What is LED Explosion Proof Lighting?

LED Explosion Proof Lighting Class 1 Division 1 fixtures and LED Hazardous Location Lighting Class I, Division 2 fixtures for use in outdoor or indoor applications. Explosion proof defined: a term frequently encountered when looking for industrial lighting fixtures for hazardous areas. This term is usually seen when describing Class I Division 1 equipment or EX equipment.There are basically two requirements for components to be considered explosion proof for Class I Division 1 atmospheres. First, the industrial lighting fixture must be able to withstand an internal explosion if it should occur and secondly, it must work to prevent the spread of the internal explosion to the surrounding saturated atmosphere. This is typically accomplished by joints and closures built into the actual lighting fixture. The lighting fixtures themselves may be damaged, but they are designed so as not to allow the explosion or other possible sources of ignition to reach the hazardous atmosphere. See LED explosion proof flood lighting.
