Each Class 1 Division 2 LED light bulb is rated for 50,000 hours of life and contains solid state technology within an aluminum chassis, making it nearly vibration proof. Common applications for Class 1 Division 2 LED lights include manufacturing, petrochemical and oil field applications.
“Wherever you have a lot of vibration or extreme hot and cold temperatures, LED’s make a lot of sense,” says Rob Bresnahan, with Larson Electronics LLC. “LED hazardous area lights, also known as explosion proof lights, offer much longer life, lower current draw and vibration proof operation. Since the T-series LED lights do not require a ballast, the overall maintenance is reduced to re-lamping only. These lighter weight hazardous location LED lights are easy to install and are available in a variety of voltages. Lately, we have seen more demand for 12 and 24 volt explosion proof and hazardous location lighting, so we now offer these LED T-series fixtures in low voltage and high voltage to meet that demand. The HAL-48-2L-LED is a 4 foot 2 lamp hazardous location light, which is a cousin of the HAL-48-2L which is a fluorescent fixture available with T8, T12HO or T5HO bulbs. That HAL-48 series comes with standard surface mounting brackets suitable for any vertical or horizontal surface and a ¾ threaded hole for conduit. Optional sliding mounting brackets are available for non-contiguous mounting surfaces, beams or replacement of other similar style fluorescent fixtures. With a UL 844 Class 1 Division 2 rating, UL 595 for saltwater marine applications and UL 1598A for outdoor and wet area us, this versatile fixture offer a familiar format with LED benefits. Most importantly, this Class 1 Division 2 LED light is affordable and carries a 7 year warranty."
Rob continued, “While our EPL-48-2L explosion proof light fixture series continues to be the flagship product with its Class 1 Division 1 rating and Paint Spray Booth certification, our second most popular class of fixtures is the HAL series of fluorescent lights. The HAL models feature an aluminum extrusion housing, while the HALP series is built with a polyester blend material that is suitable for corrosive, low vibration environments. For vibratory environments with demanding corrosion resistant requirements, the HALSS series offers stainless steel housings. Now that we have moved into the LED space, these fixtures are available with T12HO, T5HO and T8 fluorescent bulbs as well as our new T series LED bulbs. However, at this time, we only offer the 4 foot models with LED bulbs, while the rest of our fluorescent models are available in 4 foot and 2 foot models."
