KEMP, Texas, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Larson Electronics has announced the release of an explosion proof LED light tower designed to provide portable and powerful illumination for locations where flammable or explosive gases and vapors may be present. The HAL-2X150MCE-LED Hazardous Location Extendible LED Light Tower produces 29,580 lumens of light output and is ideal for use in wet locations where hazardous approval and portability is required for safe and effective operations.
The Larson Electronics HAL-2X150MCE-LED hazardous location extendible LED light tower is a powerful yet portable hazardous location lighting solution that provides higher durability and reliability than comparable HID towers without sacrificing power or ease of use. This portable light tower features a rugged tower assembly fitted with dual LED light heads producing 29,580 lumens of high quality light output mounted to a wheeled cart for easy maneuverability. The LED lights on this portable tower each produce 14,790 lumens of light output and are fitted within heavy duty housings constructed of powder coated aluminum with hinged tempered glass doors. These LED lamp assemblies are sealed with heavy duty gaskets and IP65 rated, making them fully resistant to the effects of wet and corrosive environments and thus suitable and safe for use in wet locations. The tower assembly is constructed of non-sparking aluminum and is height adjustable to allow maximum coverage of larger work areas. The base of the tower is also constructed from aluminum and features a pair of solid rubber wheels, allowing operators to simply tilt the entire assembly once set up and roll it into position as needed. The tower, cart, and lamp assembly are comprised of three pieces and can be assembled and disassembled without tools, making it easy to deploy and then break down when ready for storage or transport. All the parts can be stowed on the cart once broken down, providing a compact and easy to load and unload unit that takes up little space and can be easily fitted into the back of a small pickup or SUV. This tripod is powered by 120/277 VAC current and includes 100 feet of SOOW cord fitted with a 1523 explosion proof straight blade plug for safe and secure connections in hazardous locations. Approvals for this explosion proof light tower include Class 1 Division 2, Groups C, D and UL1598 approval for use in marine type environments, making this unit ideal for wet locations where flammable vapors and gases may be present. This portable LED light tower is well suited to industrial and commercial applications where portable illumination carrying explosion proof approval is necessary and offers higher durability and reliability than comparable HID towers without sacrificing any of the illuminating power.
“The HAL-2X150MCE-LED is an alternative to 400 watt metal halide hazardous location lighting,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “This elevated Class 1 Division 2 LED light provides exceptionally bright area lighting for operators in confined
spaces or open areas. The elevated positioning of the lights enables multiple operators to work without creating shadows, while the wheeled weighted base provides stability and easy transportation."
