Larson Electronics Releases Explosion Proof GFCI Cord Whip, 15 Amps, 125V Rated, 14/3 SOOW Cord
KEMP, Texas, August 16, 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 GFCI cord whip for use in flammable and hazardous worksites to extend power connections. This unit is compatible with 125V and comes with a 15-amp continuous service rating. This 14/3 SOOW cord comes with a blunt end cut and is chemical and abrasion resistant.
The EPEXC-1C-GFI-50C-BCE explosion proof GFCI cord whip is rated for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D; and Class II, Division 1, Groups E, F, and G hazardous locations. This unit features a 3-pole, 2-wire configuration and comes with in-line 20-amp GFCI protection. The plug on this explosion proof cord is of a twist lock design and in order for a secure and working connection to happen, the operator must insert the plug and twist until it locks into place.
Larson Electronics’ explosion proof GFCI cord whip uses a T-style plug and will work with non-explosion proof standard receptacles and plugs (NEMA 5-15R, 5-20R, or 6-20R), but not with standard 120V wall outlets. The plug on this cord is cross-interchangeable with Crouse Hind™ part number ENP5201 plugs and receptacles, and Hubble-Killiark part number UGP-20231 ACCEPTOR® plugs and receptacles. Suitable applications include manufacturing, industrial locations, warehouses, explosion proof fixtures, wet areas, and more.
