Larson Electronics, a supplier of explosion-proof lighting equipment, has unveiled an LED blasting-gun light built for abusive operating conditions.

The low-voltage Magnalight BLG-LED-7W Hazardous Location LED Blasting Gun Light "is designed for high power and extreme durability" and provides an alternative to incandescent blasting gun lights, according to Larson.

Features and Characteristics

According to the manufacturer, the entire assembly is IP66 rated waterproof and can withstand exposure to high-pressure water jets without moisture intrusion into the housing, making it suitable for use in wet locations.

A replaceable protective lens assembly prevents lens damage from exposure to blasting media and is designed for easy replacement as the protective lens becomes worn. The lamp assembly mounts to any standard media blasting gun using an aluminum mounting assembly (included) that is designed for easy and secure installation.

The light operates from 24-volt current provided by a waterproof transformer (included), which steps down standard 120-277V AC current to 24 volts DC. Also included is 100 feet of heavy-duty power cable.

The explosion-proof unit features hazardous location compliance and is Class 1, Division 2, Groups A,B,C,D certified, according to Larson.
