A new LED drop light that is Class 1 Division 1 and 2, and Class 2 Division 1 and 2 approved has been introduced by Larson Electronics. It is an option for general activities in hazardous locations that need explosion proof protection and is suitable for areas where petrochemical vapours and hazardous dust are present.
The EHL-LED-7W-200-EPPP has a 200-foot cord that is 16/3 chemical and abrasion-resistant and is equipped with an explosion proof cord. Larson specifically engineered the light with no ballast and a non-sparking aluminum housing to make it lightweight and portable.
The light has a 6000k colour temperature with 1050 lumens of bright white light. Because it is LED, the lamp housing is cool to the touch.
“Traditional drop lights have these heavy ballasts attached that make them heavy and difficult to carry around. They also heat up quickly and can be very hot to the touch,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “We engineered this LED no-ballast drop light for general work lighting because it is super lightweight with housing that stays cool, so you don’t have to worry about accidental burns.”
