KEMP, Texas–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–Larson Electronics has announced the release of a powerful new
fluorescent fixture that offers HAZLOC certification combined with the
convenience of dimmable operation. The EPL-48-2L-T5HO-D Dimmable
Explosion Proof Fluorescent Light Fixture features Class 1 Division 1
2 approval and an advanced ballast for dimming capability.

“We are now able to offer a dimmable option for our most popular
explosion proof fluorescent lights”

The Larson Electronics dimmable
explosion proof fluorescent light fixture
gives operators a dimmable
fluorescent lighting solution that features HAZLOC approval as well as
paint spray booth compliance. This 4 foot long explosion proof fixture
features two T5HO lamps as standard equipment and is approved for
locations where flammable gases and vapors are present. The housing is
constructed of non sparking aluminum for high durability, and an
aluminum reflector with high gloss finish provides excellent light
dispersion and distribution. The lamps are protected by Pyrex tubes, and
screws on end caps provide easier relamping and more secure closure than
knock off caps. This explosion
proof fluorescent light
is equipped with an advanced Mark 7 ballast
that allows for dimmable operation, giving operators precise control of
the illumination reaching the targeted area. Mounting is provided by
standard brackets on each end that can be set for angle placement and
locked into place as desired with set screws. This fluorescent fixture
operates with voltages ranging from 120 to 277 VAC, letting it work with
the most common available currents in use today. Certifications include
US/Canada UL Class 1 Division 1 2 Groups A, B, C and D, Class 2
Division 1 2, paint booth approval, and UL 1598 and 595 Marine Type.
This explosion
proof light
is ideal for operators who need high power in a HAZLOC
compliant fixture that can be precisely controlled for the desired
amount of light output when applications call for more subdued

“We are now able to offer a dimmable option for our most popular
explosion proof fluorescent lights,” said Rob Bresnahan with “For customers looking for dimmable paint booth
lighting, the EPL-48-2L-T5HO-D offers the same C1D1 ratings and is
equipped with a dimmable ballast.”
