Larson Electronics has introduced the high-powered Magnalight BL40-LED Blasting Light, designed to withstand the demanding conditions found in sand, water and media blasting operations.
The IP68-rated, 120-watt LED blasting light produces 7,200 lumens of intense light, is waterproof to three meters, resists corrosion and dust, is available in spot or flood configurations, and can be operated with voltages ranging from 9 to 46 volts.

An optional inline transformer allows operation with a standard 120V-277V AC current; a magnetic mounting system allows users to attach the unit to any metallic surface containing steel or iron.
Built to withstand operations in extreme conditions, the BL40-LED Blasting Light offers a powerful LED light beam capable of cutting through the dusty and murky conditions often encountered in blasting rooms, the manufacturer says.
Constructed of extruded aluminum with a polycarbonate lens and stainless steel hardware, the unit can withstand exposure to sand, water, dust and high vibratory conditions without failure or loss of light output, Larson says. Three 100-pound magnetic mounts allow users to mount the light to walls, ceilings, equipment and any other surface that will accept a magnet.
An adjustable trunnion connects the light fixture to the mounting magnets and provides nearly 360 degrees of vertical movement.
Lens Protection, Beam Configurations
Also available: protective adhesive Mylar lens covers that can be easily peeled off and replaced to protect the lens faceplate and catch overspray in coating applications and reduce lens exposure to abrasives during blasting procedures.
The light is offered in a 1200-foot-long spot beam or 375-by-260-foot flood beam configuration. The unit includes 50 feet of SOOW cord.
The Edixeon 3 Watt LED Emitters in this unit are rated at 50,000 hours, allowing several years of operation without a lamp replacement. The waterproof, dustproof housing allows operators to wash down the unit, even with high-pressure water jets, without damaging the interior electronics.
“This UL-listed LED blasting light is ideal for all types of wet and dry type blasting environments,” said Rob Bresnahan, of Larson Electronics’ mangnalight.com.
“We can provide removable covers specifically made for this LED blasting light that help operators clear overspray. Most importantly, this LED blasting light can be used with 120-277VAC or 12/24VDC power, which makes it extremely versatile and applicable to wet area use.”
