Larson Electronics Releases 25’ Explosion Proof Extension Cord with a 20 Amp Receptacle

Larson offers a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock

The EPEXC-P20A-GFCI-25 explosion proof extension cord from Larson Electronics is designed to extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. This cord is fitted with a single 20 amp explosion proof twist lock receptacle constructed of non-sparking aluminum and finished with an epoxy powder coat. An LED pilot light is attached to the top wiring hub of the receptacle to indicate current flowing through the receptacle. This unit also includes an inline GFCI reset and test switch to ensure proper operation. The 25 foot extension cord is terminated in an explosion proof straight blade plug to ensure safe connection throughout the hazardous work area. This unit is designed to withstand wet and corrosive conditions and incorporates a spring loaded receptacle door to prevent ingress of water and contaminants when the unit is not in use.

This explosion proof extension cord is Class 1 Division 1 Groups C, D and Class 2 Division 1 Groups E, F, and G rated, making it ideal for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors are present. The cord is oil, chemical and abrasion resistant for durability and the receptacle features deep recessed contacts for protection against arcing and a powder coat finish for resistance to corrosion. This cord is perfect for connecting explosion proof lighting, fans and blowers, and extending the range of portable power supplies and substations within the hazardous work area.

“Larson offers a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors that are readily available in stock,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “As a manufacturer, we can also build custom configurations for customers on demand.”
