KEMP, Texas, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Industrial lighting leader, Larson Electronics LLC, has just released an explosion proof string light that can be daisy chained for flexible illumination options, and is Class 1, Division 1 and 2, and Class 2 Division 1 approved. This LED string is ideal for MRO inspection, tank cleaning and other temporary illumination in hazardous locations requiring explosion proof protection.

The EPL-SL-5-20X LED string light is suitable for use in areas where petrochemical vapors and hazardous dust are present. This fixture can be daisy chained together, allowing operators to easily manage a configuration that works best for their job site and move it around as needed. With machined aluminum housing, tempered glass lamp globes and abrasion resistant cord, this unit is extremely durable and resistant to chemicals, abrasion, vibrations and impact. Each LED light fixture has a cast aluminum guard which protects the globe from damage during rugged use. This explosion proof string light is lightweight and has a low profile making it an attractive alternative to larger, heavier traditional fixtures.

With impressive construction and functionality, comes equally impressive LED illumination. This string light contains five LED work lights equipped with aluminum hooks, and are connected along 100 feet of 14/3 SOOW cable, 20 feet in-between each LED. The EPL-SL-5-20X can be ordered in a variety of configurations with choice of 130, 375 or 500 total watts, standard 120VAC at 60Hz, 220VAC at 50Hz or 240VAC at 60Hz, as well as choice of 5-15P, 5-20P or 6-20P explosion proof cord cap.

“The most notable feature in this LED string light is that it can be daisy chained together to create a longer string,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “This provides a lot of flexibility for applications such as MRO turnarounds and tank cleaning.”
