KEMP, Texas, Feb. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics has announced the release of an explosion proof and paint booth approved LED light fixture that features improved LED tube lamps for higher output and light quality. The EPL-48-2L-LED-G2 Explosion Proof LED Light Fixture is an industrial grade LED light and provides higher output and longer operational life than comparable T8 fluorescent fixtures. Available in standard and low voltage configurations and equipped with replaceable LED tube lamps, this explosion proof light offers better light output and reduced operating costs without any compromise in quality or efficiency.


The Larson Electronics EPL-48-2L-LED-G2 explosion proof LED light fixture provides operators in hazardous locations with a powerful and efficient alternative to traditional fluorescent fixtures without compromising affordability or performance. This LED light fixture provides high output and extreme efficiency through the inclusion of Larson Electronics' second generation series of LED light tubes. These LED tubes produce higher light output than comparable T8 fluorescent lamps while providing twice the operational life and using less power. While standard T8 fluorescent lamps will operate for approximately 20,000 hours before requiring replacement, these solid state LED lamps carry a 50,000 hour rating while producing 98.21 lumens per watt. For operators seeking to maximize the performance of their paint booths, this means lower operating costs through less energy usage and fewer lamp replacements without any compromise in light output or quality. Since these units utilize LED lamps, there is no ballast, further improving reliability as well as reducing fixture weight. These explosion proof fixtures are also suitable for any location designated Class 1 Division 1, Groups C and D, Class 1 Division 2, Groups A,B,C,D, Class2, Division 1 - 2, Groups E,F,G and are UL 595/ UL 1598 suitable for marine type locations as well. Also designed for rugged durability, these explosion proof light fixtures feature a copper free aluminum housing and reflector assembly for light weight and high strength, with impact and heat resistant Pyrex tubes for maximum lamp protection. The EPL-48-2L-LED-G2 runs on universal 120-277VAC current for convenient ease of installation and is available in 12/24 DC configurations for use with low voltages as well. The entire light assembly weighs only 45 lbs and is available in a variety of mounting options including ceiling, pendant and surface mount configurations for versatile installation capabilities. The LED lights in this unit are not integrally installed, meaning operators can easily upgrade to more advanced LED tubes as they become available. Since most manufacturers only provide paint booth approved LED fixtures with integral lamps, this is an attractive and cost effective design that allows operators to keep up with fast paced changes in LED technology without having to replace the entire fixture. The EPL-48-2L-LED-G2 is ideal for operators in hazardous locations who wish to switch to LED technology while maintaining affordability and improving light quality, and provides an ideal solution that can be easily upgraded as desired.

"The EPL-48-2L-LED-G2 is the latest in the line of our most popular explosion proof explosion LED lights, featuring more than 5,000 lumens per fixture," said Rob Bresnahan with  "This light is operational in environments from -50C to 85C, and offers extreme vibration resistance and an attractive price point.  Finally, as technology evolves, customers can simply swap out the LED lamp to future options that may deliver 10,000 lumens or more in a few years, creating a low cost upgrade path for lighting in hazardous area locations."
