KEMP, Texas, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics LLC, leader in industrial emergency lighting, has released a new low-profile explosion proof light fixture with emergency battery backup that provides users with powerful, energy efficient illumination. This 208-watt LED lamp has a compact design, terminal strips for wiring, and T5 temperature rating with paint spray booth, ATEX and IECEx certifications, making it ideal for paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing, chemical storage and more.

The EPL-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED is a low-profile explosion proof light with emergency backup for Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, Class II, Divisions 1 and 2 locations and provides 27,040 lumens of high quality light drawing just 208 watts.

This fixture features two LED lamp, which contain two offset LED assemblies that help the explosion proof lamps achieve a brilliant 100º horizontal beam spread and a 140º vertical spread. The fixture’s standard 5000K color temperature produces colors and details more accurately than traditional luminaries. This integrated linear LED fixture uses special positioned boards within the fixture to provide wide area light without sacrificing quality or output. This light can operate on standard 100-277V AC, 50/60Hz current without any modifications and comes equipped with terminal strips for wiring.

This lightweight low-profile explosion proof LED fixture features a maintenance free sealed lead acid battery, which provides at least 90 minutes of runtime in an emergency. The battery will power one of the lamps at 104 watts and 13520 lumens.

The EPL-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED is compact, measuring just 12 inches in width and 3 inches in depth, great for small spaces. This LED light is built with powder coated cast 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-EMGX-LP-2X48-LED is offered with suspension pendant mounting, chain hang mounting or surface mounting options.

“This emergency low profile explosion proof light provides reliable, durable and great for emergency use in smaller hazardous location spaces,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “This fixture produces twice the light output while taking up less than half the surface area of other larger models and has a maintenance free self-charging battery that runs one lamp during power outages.”
