KEMP, Texas, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The EPL-LEDP405 Intrinsically Safe LED Pen Light provides 25 lumens of effective light for up to 20 hours and is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. Designed to operate on common alkaline AAAA batteries and approved under U.L., ATEX, and IECEx safety standards, this compact light is an ideal backup work or task light for plant managers and workers who appreciate the added security of a light they can carry at all times.  


The EPL-LEDP405 Intrinsically Safe LED Pen Light produces 25 lumens and is small enough to be carried in a shirt pocket as easily a normal ink pen. This compact pen light is approved intrinsically safe for hazardous locations and produces enough light for convenient illumination of small tasks and spot check inspections. This durable pen light operates from 3 AAAA batteries for economical operation and can run for up to 20 hours continuously before requiring battery replacement. Operators in hazardous locations will find added versatility from an integral magnet incorporated within the heavy duty housing which allows them to simply attach the light to metallic walls and surfaces for hands free illumination.

These explosion proof lights are ideal for operators or plant managers who frequently inspect tanks or equipment where highly flammable gases and vapors may be present, yet do not require the inconvenience of a dedicated explosion proof portable or hand light.
