KEMP, Texas, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Larson Electronics added a Class 1 and Class 2 Division 1 explosion proof LED light designed for use in hazardous location areas. The unique feature of this lighting configuration is that both the light and reel can be used with the hazardous area.


Larson Electronics added a Class 1 and Class 2 Division 1 rated explosion proof LED trouble light on an explosion proof reel to its wide array of hazardous location lighting on Featuring lower operating temperatures, brighter light and drop proof durability, the EHL-LED-7W-50-HR explosion proof hand lamp with 50 foot SOOW cord reduces the need for re-lamping and maintenance. Equipped with a 10 watt LED bulb, this LED hand lamp is suitable for areas requiring UL Class 1 and Class 2 lighting. The explosion proof reel offers a Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 rating, so that both the reel and the trouble light can be installed in hazardous location areas. The EHL-LED-7W-100-HR is also available with a 100 foot SOOW cord. This recent addition comes on the heels of the EHL-FL1524LED-100-HR explosion proof LED light, featuring a 2 foot long LED tube style light with explosion proof reel.

“On operators can see pictures that show that the EHL-LED7W series lights outperform a 100 watt incandescent version of the same light,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ “While incandescent hand lamps can generate enough heat to burn operators that bump into the light, the LED explosion proof hand lamps generally don’t get above the ambient temperature of the area. The solid state electronics make the LED light vibration resistant and the 50,000 life hour LED rating enable operators to avoid re-lamping for more than 5 years. So our explosion proof LED hand lamps and drop lights create a safer, lower maintenance environment for our military, industrial and petrochemical operators. By adding an explosion proof reel to these lights, operators don’t have to find ways to pull the light off a conventional reel that is located outside the hazardous area which creates trip hazards.”

Larson Electronics offers a wide array of UL Class 1 and Class 2 rated LED lighting, including surface mount linear fluorescent replacements, explosion proof LED flashlights and pedestal mount LED lighting for hazardous location areas. You can learn more by visiting, calling 1-800-369-6671 (1-903-498-3363 international) or emailing [email protected]
