KEMP, Texas, April 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leader in industrial lighting, Larson Electronics LLC, has announced the release of a new hazardous area colored LED light that is U.S./Canada U.L. approved Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C and D, UL 1598A listed, specifically designed for wet and corrosive marine environments. This United States Coast Guard approved LED features amber, red, green and blue color options and is ideal for oil rigs, ships, chemical storage centers and offshore applications. 

The HALP-48-2L-LED-C hazardous area colored LED light fixture from Larson Electronics is a 56 watt, four-foot-long, two lamp LED fixture that produces 7,000 lumens of top quality hazardous location light that will reduce operating costs, improve light quality and reduce frequent servicing interval downtime. This 34-watt hazardous area fluorescent light fixture produces 2,652 total lumens in a 150º beam angle. The lamp has a 50,000-hour rated lifespan with a T4 operating temperature rating and a UL 1598A outdoor marine rating that meets US Coast Guard specifications.

The HALP-48-2L-LED-C hazardous area LED light fixture is designed for use in wet areas and saltwater-marine environments where corrosion resistance is critical to equipment longevity and safety. The fixture housing is constructed of extruded aluminum with a polycarbonate lens protecting the LEDs during rough use. The two LED T-Style lamps have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation, and have no warm-up or cool-down time, so the colored illumination will be instantaneous. This 2-lamp hazardous location LED has a standard flange mount, which provides some shock absorbency, but suspension mounting is also available for operators who need to mount the fixture away from the ceiling.

“Not many lighting fixtures receive US Coast Guard approval on top of marine ratings,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “The HALP-48-2L-LED-C is a fixture that has been very specially engineered to perform flawlessly in wet hazardous locations, so operators can rest assured this unit will provide the high quality colored LED light it promises.”
