Larson Electronics has announced today the release of a powerful high bay LED light designed to provide an easily mounted and adjusted source of explosion proof rated illumination. The EPL-HB-150LED-RT High Bay Fixture is approved for Class 1 Division 1 & 2 locations and features the power, durability and efficiency of LED technology coupled with an easy to install trunnion mount for adjustable positioning.
The EPL-HB-150LED-RT explosion proof high bay led light fixture from Larson Electronics offers operators in hazardous locations a powerful, efficient, and more durable alternative to older and less effective fluorescent or metal halide lighting systems. This explosion proof approved fixture features a 16 inch round aluminum housing body that has been designed for excellent heat dissipation and durability and an aluminum trunnion mount that makes mounting and placement simple and adjustable. This LED area light draws only 150 watts of power, yet produces 12,000 lumens of light output in a wide flood pattern that is ideal for illuminating work areas, warehouse space, processing lines and anywhere large scale illumination is needed. The aluminum housing on this unit is lightweight and specially designed to dissipate heat, helping to maintain LED longevity while providing excellent fixture durability. The LED assembly is rated at 60,000+ hours of operational life, giving this fixture over twice the average life of fluorescent lamps and over one and a half times that of HID systems.
The light output of this fixture has a color temperature of 6000 Kelvin and a color rendering index of 70, making this lamp well suited to applications where color rendering and contrasting is critical such as with assembly lines and small parts inspection operations. This explosion proof light mounts using an included aluminum trunnion bracket that is designed for attachment to flat surfaces such as walls and ceilings. This trunnion mount is predrilled for easy installation, and allows the operators to adjust the position of the lamp once mounted for optimum coverage of the work area. This light is T5 temperature rated and approved for areas deemed as hazardous locations and carries Class 1 Division 1 & 2, Class 2 Division 1 & 2, and Class 3 approvals as well as ETL certifications. The EPL-HB-150LED-RT can be operated with universal 100-277 VAC current and includes a set of long flying leads for easy connection to existing fixture wiring. This explosion proof LED light is an ideal lighting solution for both hazardous and non hazardous locations including petrochemical processing facilities, water treatment plants, warehouses, manufacturing lines, and anywhere operators wish to improve the efficiency and reliability of their lighting systems without sacrificing any overall lighting output.
