Appleton Explosionproof Handlamp Provides Safe, Bright Portable LED Lighting in Hazardous Locations

NEC/CEC Certified for Explosive Environments
ROSEMONT, Ill. (JUNE 30, 2020) -- Engineered to provide customers with portable task-specific lighting in hazardous industrial locations, the new Appleton EHLED handlamp by Emerson is compact and lightweight so it can be carried and used virtually anywhere, including tight, restricted spaces. A factory sealed, explosionproof Class I, Division 1 approved design qualifies it for oil refineries, tank inspections, fuel storage centers and other classified areas where ordinary handlamps are not permitted.

Built tough to withstand corrosive elements, the Appleton EHLED features an impact- and heat-resistant glass globe, plus is completely watertight to assure a long service life. When hands-free operation is required, its non-sparking swivel hook can be attached to a pipe up to 3/4 inch in diameter.

The Appleton EHLED is lighter, stronger, and more efficient than incandescent handlamps, with a 9W LED bulb, rated for enclosed spaces, that provides 800 lumens of light output or the equivalent of a 60W incandescent lamp. The LED emanates soft, glare-free lighting that is exceptionally energy-efficient. LED runs at significantly cooler temperatures than metal halide or HID lamps and contains no harmful gases, vapors, or mercury, making it safer for the worksite.
