KEMP, Texas, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The EPL-MB-161M-100 magnetic mount explosion proof LED light from Larson Electronics provides versatile mounting options in a compact yet high power lighting package. Equipped with 4 magnetic mounting pads and a high output LED lamp assembly, this light provides a portable yet powerful lighting system that can be set up almost anywhere yet is strong enough to illuminate large work areas effectively.


The EPL-MB-161M-100 magnetic mount explosion proof LED light from Larson Electronics provides operators with a powerful hazardous location suitable lighting solution that can be mounted to almost any metallic surface, or utilized as a standalone pedestal light. The main lamp assembly consists of a round 150 watt LED lamp head which produces 10,000 lumens mounted within a square frame aluminum pedestal base. An additional aluminum mounting bracket equipped with four 200 lbs grip magnetic feet allows operators to mount the bracket to almost any ferrous metallic surface and then hang the light fixture. This two piece mounting system provides excellent versatility and allows the operators to run this light as a standard pedestal light, or as a temporary mounted light for illuminating larger areas. This is also an ideal method of deploying the light at higher levels in areas where the lamp must be elevated, either to avoid water or debris on the ground, or simply to gain better coverage of the work area. The 16 inch LED lamp is adjustable and can be moved through vertical adjustment within its bracket by loosening two thumbscrews on either side of the lamp head and positioning it as needed. The LED lamp produces 10,000 lumens of white light in a wide flood pattern for full coverage of large work areas and has a 60,000 hour operational life rating, providing more output and over 50 times the operational life of a typical halogen work area light. Approvals for this work area light include Class 1 Division 1 & 2 Groups C and D, Class 2 Division 1 & 2 Groups A, B, C, and D, and Class 2, Division 1 - 2, Groups E,F,G. Included with this explosion proof LED light is 100 feet of SOOW cord ending in a 1523 explosion proof straight blade plug, providing ample length for connecting to outlets outside the work area and safe and secure connections. These magnetic mount explosion proof lights are well suited to industrial work areas where portability and easy transport is required and provide operators with a small and easily deployed system capable of providing enough output to illuminate larger work spaces.

"The EPL-MB-161M-100 meets the needs of operators that want to position a high powered, explosion proof back light, without losing space to a quadpod or other mounting system," said Rob Bresnahan with "As long as operators are dealing with steel wall structure or tank, they have the option of magnetically mounting this 10,000 lumen light. To add value to the operator, the mounting system can also be used as a standard flood mounting system, which can be carried from location to location as well."
