Larson Electronics’ Releases Pedestal Mounted Hazardous Area Light

Larson Electronics’ has released a metal halide hazardous area pedestal light designed to provide high power illumination in an easily deployed package. A breeze to carry and set up, rated for wet areas, and approved for Class 1 Division 2 hazardous locations, the EPL-PM-2X400MH-100 pedestal light produces 72,000 lumens and can illuminate 50,000 square feet of workspace with brilliant white light. This dual metal halide lamp provides protection in atmospheres where flammable gases and vapors may occasionally be present.  It combines the durability of Magnalight industrial grade lighting with the convenience of hand carried mobility.

The Pedestal Mounted Hazardous Area Light is designed to provide operators with a quickly deployed source of illumination that has all the safety and performance of dedicated permanent mount units. With lamp housings constructed of powder coated non sparking aluminum, 100 feet of SOOW abrasive and oil resistant cord, and a wet area approval rating, this unit is built to stand up to the demanding conditions of the industrial workplace. 

The metal halide lamps mounted to this unit are rated at 400 watts each and produce a total of 72,000 lumens, enough light to illuminate 50,000 square feet of work space. The lamp housings are constructed of aluminum with a durable powder coat finish, have hinged tempered glass doors for easy re-lamping, and contain integral ballasts that allow operation with voltages ranging from 120VAC to 277VAC. Also available are optional configurations for operating with 220 and 480VAC.

The rugged pedestal base on this unit provides a secure platform for easy light placement and includes an integral carrying handle with ergonomic grip for easy carrying from one location in the workplace to another. Included with the light is 100 feet of abrasive and oil resistant SOOW explosion proof cord ending in an ECP 1523 5-15P Class 1 Division 1 explosion proof straight blade plug which provides ample cord length for deployment in large work areas. This pedestal mounted work light is UL rated Class 1 Division 2 Groups C and D is approved for use in wet areas and marine environments, making it an ideal lighting solution for hazardous locations where water resistance is an important requirement.  This pedestal mounted lighting package is an ideal lighting solution for applications including but not limited to: loading docks, shipyards, plant turnarounds, tunnel projects, utility gas plants, and power plant areas.

“For Class 1 Division 2 hazardous areas, the EPL-PM-2X400MH-100 light provides 800 watts of metal halide illumination in a very portable form factor,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’  “This hazardous location flood light was designed for ease of operation; operators can easily take this light up scaffolds or other elevated areas for tank cleaning and preparation.”
