light surpasses the performance of similar fluorescent work lights with better light quality and greater durability.

With a high lumen per watt light output, highly efficient reflector design and 100 feet of SOOW explosion proof cord ending in a type 1523 explosion proof plug, this unit exceeds the performance of traditional fluorescent work lamps] while offering the convenience of connection to explosion proof outlets within the hazardous workspace. Approved for Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 2 locations, this LED work light with cord reel is an excellent solution to cumbersome fluorescent work lights that are easily damaged during rough use and eliminates the accidental burns that occasionally occur when using incandescent drop lights. The LED equipped lamp in this unit uses only 15 watts of power to achieve performance beyond that of comparable to 100 watt incandescent work lamps. The light output of this LED work light is distinctly brighter and the light is crisper than the yellowish light from incandescent lamps, making this lamp ideal for operators performing close work and critical inspection duties. Constructed of aluminum with an annealed glass tube shield, this LED work light is highly resistant to damage from dropping and vibrations. 100 feet of explosion proof cord ending in an explosion proof plug provides safe and secure connection to power while inside of the hazardous area. The plug is of a twist-lock design and intended to mate with explosion proof receptacles for absolute explosion proof protection. This plug can also be connected to standard outlets for versatile convenience, but in order to achieve explosion proof approval it must be connected to an explosion proof outlet. Cool operation, extreme durability and full explosion proof protection make this LED work light ideal for those in the petrochemical and manufacturing industries as well as for operators simply desiring an LED work light of above average quality and performance.

“Equipped with our proprietary LED tube bulb, the EPL-FL1524LED explosion proof LED light series is a dramatic improvement over the fluorescent family in light output, current draw and durability for working in hazardous location areas,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ “LED work lights for hazardous location areas are subjected to above normal abuse and changing the lamps is time consuming and difficult to do in dirty work areas. The Magnalight LED bulb eliminates downtime and maximizes safety for operators in Class 1 Division 1 areas and Class 2 Division 1 areas.”
