Explosion Proof Quadpod Mount - Single 150 Watt Led Light - 100 foot cord




Part # EPL-TP-1x150LED-100    Price:  $2,314.00

    Spec Sheet     Fiche technique         Dimensions

    Manual


Made in the USA

The EPL-TP-1x150LED-100 Quadpod Mounted Explosion Proof LED Light Tower from Larson Electronics produces 13,000 lumens of light capable of illuminating an area 9,500 square feet in size. This adjustable LED light tower is designed for portability and durable operation and ideal for use in demanding conditions.

*PLEASE NOTE: ANY FREE SHIPPING OFFERS DO NOT APPLY TO LIGHT MASTS, LIGHT TOWERS, OR QUADPODS*

The EPL-TP-1x150LED-100 is a quadpod mounted explosion proof LED lighting system and provides 9,500 square feet of work area coverage with 13,000 lumens of light output. This portable LED light tower has a removable LED light head mounted on top of a four leg durable non-sparking aluminum quadpod equipped with wheels for easy positioning of the unit from one area of the workspace to another. The LED light head on this unit produces a wide flood pattern of light that is ideal for illuminating large workspaces and job sites. This light is designed for heavy duty use in demanding conditions including emergency services, mining, construction, marine, and industrial operations where durability and reliability is critical.

This portable LED light is comprised of an adjustable LED light head mounted atop a four leg quadpod fabricated from non-sparking powder coated aluminum. This adjustable and collapsible quadpod can be extended to twelve feet, collapsed to seven feet, and includes solid wheels allow the operator to tilt the unit back and simply roll the entire assembly to a new location when fully deployed. The LED light fixture assembly can be removed by releasing the hand knob and sliding the light and mounting bracket off of the center support while the legs can be collapsed, aiding in deployment, storage and transport. The lamp can be easily adjusted vertically and locked into position.

The explosion proof LED light fixture features multiple LED drivers which helps to increase the operational life of the fixture. With traditional LED lights, in the event an LED array or driver fails, the entire fixture no longer illuminates. This new series of LED lamps contains twelve individual LED boards configured in a series of banks. Each bank contains two LED boards with an individual driver. In the event of a driver failure, only one bank of LEDs will be effected while the other banks will continue to operate. In the event that of an LED failure, the mating LED will continue to operate.

Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation. 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 applied and emitting light. 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 traditional lamps, reducing the chance of accidental burns and increased temperatures due to heat emissions. This solid state design of light emitting diodes provides a more reliable, stable, durable, and energy efficient light source over traditional lighting.

This hazardous location LED light tower is equipped with 100' of 16/3 SOOW oil, chemical, abrasive, and water resistant cable terminated in an explosion proof cord cap, which is combined with adjustability offered by the LED light head provides ample length for tower placement and optimal coverage of the workspace. Cord cap options include 15 amp NEMA 5-15 straight blade plug for designed for 125V, 20 amp NEMA 5-20 plug design for 125V, and 20 amp 6-20 plug designed for 250V. All three cord caps are designed to lock into compatible twist lock receptacles by twisting the plug body until an audible click is heard, which indicates the plug is securely connected. Once locked into place this plug will not accidentally pull out. Other cord caps, such as pin and sleeve style, can be custom fit upon request.

The LED light head on this tower contains twelve 12.5 watt LEDs producing 1084 lumens each. These LEDs are arranged in rows and paired with high purity optics to produce 12,500 lumens and a 60 degree flood beam while only drawing 1.25 amps on 120V, making these units ideal for use as highly efficient yet powerful work and area lights. The EPL-TP-1x150LED-100 hazardous location LED light is an ideal and direct replacement for fragile and hot running 400 watt metal halide floodlights.


This light is universal voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277 VAC, 50/60Hz. We also offer a low voltage version of this LED fixture that operates on AC/DC voltages from 11-25 Volts and in-line step-down transformers for high voltage to low voltage operations. This explosion proof LED light fixture is IP67 rated, dust-proof, and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The cast aluminum body and LED lamp give this light excellent durability and resistance to vibration and impacts. The housing is specially designed to dissipate heat which increases the efficiency and lifespan of the LEDs and electronics. This LED light produces 13,000 lumens with a color temperature of 5600K and a color rendering index of 75 which produces colors and details much more accurately than high pressure sodium or mercury vapor portable work lights. This LED light tower retains 80% of its lumen output after 60,000 hours of use, far longer than metal halide or halogen work lamps.

The LED light head on this unit is small enough to allow it to fit through most standard size manholes and entry points. The LED light head can also be removed from the quadpod, the tower collapsed and the entire assembly passed through a manhole and reassembled once inside. The easy to collapse design of this Class 1 Division 1 LED work light allows Larson Electronics to avoid pallet freight charges when shipping and deliver these units via UPS next day air service, which in turn improves delivery time and reduces the cost to buyers.

11/25/13 High Bay/Low Bay Metal Halide Lighting

according to the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA), high bay refers to higher ceilings, typically 25 feet and higher in height. Low bay on the other hand usually refers to ceilings with heights below 25 feet.
