The Larson Electronics EPL-EMG-24-4L-T5HO
explosion proof fluorescent light fixture
is designed for quality
light output and failsafe operation in locations where hazardous
location compliance is required. This fixture is designed to provide
high light output and extremely reliable operation that is ideal for
hazardous locations where quality illumination is required. Equipped
with four T5HO fluorescent lamps measuring two feet long, this fixture
produces 8,000 lumens with a 5000K color temperature and color rendering
index of 85, providing accurate color rendering and clean detail
contrasting. A built in emergency
battery backup lighting
system allows this fixture to continue
operating at reduced output in the event of power failures. This battery
backup automatically maintains a full charge, and runs the fixture using
one lamp for a standard 90 minutes when power is cut. This fixture is
U.S./Canada approved for Class 1 Division 1 2 and Class
2 Division 1 2 hazardous location lighting
, UL 1598 approved
for marine locations, and certified for paint booth operation. The
EPL-EMG-24-4L-T5HO is multi-voltage capable and works with currents of
120 to 277 VAC. This is an ideal fixture for operators who require
explosion proof compliant lighting that will provide the security of
continued operation in the event of power failures.

“To keep work areas up to code, emergency lighting fixtures are
required,” said Robert Bresnahan of Larson Electronics
“This emergency backup fluorescent light works, mounts, and is wired
like our EPL-24-4L fixtures. The EPL-EMG-24-4L fixture provides work
area illumination and meets the emergency egress requirements.”
