KEMP, Texas, March 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics LLC, leader in industrial lighting, has released an ultraviolet LED light that is explosion proof and approved for use in paint spray booths, UL1598A wet locations and Class I Divisions 1 & 2 and Class II Divisions 1 & 2 areas.

The EPL-24-1L-GSLED-UVA is a UL listed explosion proof LED light fixture that emits light in the ultraviolet spectrum between the 400nm - 315nm, with a peak wavelength of 365nm. This light is T6 rated for hazardous locations where UV lamps are used for a variety of applications. This fixture combines the effective production of UV light with explosion proof protection and LED technology, to provide operators in hazardous locations with a reliable and durable UV lighting solution. This UV lamp is applicable for leak detection, paint spray booths, ink, coatings, and adhesive curing, non-destructive testing, inspection, and food processing.

The EPL-24-1L-GSLED-UVA is constructed of copper free aluminum alloy and protected by heat and impact resistant Pyrex tubes. The lamp’s reflectors are constructed of corrosion resistant heavy gauge aluminum that has been coated with a high gloss reflective finish. This fixture can operate on voltages ranging from 120V-277V 50/60Hz, and includes adjustable surface mount brackets, but can also be suspended from the ceiling with a pendant mount option if desired.
