LumaStar Explosion-Proof LED Illuminator Model EPL-100

Explosion-Proof (LED Light Source; CSA Approved, FM Approved for Class 1 & 2, Division 1, Groups B, C & D) NEMA 4X, & 7 120 / 230 VAC

LumaStar EPL-100The LumaStar Model EPL-100 is a Flat Glass LED Illuminator backlighting unit for transparent level gages & sight windows that provides brilliant illumination of the process level and a maintenance-free bulb life of over 10 years. The impact on plant safety and reliability is immediate. Economically, the LumaStar Model EPL-100 Illuminator pays for itself in less than two years through maintenance and electricity savings.

The new Jerguson® LumaStar Model EPL-100 also surpasses the length limitations of current "wedge or fiberoptic" type illuminators that cover a maximum of two sections or three sections respectively. The introduction of the LumaStar Model EPL-100 enables coverage of up to four gage sections and allows the use of a single illuminator and power supply for the majority of level gage applications, saving both time and money on instillation.

Jerguson's LumaStar EPL-100 is approved for use in Class 1, Div 1, Groups B, C & D environments. The light strip housing (by itself) is NEMA 4X rated & CSA Approved. This light is available in any size up to 55" long with a single power supply. This translates to a 4 section, size 9 gage from one power supply at less than 750 mA. Most competitors only offer lights/illuminators that rely on incandescent bulbs. Incandescent lights, while fairly bright tend to have a light source concentrated toward the bottom of the gage (at the bulb location). The LumaStar Model EPL-100's linear array of white LED's lighting spreads evenly across the gage's visible area (spaced at 1/2" intervals) providing a light source bright enough to cut through even the darkest crude oil. The EPL-100's "life" is nominally rated for 100,000 hours compared to the average 3-month life of incandescent bulbs.

Easy to install on existing Jerguson or competitor's level gages. Installation is as simple as snapping the LumaStar Model EPL-100 assembly onto the flat glass gage and connecting the power.
