Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com announced the addition of an explosion proof drop light integrated with an explosion proof reel. Often referred to as explosion proof hand lamps, trouble lights or extension lights, the EPL-FL26-90-HR is a Class 1 Division one rated fluorescent light with 90 foot of cord integrated with a Class 1 Division 1 retractable reel.
Magnalight broaden its line of explosion proof extension lights by offering a 26 watt fluorescent handheld light with explosion proof reel with 90 foot of SOOW integrated cord. While the existing Magnalight range of explosion proof handheld lights are available in cord lengths ranging from 25 feet to 100 feet, the EPL-FL26-90-HR and EPL-FL26-50-HR are available in 90 foot and 50 foot cord lengths as stock models.
Custom configurations are available for longer cord lengths. Both the hand lamp and the reel carry a Class 1 Division 1 rating for hazardous location environments. Operators generally look to wire the reel to a junction box and the reel is used to keep the cord organized, reducing trip hazards and other common issues related to long cords.
“Sometimes operators can use a lower cost reel that is situated outside the hazardous location area, but more often aerospace and military operators are looking for Class 1 Division 1 lights and reels that can be mounted in the hazardous location area,” explained Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com.
