Larson Electronics Magnalight Releases Explosion Proof LED Light for Corrosive Environments
KEMP, Texas, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com has announced today the release of an affordable LED explosion proof LED light fixture designed specifically for use in wet and corrosive locations. Able to withstand the damaging effects of wet and corrosive environments, the HALP- 48-2L-LED explosion proof LED light provides high light output combined easy upgrading capability. Costing less than comparable LED lights with permanently integrated LEDs, these fixtures are ideal for cost conscious operators in the petrochemical and industrial marine industries who require durable and effective lighting solutions that can be easily serviced
The HALP- 48-2L-LED Class 1 Division 2 LED Light from Magnalight.com is an ideal lighting solution for those in the marine and petrochemical industries who need a Class 1 Division 2 lighting solution that can stand up to the corrosive effects of marine and wet environments. Featuring non-corrosive materials including a glass fiber reinforced polyester housing, poured in cover gasket, stainless steel cover latches, and impact resistant acrylic diffuser, this light is specifically designed for areas where wetness and corrosive marine conditions are problems. These fixtures are equipped with Magnalight’s high output LED tube lamps, giving them excellent lumen output and contrasting capability as well as a long 50,000+ hour operating life and high resistance to damage from vibrations and impacts. Since these units are equipped with LEDs, the fixtures contain no ballasts, which helps to make these units light in weight and easier to install and service than integral LED fixtures or old style fluorescent units. Unlike many comparable fixtures which rely on integrated LEDs for their high output, HALP- 48-2L-LED provides a lower cost alternative that can be upgraded and re-lamped as easily as a traditional fixture. Fixtures with integrated LED require the operator to replace the whole unit once the fixture reaches the end of its operational life, while the HALP- 48-2L-LED on the other hand allows operators to simply open the unit and replace the lamps. This easy serviceability also means that operators can upgrade to higher output LED lamps as the technology advances, allowing them to save money while improving lighting effectiveness in the future. These explosion proof light fixtures hold added benefits over integrated fixtures as they are much lighter in weight, and with integrated fixtures costing in excess of $1,000 on average, are considerably more cost effective at less than $700.00 in price. The HALP- 48-2L-LED carries UL Class 1 Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D and UL 1598A Marine Type approvals and is compatible variety of voltages including 120V-60hz 220V-50hz 240V-60hz and 277V-60hz. Magnalight maintains a full inventory of explosion proof lighting solutions, which allows them to provide immediate delivery of these lights, oftentimes with same day shipping if an order is received before 4:00pm CT. HALP- 48-2L-LED is a cost effective lighting solution for operators in hazardous locations with corrosive environments that provides long life and reduced operating costs as well as easy upgrade capability.
“The HALP- 48-2L-LED Class 1 Division 2 LED light is ideal for hazardous location areas, including rigs.” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com. “This hazardous location LED light can be upgraded to higher output LED modules for less than $100 as more powerful LEDs become available.”
