Larson Electronics has released the new EPEXC-8X-12.3-25 explosion proof extension cord designed to extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not close to the work space.
The cord is 7.6m long, fitted with eight non-sparking, aluminium, explosion proof twist lock receptacles, and is terminated with a 20-A explosion proof plug. The cord, plug, and receptacles support a three pole, two wire design, suitable for most explosion proof equipment.
The cord is Class 1 Division 1 Groups C, D, and Class 2 Division 1 Groups E, F, and G rated, suitable for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapours are present.
It is oil, chemical, and abrasion resistant for durability with the receptacles featuring deep recessed contacts for protection against arcing and a powder coat finish for resistance against corrosion.
This cord is suitable for connecting explosion proof lights, fans, and blowers, and extending the range of portable power supplies and substations within hazardous work areas.
