The Larson Electronics EPL-HB-100LED-RT-140DB Explosion Proof Low Bay light fixture provides operators with a powerful and energy efficient alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaries. LED technology and compact design makes this lamp an excellent replacement upgrade option for bulky and high maintenance cost older incandescent, metal halide and high pressure sodium lights.
This Class I Division 1 & 2, Class II Division 1 & 2 explosion proof low bay light fixture provides 11,667 lumens of high quality light while drawing only 100 watts. The copper free aluminum alloy body is powder coated for added durability and an attractive aesthetic appearance. Special heat dissipating design in conjunction with LED technology helps this fixture to achieve an excellent 60,000 hour rated lifespan with 80% lumen retention. Light weight and a low profile make this unit an attractive alternative to larger and heavier older fixtures and requires less hardware to install.
The explosion proof LED light fixture features multiple LED drivers which helps to increase the operational life of the fixture. With traditional LED lights, in the event an LED array or driver fails, the entire fixture no longer illuminates. This new series of LED lamps contains eight individual LED boards configured in a series of banks. Each bank contains two LED boards with an individual driver. In the event of a driver failure, only one bank of LEDs will be effected while the other banks will continue to operate. In the event that of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to operate.
Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current applied and emitting light. With LED lights, there is no warm up time or cool down time before re-striking and provide instant illumination when powered on, adding to the reliability of LED technology. By nature, LED light sources run significantly cooler than traditional lamps, reducing the chance of accidental burns and increased temperatures due to heat emissions. This solid state design of light emitting diodes provides a more reliable, stable, durable, and energy efficient light source over traditional lighting.
Beam Angles: When used as a fixed mount fixture, the varying beam angles need to be mounted at certain heights in order to achieve the greatest coverage and efficiency in both high bay and low bay lighting situations. The 60° beam should be mounted in high bay fixtures over 25' in height and 25' away from objects if used as a wall mounted light. The 125° beam is ideal for low bay fixtures in a height range of 15-25 feet and the same distance away from objects when the wall mounting option is employed. The 140° beam is best used as a low bay fixture in areas with a ceiling height of 15' or less or for illuminating objects up to 15' away when wall mounted.
This light is universal voltage capable and 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 explosion proof LED light fixture is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The cast aluminum body and LED lamp give this light excellent durability and resistance to vibration and impacts. The housing is specially designed to dissipate heat which increases the efficiency and lifespan of the LEDs and electronics.
This LED light produces 11,667 lumens with a color temperature of 5600K and a color rendering index of 75 which produces colors and details much more accurately than high pressure sodium or mercury vapor luminaries. We also offer a 3000K warm white and 4500K natural white color temperature options (longer lead times may apply for non-standard temperatures). The EPL-HB-100LED-RT-140DB offers several mounting options including ceiling mounting, pendant mounting, wall mounting and cable mounting. The standard version of this explosion proof LED fixture includes a pendant mount and a surface mount option.
