KEMP, Texas, March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Industrial lighting leader, Larson Electronics LLC, has announced a new 50 watt explosion proof high bay LED fixture that provides users with 4,333 lumens of powerful, energy efficient illumination. This LED lamp has a compact, low profile design with Class I Division 1 & 2, Class II Division 1 & 2 ratings, making it an ideal elevated lighting system in flammable work sites, manufacturing plants, woodshops and other hazardous locations.

The EPL-HB-50LED-RT-WLM high bay explosion proof light provides 4,333 lumens of high quality light drawing just 50 watts. With a temperature color of 5600K and a color rendering index of 75, this high bay LED produces colors and details much more accurately than traditional high pressure sodium or mercury vapor luminaries. This LED is offered in either a 60 degree or 120 degree beam spread, both perfect for flood illumination. This light can be operated with 100-277 VAC, 50/60Hz. We also offer a low voltage version of this LED fixture that operates on AC/DC voltages from 11-25 Volts.

This lightweight low-profile explosion proof LED is built with powder coated copper free aluminum, and is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion, as well as resistant to vibration and impacts. A special heat dissipating design paired with LED technology helps this unit achieve a 60,000 hour rated lifespan and 80% lumen retention. The EPL-HB-50LED-RT-WLM is equipped with a wall-mounting system and abrasion and chemical resistant SOOW cable with flying leads for easy electrical connection.

“This high bay explosion proof light is a great replacement for bulky, high maintenance traditional fixtures,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “Additionally, it requires much less hardware to install and has a much more convenient field serviceability.”
