Larson Electronics Releases 100W Quadpod Mounted Explosion Proof UV LED Light Tower

KEMP, Texas, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting sector, announced the release of a portable explosion proof Ultraviolet LED light tower. This UV lighting solution produces a 365nm beam and 35,000 mW of high-quality ultraviolet light, ideal for paint spray booths, ink, coatings and adhesive curing, non-destructive testing, inspections, food processing and more. This light tower operates on universal 120-277V AC and is mounted on a portable quadpod that is adjustable and collapsible.

The EPL-QP-1X100LED-UVA-100 portable, explosion proof UV LED lighting system uses special ultraviolet LED light technology, which far surpasses traditional fluorescents, which require coating to block out visible light or a high concentration of gases and chemicals to create the UV light. This process wastes energy and produces unused light. Our UV LEDs have a narrow wavelength band and do not require any special coating, meaning they waste little to no light and save energy. These tighter wavelengths eliminate harmful UV-B and UV-C wavelengths, adding additional safety to workers who operate regularly near the fixtures.

This unit operates on 120-277V AC, 50/60Hz (low voltage option also available) and is equipped with 100 feet of 16/3 SOOW cord fitted with an explosion proof cord cap. Plug options include a 5-15 15-amp straight blade plug for use with 125V explosion proof outlets, a 5-20 20-amp straight blade plug for use with 125V explosion proof outlets, or a 6-20 20-amp straight blade plug for use with 250V explosion proof outlets.

The EPL-QP-1X100LED-UVA-100 has an adjustable non-sparking aluminum collapsible tripod on wheels that can be extended to 12 feet and collapsed to 7 feet. The four leg quadpod mount is constructed from non-sparking powder coated aluminum and features two solid wheels allowing users to tip and wheel the entire assembly to a new location.

This light tower is IP67 rated, dust proof and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. This unit is rated Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D; Class II, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D; and Class III, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups E, F and G. This LED light is also paint spray booth approved and LEL approved.
