|Buy American Compliant The EPL-20W-HID-X12V-100 from Larson Electronics is an Explosion Proof handheld inline low voltage search light that has a Class I Division 1 Groups A, B, C and D approval and produces a brilliant light beam capable of reaching over 2,500 feet, making it ideal for inspection and work activities where long range is important. The EPL-20W-HID-X12V-100 features 100 feet of cord and an inline encapsulated transformer that steps down the input voltage from 120-277V AC down to 12V DC. There is 10` of cord between the transformer and the included general area cord cap. This HID flashlight features always on operation to provide operators with a constant source of light for a variety of applications including tank cleaning, close work and inspections. A single 20 watt short arc Xenide HID bulb powered by an internal ballast produces a 1200 lumen beam capable of reaching up to 2,500 feet. This handheld spotlight is IP68 rated waterproof, making it capable of withstanding submersion under pressure without damage. The beam on this light is a 12° spot configuration and is not adjustable. The HID bulb in this unit provides high power and efficiency as well as a 6500k color temperature, producing a powerful beam that is a brilliant white-blue in color. The durable aluminum body has a black anodized coating to provide durable protection for this units` internal electronics and an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The EPL-20W-HID-X12V-100 explosion proof inline searchlight has a single push button switch that allows easy one handed operation, which combined with its rugged construction and powerful beam, makes it a competent all around flashlight capable of serving in industrial, commercial, tactical and private applications with equal effectiveness.|

Class I Division 1 Groups A, B, C and D
Class I Division 2 Groups A, B, C and D
Class II Division 1 Groups E, F and G
Class II Division 2 Groups E, F and G
A brief note about High Intensity Discharge (HID) flashlights:
Incandescent flashlights have a bulb with a filament, much like the common household light bulb. A consistent amount of current is fed to the bulb. The filament glows and light and heat are produced. The filament glows because it is a poor conductor of electricity. Eventually the filament breaks due to vibration or diminished capacity. HID flashlights have a globe of gas that contains bounded by electrodes. A spark jumps across the electrodes igniting the gas. Initially, the amount of current required to ignite the gas is higher. Once the gas is lit, much less current is required to keep the gas burning.
A device called a ballast controls the amount of current sent to the bulb. HID flashlights use about 50% less energy than incandescent bulbs, which means longer lamp life than halogen incandescent bulbs. More importantly, HID lights have no filament to break. Thus, the HID bulb life is around 2500 hours, compared to several hundred hours of the filament based incandescent bulb. The HID bulb is more efficient, so it produces much more light with less energy over a long period of time. The trade off, however, is that the ballast that sends current to the bulb is an expensive addition, increasing the cost of the flashlight. The bulb itself is also significantly more expensive than halogen bulbs.
Voltage: The step-down transformer installed in-line provide the ability to automatically monitor and adjust input current to maintain the correct LED voltage levels regardless of input levels across a specific range. These transformers can operate on current ranging from 90 to 305V AC or 127 to 431V DC without any modifications necessary as a result. This ability to sense and adjust input current also provides protection against voltage spikes and drops that can occur in electrical systems which would otherwise result in burning up or premature LED failure without it. The inline transformer then steps down the input voltage to 12V DC to power the explosion proof searchlight
*PLEASE NOTE THE LIGHT ITSELF IS EXPLOSION PROOF BUT THE CORD CAP IS NOT AND MUST BE CONNECTED IN A LOCATION SEPARATE FROM THE HAZARDOUS AREA*
