High performance LED drop light outperforms incandescent lamps

Nov 07, 2013

Industrial lighting specialists Larson Electronics announced the release of a new explosion proof LED drop light designed to provide cooler operation and higher performance than standard incandescent drop lights. The EHL-LED-7W-100-1523 Explosion Proof LED Drop Light is approved for Class 1 Division 1 & 2 locations, produces brighter and whiter output than a 100 watt incandescent light, and runs cool to the touch.

The EHL-LED-7W-100-1523 explosion proof LED drop lightfrom Larson Electronics provides performance and durability incandescent drop lights can’t match, and eliminates the danger of accidental burns and broken bulbs commonly encountered with drop lights. This handheld LED droplight features robust aluminum and steel construction, molded rubber bumper guard, 10 watt LED bulb, 100 feet of SOOW cord, and a twist lock explosion proof plug.

This high performance LED work light produces far more lumens per watt than a 100 watt incandescent drop light, and more importantly, produces bright white light with better contrasting and color quality. Unlike the yellowish illumination produced by incandescent bulbs, the output from this lamp is a very clean white, giving it better detail rendering, contrasting, and color reproducing qualities which is very important when performing close work and detail oriented tasks. The LED bulb produces 1050 lumens and has a 50,000 hour life rating, 50 times the hour life of a typical incandescent bulb. This LED lamp won’t shatter or break if dropped, and the LED design means that even after hours of operation, the lamp will be only slightly warm to the touch, virtually eliminating the chances of accidental burns so common with incandescent drop lights. The rugged lamp housing features a tough aluminum lamp cage for added durability, and is lightweight for easy handling while working. An integral aluminum hook provides easy hanging for hands free use, and 100 feet of heavy duty SOOW cord fitted with a twist-lock explosion proof plug provides ample length.

The explosion proof twist lock plug must be used with twist lock receptacles in order to maintain hazardous location compliance and provides a safe and secure connection when within hazardous locations. The EHL-LED-7W-100-1523 explosion proof LED drop light is ideal for operators who must work within areas where flammable gases and vapors may be encountered. This unit is Class 1, Division 1 & 2 for Groups C, D, Class 2, Division 1 and 2 for Groups F, G certified, and an excellent high performance lighting alternative to fragile and hot running incandescent drop lights.

"While incandescent hand lamps can generate enough heat to burn operators that bump into the light, the LED explosion proof hand lamps generally don’t get above the ambient temperature of the area," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ LarsonElectronics.com. "The solid state electronics make the LED light vibration resistant and the 50,000 life hour LED rating enable operators to avoid re-lamping for more than 5 years. Equipped with a 5-15 explosion proof plug, this explosion proof LED hand lamp creates a safer, lower maintenance environment for our military, industrial and petrochemical operators. "
