KENT, Texas, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics' Magnalight has announced the addition of a vapor proof LED light fixture with a 50,000 hour service life rating and multi-voltage capability. The GVP-48-2L-LED, four foot long, two lamp LED light fixture is designed for those who wish to replace or upgrade from fluorescent equipped fixtures and offers better light output with reduced maintenance costs. With no ballast and solid state LED light tubes, this fixture draws less than 0.2 amps of power while offering durability and versatility that common fluorescent fixtures cannot match.


The GVP-48-2L-LED light fixture from Magnalight is based on Magnalight's popular line of explosion proof LED fixtures and provides the same illumination performance, but without the added expense associated with HAZLOC certification and approval. Designed to provide efficient and durable illumination in demanding conditions, this LED equipped fixture is ideal for general area lighting applications where explosion protection is not required but dependable operation is. Included with this unit are two of Magnalight's' high output LED lamps that offer more light than comparable T5HO fluorescent lamps, and a 160 degree beam angle to put more of the light where it is needed and not where it isn't. The LED tube lamp design of this fixture allows Magnalight to do away with the ballast usually required with fluorescent lamps, which reduces fixture weight and the replacement costs associated with ballast failures. These Magnalight LED fixtures can be operated with voltages ranging from 120 VAC to 277 VAC for added versatility and easy connection to a variety of commonly available power options. The GVP-48-2L-LED light fixture is vapor proof, providing a high degree of protection for the internal components, and includes a shatterproof polycarbonate lens for glare free output and added protection against impacts and shocks. Integral aluminum heat sink tube backings provide cool operation and long LED life, while a simple latching system seals the polycarbonate lens to the housing and provides easy access for re-lamping.  The GVP-48-2L-LED light fixture is ideal for indoor-outdoor applications and suitable for use as general purpose lighting, manufacturing shop lighting, dock lighting, lighting on large ships or in shipyards, warehouse lighting, and anywhere a rugged and dependable fixture with high output and efficiency is needed.

"We developed the vapor proof GVP-48-2L-LED light as an alternative to outdoor rated fluorescent lights," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics'  "With 50,000 life hours, high vibration resistance and weatherproof construction, this 38 watt LED light is an ideal solution for outdoor commercial and industrial lighting requirements."
