Longtime leading supplier of explosion proof lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of a heavy duty extension cord equipped with three twist lock receptacles designed to provide secure connection of explosion proof equipment in hazardous locations.
The EPEXC-150-3X20A-12-3 explosion proof extension cord from Larson Electronics is designed to extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. This explosion proof cord is 150 feet in length, providing ample length for moving about the work space. This cord is fitted with three explosion proof twist lock receptacles constructed of non-sparking aluminum on one end for connection of equipment and a 20 amp explosion proof plug on the other end for safe and secure connection to power receptacles. This cord, and its plug and receptacles are a 3 pole 2 wire design which works with most common explosion proof equipment. The three 20 amp power receptacles are constructed of non-sparking aluminum and finished with an epoxy powder coating while the housing is constructed of triple coated malleable iron for durability and added corrosion resistance. The internal receptacle plug contacts are constructed of brass and designed to maintain constant pressure along their entire length for superior connectivity. The cord is oil, chemical and abrasion resistant for durability and the receptacles feature deep recessed contacts for protection against arcing and a powder coat finish for resistance to corrosion. This explosion proof extension cord is Class 1 Division 1 Groups C, D and Class 2 Division 1 Groups E, F, and G rated, making it ideal for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors are present. This cord is perfect for connecting explosion proof lighting, fans and blowers, and extending the range of portable power supplies and substations within the hazardous work area.
“We offer a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com said. “As a manufacturer, we can also build custom configurations for customers on demand.”
