KEMP, Texas, March 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Industrial lighting leader, Larson Electronics LLC, has released a third-generation explosion proof LED paint spray booth light fixture that provides operators in hazardous environments powerful, energy efficient illumination. This four-foot two-lamp fixture is rated for Class I Division 1 &2 and Class II Division 1 & 2 areas, and holds paint spray booth, ATEX and IECEx certifications, making it ideal for paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing, chemical storage and more.

The EPL-48-2L-LED-G3 explosion proof LED fixture provides 2,250 lumens of high quality light drawing just 36 watts. This two-lamp explosion proof LED linear fixture is lighter in weight, has a slimmer profile, and produces more light than traditional explosion proof fluorescent fixtures. The four-foot-long LED tube design bulbs included with this unit are rated at 50,000 hours of service life, which is over twice as long as standard T8 bulbs. This LED produces a 150º degree beam spread and has a standard 5600K cool white color temperature to produce colors and details more accurately than traditional luminaries. The LEDS in this unit are the newest evolution in LED technology, giving operators the highest efficiency and lowest power consumption on the market.

This lightweight low-profile explosion proof LED is compact and built with extruded aluminum. The fixture is Marine approved and NEMA 4X and IP67 rated, making it dust-proof and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion, as well as resistant to vibration and impacts.

The EPL-48-2L-LED-G3 is offered with suspension pendant mounting or surface mounting options. This light is universal voltage and can operate on any voltage from 120V to 277V AC 50/60Hz without modifications. There is no ballast in this unit and the included LED lamps have a 50,000+ hour service life, both of which result in extreme efficiency and greatly reduced maintenance costs.

“The EPL-48-2L-LED-G3 provides reliable, durable and safe power to hazardous locations, with maximum efficiency due to the third generation LEDs,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “These LEDs are the most advanced technology out currently, equipping this fixture to greatly out-perform older models and traditional fixtures.”
