Larson Electronics LLC has introduced an explosion-proof surface-mount infrared LED light designed to provide illumination in the 1145-nm range normally applied in spectroscopic testing and analysis applications. The EPL-SMLED-20W-1445 is designed for Class 1 Division 1 locations and produces infrared light without lenses or filters. Cool running and portable, it is suitable for use in wet or corrosive environments and can be operated in the range of 9 to 48 VDC. Designed for analysis processes such as infrared spectroscopy, the 1445-nm light is invisible to the naked eye and suitable for specialized applications where testing and observation of molecular structures and chemical composition are performed. A flat base with preformed mounting slots provides secure, permanent mounting to flat surfaces.
