Larson Electronics’ has introduced three new lighting options for hazardous work areas and one designed for extreme environments.

Wheeled Hazardous Area Light Cart

The new Magnalight wheeled light cart is designed to provide powerful lighting for hazardous locations on a mobile and easily deployed platform. Equipped with two 400-watt metal halide lamps, the HAL-2X400C wheeled light cart illuminates up to 50,000 square feet of workspace and is approved for Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations.

Constructed of aluminum and stainless steel, with an SOOW explosion-proof cord and solid rubber tires, the unit is designed to provide durable, reliable and safe illumination that can be easily moved by one person around the workplace. It is specially designed to accommodate workspaces with low ceiling heights.

This unit is suitable for use in outdoor marine applications, industrial applications, shipyards, commercial manufacturing and outdoor work areas.

Metal Halide Dual Pedestal Lamp

Larson has also introduced a dual metal halide pedestal lamp that is designed to provide high-power illumination in an easily deployed package.

Larson says the unit is easy to carry and set up, rated for wet areas, and approved for Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations. It produces 72,000 lumens and can illuminate 50,000 square feet of workspace with brilliant white light.

This lamp provides protection in atmospheres where flammable gases and vapors may occasionally be present.

The unit produces enough light to illuminate 25,000 square feet of workspace and includes 100 feet of cord and a pedestal base with built-in carrying handle, and a 400-watt lamp.

Extreme Environment LED Light Bar

Larson’s new, highly adjustable, extreme environment LED light bar is equipped with a double ball joint and 200-pound-grip magnetic mounting system.

The 36-watt light bar produces more than 2,000 lumens of light, can be mounted on any ferrous metallic surface, and includes an inline transformer to allow connection to common 110-120VAC power sources.

The light is IP68 rated waterproof to three meters, has extruded aluminum housing, and includes an impact- and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lens.

Able to withstand high-vibration equipment, the unit is designed for what Larson calls “abusive work,” marine boat light applications and industrial applications.
