KEMP, Texas, April 5, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting and equipment sectors, announced the release of an explosion-proof plug rated at 20 amps, which is compatible with Larson Electronics’ EPO-20A explosion-proof, 20-amp outlet when coupled with the EPP-20A series plug. This unit can only be used in T-style outlets and must be mated to an explosion-proof outlet.

This 20-amp rated plug is made of non-sparking aluminum, with a longer housing for easy handling and brass pins for secure full-length pin contact.
