The EXHL-HL-LE1-LV from Larson Electronics is an Explosion Proof LED Light Fixture that is a low voltage, handheld lighting solution for hazardous locations. This 12-watt unit provides 1,320 lumens of white light with a color temperature rating of 6,000K. The explosion proof LED fixture also features a 5" ergonomic handle for convenience and comfort during operation.
The EXHL-HL-LE1-LV produces 1,320 lumens of high-intensity LED light for illumination within hazardous areas and potentially explosive work environments. The low voltage unit is available in two lighting configurations: spot or flood. The spot configuration features a 10° beam that measures 800`L and 140` W. The flood configuration throws a 40° beam that measures 300`L and 225`W. With a high color-temperature rating of 6,000K the handheld LED fixture offers improved detection of dangerous elements, obstructions and abnormal conditions in the surrounding area.
This explosion proof LED light from Larson Electronics is rated NEMA Type 3, 4, 4X, 7 (B,C,D) and 9 (E,F,G). The luminary is designed to withstand the rigors of demanding environmental and operating conditions while remaining lightweight and easy to use. These units can operate in temperatures of -40° Celsius to 60° Celsius, are waterproof to 3 meter and resist ingress of dust, dirt and humidity. The housings are formed from extruded aluminum and the lenses are unbreakable polycarbonate. The LEDs offer inherent LED resistance to shocks and vibrations.
LED Benefits: Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation and/or transportation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current is applied, providing instant illumination with no warm up or cool down time before re-striking. Because there is no warm up period, this light can be cycled on and off with no reduction in lamp life.
LED lights run at significantly cooler temperatures than traditional metal halide and high pressure sodium lights and contain no harmful gases, vapors, or mercury, making them both safer and more energy efficient. No extra energy is wasted in cooling enclosed work areas due to external heat emissions from bulb type lights, and the operator risks associated with traditional lighting methods, such as accidental burns and exposure to hazardous substances contained in the glass bulbs, are eliminated. In addition, LEDs are also safer for the environment as they are 100% recyclable, which eliminates the need for costly special disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type lamps.
Heat Management: Heat is the single largest factor in premature LED failure and color shifting. These LED units contain advanced drivers which use pulse width modulation to control heat buildup rather than simple voltage regulators which are typically harsh on sensitive electronics and can contribute to early LED failure. These units automatically sense the temperature of each LED and adjust the energy frequency or "duty cycle" accordingly to maintain heat levels within acceptable ranges. This system in essence flashes current at an extremely fast on and off rate to each LED based upon the LED`s core temperature. This flash rate is too fast to detect with the human eye, but provides precise control of the current flowing to each LED and thus the heat it generates. This allows the LEDs to be driven at up to 100% capacity without overheating or visible loss of light output. The LEDs are always driven at the same voltage but the duty cycle, however, is changed to alter how long the LEDs are actually on or off. The end result is more light with less heat and longer LED life with an average 70% lumen maintenance after 50,000 hours.
Applications: Hazardous locations, inspections, detailed tasks, confined spaces, oil and gas, agricultural facilities, grain storage, paint spray booths, woodshops, manufacturing plants, outdoor locations and more.
