Magnalight EPL-24-LED-LV LED LightLarson Electronics’ magnalight.com added the EPL-24-2L-LED-LV low voltage explosion proof LED light to their line of industrial lighting products. Designed to operate off of 12 or 24 volts DC or AC, the 30 watt LED light carries a UL 844 Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 hazardous location rating as well as a separate paint spray booth certification. Featuring a T6 temperature rating, the EPL-24-2L-LED is applicable to most any hazardous location area and a range of accessories including mesh guards, overspray covers, carts and safety cable kits aid the operator in making the light work for their application.

The Magnalight EPL-24-LED-LV low voltage explosion proof LED light is designed to last at least 50,000 hours operating on 12 or 24 volts DC or AC. With specially designed LED tubes with board integrated drivers, this hazardous location light fixture does not have separate ballast reportedly creating minimal maintenance. Designed for long life, the Class 1 Division 1 LED light offers a small 2 foot, 2 lamp form factor and operates natively off of low voltage, including battery banks, small generators, solar panels and other off grid power sources without the need for additional power supplies or transformers. With aT6 temperature rating and a separate paint spray boot certification, the low profile EPL-24-2L-LED-LV explosion proof LED light is application for most any hazardous location area application. Drawing less than 3 amps on 12 volts, a single deep cycle 80 amp hour rated battery could operate this LED light for more than 25 hours. The EPL-24-2L-LED-LV explosion proof LED light is available with a surface or pendant mount mounting configuration. Emergency ballast configurations are also available.

“There is a growing demand for remote area explosion proof LED lighting for small, vibratory areas,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com. “This 2 foot 2 lamp, 30 watt LED light operates on low voltage and meets that need for operators looking for off grid LED lighting for hazardous location areas. Since the areas are remote, the operators want a guarantee that the light will be operational during occasional visits to the remote area. Our LEDs offer long life, extreme temperature resistance and respond well under high vibration. Thus, this UL listed Class 1 Division 1, Class 2 Division 1 LED light is a good fit for a variety of high reliability remote oriented applications. We have seen a lot of uptake on our 120/277 VAC 2 foot 2 lamp EPL-24-2L-LED explosion proof light for small area, standard voltage applications. So we designed a low voltage of our LED bulb with board integrated drivers for the EPL-24-2L-LED-LV for 12/24 Volt applications.

Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com continues to develop and add LED explosion proof lighting for hazardous location areas. The entire range of Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 LED lighting includes LED flashlight, headlights, surface mount linear lights, cart based paint spray booth lights and portable pedestal mount LED lighting.
