Larson Electronics announced the release of a solar powered explosion proof LED indicator light for remote areas and standalone applications where power is impractical or unavailable. This 7W unit offers 360˚ of illumination and is ATEX rated for Zone 1 and 21 with a Class I, Division 2 solar panel. The ATEX-EPSLED-80-STB-SOL-20C-C1D2-24V explosion proof solar powered LED indicator light operates on 24VDC, a Class I, Division 2 rated solar panel, and eight 24VAC 18aH sealed lead acid batteries. When exposed to direct sunlight, the battery bank charges in five hours. The batteries are housed in a NEMA 4X remote enclosure and charged by the solar panel with a 20ft 12/2 SOOW cord connecting the light fixture to the solar panel. Made of aluminum with a temperature-resistant pressed glass lens, this 7W lamp is rated for flammable environments and work sites where combustible gas, vapor, or mist may be present. This saltwater-resistant unit’s control box features either a day/night sensor and motion sensor, or an on/off switch.
