The ATEX-EPSLED-80-STB-SOL-20C-C1D2-24V explosion proof solar powered LED indicator light operates on 24V DC, a Class I, Division 2 rated solar panel, and eight 24V AC 18aH sealed lead acid batteries. When exposed to direct sunlight, the battery bank charges in five hours. The batteries are housed in a NEMA 4X remote enclosure and charged by the solar panel with a 20-foot 12/2 SOOW cord connecting the light fixture to the solar panel.

Made of aluminum with a temperature-resistant pressed glass lens, this 7-watt lamp is rated for flammable environments and work sites where combustible gas, vapor or mist may be present.
