Larson Electronics

Larson Electronics’ EPEXC-8X-12.4-25 heavy-duty extension cord equipped with eight twist-lock receptacles is designed to provide a secure connection for explosion-proof equipment in hazardous locations.

The extension cord can extend the reach of equipment in hazardous locations where power receptacles are not in close proximity to the work space. The cord is 25 feet long and is fitted with eight explosion-proof twist-lock receptacles, constructed of non-sparking aluminum and is terminated with a 20-amp plug for safe and secure connection to a power receptacle.

The cord, plug and receptacles support a three-pole, two-wire design which works with most common explosion-proof equipment, according to Larson Electronics. It is Class 1 Division 1 Groups C, D and Class 2 Division 1 Groups E, F, and G rated, designed for use in hazardous locations where flammable gases and vapors are present.

The extension cord is oil, chemical and abrasion resistant for durability and the receptacles feature deep-recessed contacts for protection against arcing and a powder coat finish for resistance against corrosion. It is suited for connecting explosion-proof lights, fans and blowers and extending the range of portable power supplies and substations within a hazardous work area.
