Industrial lighting leader Larson Electronics has announced the release of a high power blasting gun light designed to provide the intense light output needed to cut through the dust and debris producing by blasting operations. The BLG-HID-20REX Explosion Proof LED Blasting Gun Light produces 1200 lumens of intense light output and features rechargeable operation and the ability to withstand the abusive conditions associated with blasting operations.

The BLG-HID-20REX explosion proof HID blasting gun light from Larson Electronics provides operators in hazardous locations with a powerful gun mounted blasting light system that can cut through the dust and cloudy conditions caused by media blasting operations. Featuring a 20 watt HID bulb and high efficiency ballast, this light produces 1200 lumens of intense white light to illuminate blasting targets even under dusty and abusive conditions. This light can be mounted to any standard blasting gun to put powerful illumination precisely on the areas being worked with during blasting operations. This HID blasting light has a heavy duty mounting assembly formed from machined aluminum for light weight and durability and a replaceable protective polycarbonate lens shield. To replace the lens shield the operator simply removes the rubber cover, slides out the old shield, and inserts the new one. This shield protects the lens from damage caused by blasting media and slag and allows the operator to maintain full light output during operations. The housing on this blasting light is formed from aerospace grade aluminum for high strength and is IP68 rated waterproof to three meters of submersion, making it ideal for use under wet conditions. The battery is a rechargeable 4800mAh unit that provides 140 minutes of operation on a single charge and can be removed from the light assembly for easier charging. Also included is a 120 VAC wall charging unit that plugs into any standard outlet for convenient and simple charging. This HID blasting light is explosion proof approved and carries Class 1, Division 1 2 and Class 2 Division 1 2 certification. The BLG-HID-20REX high power blasting gun light provides an excellent alternative to standard blasting lights that provides better output and versatility with no cords to cause tripping or limiting of movement around the work area.

“Unlike competitive blasting light solutions, the BLG-LED-20REX gun mounted HID blasting light operates without cords or transformers and offers explosion proof protection for use in hazardous locations,” said Robert Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ “The innovative rechargeable blasting light eliminates the need for replacing batteries or arranging a way to plug the light into an outlet.”
