KEMP, Texas, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Longtime leader in the explosion proof lighting industry Larson Electronics has introduced an explosion proof LED light designed for use in Class 1 Division 2 locations to its extensive line of explosion proof lighting solutions.  The HAL-31L-LV 31 Watt Class 1 Division 2 Low Voltage LED Light features high output and 12 or 24 volt DC compatibility combined with a compact yet rugged aluminum housing and is an ideal alternative to less durable HID fixtures.


The Larson Electronics HAL-31L-LV 31 Watt Class 1 Division 2 low voltage LED light is an ideal alternative to fragile and bulky HID fixtures.  This light provides powerful illumination in a compact design capable of operating with 12 or 24 volt DC current.  Rated IP66 rated waterproof and constructed of machined aluminum with an unbreakable polycarbonate lens, this LED light is extremely durable and resistant to the effects of water and dampness.  The small size and aluminum construction makes this unit light weight and ideal for installation in areas where space is limited.  Larson Electronics also offers a choice of beam configurations including a wide angle 100 degree flood for illuminating large areas and a 30 degree spot beam to produce a long reaching beam of light. These LED lights use only 31 watts with a 2.64 amp draw on a 12 volt circuit yet produce 2,416 lumens, making them an excellent alternative to less durable and heavier HID lamps.  The heavy duty aluminum housing is mounted via an included aluminum mounting bracket that allows mounting to flat surfaces while providing vertical adjustability once installed.  Power is supplied to the light through an included 6 feet of two wire connecting lead which provides simple connections and ample length.  This light is Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C, and D approved, carries UL 1598 certification and has a T3 temperature rating. The LEDs in this unit utilize quality Cree X-Lamp XR-E emitters to provide high reliability and 90 lumens per watt output with 70% lumen retention at 50,000 hours of operation. This light is ideal for operators who wish to upgrade from less durable and shorter lived HID fixtures and offer the ability to run on 12 or 24 volt DC current supplied from transformers, vehicles electrical systems, batteries, and portable power sources.

"The HAL-31 LED light is an ideal solution for operators looking for low voltage LED lighting," said Rob Bresnahan with  "We have seen an influx of operators searching for low voltage LED lighting for portable applications, remote installations, mobile trailers and other equipment operating on low voltage.  In many cases, it simply unfeasible to install HID in low voltage environments due to the ballast requirements and incandescent have their own set of frailties that are not conducive to demanding environments.  With a Class 1 Division 2 rating, the HAL-31-LED fills a unique niche in the marketplace for hazardous location lighting."
