Larson Electronics LLC has released an explosion-proof LED light fixture for paint booths that provides operators in hazardous environments powerful, energy efficient illumination and features Modbus TCP/IP network controller and Aevum Network Control Lighting Solution. This four-foot two-lamp fixture is rated for Class I Division 1 & 2 and Class II Division 1 & 2 areas, and holds paint spray booth, ATEX and IECEx certifications, making it ideal for paint booths, oil rigs, offshore applications, petrochemical, manufacturing, chemical storage and more.

The EPL-ANC-48-2L-LED explosion-proof LED fixture provides 7,000 lumens of high-quality light, drawing just 56 watts. 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 T6 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 LED produces a 150º beam spread and has a standard 5600K cool white color temperature to produce colors and details more accurately than traditional luminaries.

The EPL-ANC-48-2L-LED allows operators to set up remote access, controls and configurations with the inclusion of Modbus TCP/IP network controller via a standard web browser. The network controller is equipped with one optically isolate digital input and one SPDT relay contact. The unit is compatible with 9-28V DC and has a three-position removable relay, a five-position removable power/inputs and an eight-pin RJ-45 port for network connections.

Aevum Network Controlled Lighting Solution enables connected and intelligent illumination using cutting-edge and existing networks using Modbus TCP/IP or DALI, allowing operators to control lights and sensors remotely. The status of fixtures can also be monitored remotely with this platform, reducing maintenance and downtimes.

This lightweight, low-profile, explosion-proof LED is compact and built with extruded aluminum. The fixture is marine approved and NEMA 4X and IP67 rated, making it dust-proof and protected against high-pressure jets and temporary submersion, as well as resistant to vibration and impacts.

The EPL-ANC-48-2L-LED is offered with suspension pendant mounting or surface mounting options. This light is universal voltage and can operate on any voltage from 120V to 277V AC 50/60Hz without modifications. There is no ballast in this unit and the included LED lamps have a 50,000+ hour service life, both of which result in extreme efficiency and greatly reduced maintenance costs.
