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. This 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-CPP516 explosion proof LED drop light from Larson Electronics provides performance and durability incandescent drop lights can’t match, and eliminates the danger of accidental burns and broken bulbs commonly encountered.   Unlike the yellowish illumination produced by incandescent bulbs, the output from this lamp is a very clean white light, giving it better detail rendering, contrasting, and color reproducing qualities which is very important when performing close work and detail oriented tasks.

This LED lamp won’t shatter or break if dropped, and the LED design means that even after hours of operation, the lamp will only be slightly warm to the touch, virtually eliminating the chances of accidental burns. The explosion proof pin/sleeve plug must be used with the appropriate pin/sleeve explosion proof receptacle in order to complete total explosion proof protection.
“While incandescent hand lamps can generate enough heat to burn operators that bump into the light, this LED explosion proof hand lamp does not get above the ambient temperature of the area,” said Rob Bresnahan with “This hand lamp is terminated in a pin and sleeve explosion proof plug to ensure complete explosion proof connection within a hazardous area.”
