The Larson Electronics EPL-EMG-48-2L-LED-D-V2-M1 Dimmable Explosion Proof Emergency LED Light Fixture is NRTL Listed for United States and Canada approved Class I, Division 1 & 2 and Class II, Division 1 & 2 for areas where flammable chemical/petrochemical vapors exist or have the potential to exist. This failsafe explosion proof LED light has a T6 temperature rating and carries a paint spray booth light certification, making it ideal for applications such as paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing, chemical storage, water treatment centers, and food processing plants.
This four-foot, two-lamp dimmable emergency LED fixture is ideal for operators seeking a top quality explosion proof light that will reduce operating costs, improve lighting quality and reduce downtime incurred from frequent servicing intervals. The EPL-EMG-48-2L-LED-D-V2-M1 is equipped with Larson Electronics€™ specially designed LED T-series bulbs which produce 7,000 lumens, resulting in 25% more foot candles of illumination at 8 feet compared to standard T8 lamps when measured with an Extech light meter. Our LED-T series bulbs are visibly brighter than standard T8 units and have consistently surprised many of our customers with their unexpectedly high light output levels.
We now offer our second generation LED tube lamps with this fixture which have increased this hazardous location light€™s performance. This two-lamp explosion proof LED linear fixture is lighter in weight, has a slimmer profile, and produces more light than traditional explosion proof fluorescent fixtures. The four-foot long LED tube design bulbs included with this unit are rated at 50,000 hours of service life, which is over twice as long as standard T8 bulbs.
This emergency backup LED light works, mounts and is wired like our EPL-48-2L-LED explosion proof integrated LED light fixtures. The main difference is that we add a battery backup unit that adds emergency light functionality to the fixture. With an integrated emergency ballast, this explosion proof LED light will continue to operate both LED lamps for 90 minutes at 7,000 lumens after the main electrical power to the light is severed. Once standard electrical power is restored, the emergency battery pack will be recharged. The battery backup unit includes a switched leg for turning the light fixture on/off without kicking the unit into emergency mode.
This fixture carries a T6 temperature rating and is approved for Class I Division 1, Groups C and D, Class I, Division 2, Group A, B, C and D, and Class II, Division 1 and 2, Groups E, F and G environments where flammable or combustible gases, vapors, dusts, fibers, and flying exist or stand the potential to exist. This LED linear fixture is approved for use in confined spaces.
The included dimmable LED lamps have a 50,000+ hour service life, both of which result in extreme efficiency and greatly reduced maintenance costs. These fluorescent style LED lamps have internal drivers, eliminating external power components. The solid state design of the LED lamps give this fixture superior resistance to damage from vibration, extremes in temperature and a lamp service life over twice that of standard fluorescent bulbs. This second generation lamp is offered in 5600K cool white, 4500K natural white, and 3000K warm white. Our standard unit ships with 5600K unless a different color temperature is specified.
These dimmable 28 watt LED tubes work with standard 0-10V dimming controllers. Lumen output is 125 lumens per watt for a total of 3,500 lumens per bulb. While fluorescent lamps are omni-directional and illuminate 360°, the LED style replacement lamps are directional and offer a 150° beam spread. This allows for directed illumination where it is needed and not wasting light via reflectors or over illuminating areas. This dimming LED tube uses electronic silicon control dimming. We have tested these lamps on all Lutron and Leviton electronic dimmers, such as the Leviton 6633-PLW. Please note: the dimmer switch must be installed outside the hazardous environment or use an explosion proof dimmer switch. Larson Electronics offers an explosion proof dimmer switch that can be installed within the hazardous location.
Unlike the glass tube design of traditional fluorescent lamps, these LED T-Style lamps have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation. Instead of using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current applied and emitting light. The LED assembly is mounted to the "tube" constructed from extruded aluminum, with a polycarbonate lens protecting the LEDs. With LED lights, there is no warm up time or cool down time before re-striking and provide instant illumination when powered on, adding to the reliability of LED technology. By nature, LED light sources run significantly cooler than fluorescent lamps, reducing the chance of accidental burns and increased temperatures due to heat emissions. The solid state design of light emitting diodes provide a more reliable, stable, durable, and energy efficient light source over traditional fluorescent lighting.
The LED lamps produce 25% more illumination than standard T8 bulbs while offering lower amp draw and increased reliability. Each lamp produces 3,500 lumens at 125 lumens per watt, for a combined 7,000 total lumen light output. An EPL-EMG-48-2L-T8 explosion proof fluorescent light, with a combined total of 64 watts, draws 0.54 amps at 120 volts AC. This LED version of the same light, with a total of 56 watts, draws only 0.38 amps at 120 volts AC.
The EPL-EMG-48-2L-LED-D-V2-M1 is universal voltage, not multi-tap, and operates on any voltage from 120V to 277V AC 50/60hz without any modifications. We also make a 12/24V AC/DC version for low voltage applications for AC or DC power.
The light fixture is NRTL Listed for United States and Canada approved for use in paint spray booths. Please note, according to the NEC, using threaded rigid pipe does not require additional seal offs with this fixture. An EYM and seal off is necessary for flex conduit or other non-rigid pipe implementations.
Mounting Options: Unless otherwise specified, our standard, most popular configuration is the bracket end mounting shown enlarged below. We also offer a pendant mount for those needing to suspend the fixture away from the ceiling surface (i.e. suspend from pipe or conduit). Additional mounting configurations can be customized to meet the requirements on the application. Please contact us for special mounting configurations.
Adjustable Surface Mount Brackets: Each bracket is cinched to the bracket mounting peg on each side of the light. The angle of the bracket is set by tightening two cap screws on either side of the bracket. The cap screws act as a set screw. The bracket itself is mounted via a single bolt hole at the top the bracket. There are two brackets, one on each end of the light. Once the brackets are mounted to a surface (ceiling, floor or wall), the light fixture can be removed from the brackets by loosening the cap screws that hold the bracket to the mounting peg.

Suspension Mounting: Pendant mount fixtures hang from the ceiling and are suspended by rigid pipe. Each fixture features a 1/2€ NPT junction box on one end, and a 1/2€ NPT adjustable L-bracket on the other end of the fixture. Operators bring rigid pipe down to the threaded mounting hubs. Wiring is fed down through the rigid pipe to the junction box and tied in to the fixture€™s lead wires, completing the electrical connection. The adjustable L-shape mounting bracket provides support for the opposite end of the fixture.
