Why You Should Never Remove a Data Tag on an Explosion-Proof Light

Explosion-proof lighting comes in many forms, from hand lamps and stringlights, to area lights, both LED and incandescent. But they all share something in common, and you’ve likely noticed it yourself: they all feature a data tag on the lamp. This data tag explains the hazardous location zones for which the light is rated. WorkSite Lighting repairs and services all the units that we manufacture, and can even repair explosion-proof lights that originate elsewhere. So, we see a lot of lights when they are returned from the field, and sometimes, they are missing their original data tags. This is a very bad thing. Here’s why.


Data tags tell you where it’s safe to use the light

If you look at the data tag, you will see the Class, Division, and Group rating marked, as in this photo of a Daniel Woodhead explosion-proof LED hand lamp data tag. This prevents workers from assuming where a light can and cannot be used, and it’s a great idea to train your workers to recognize this, if you haven’t already. Not all explosion-proof lights are the same. Some are rated for the presence of harmful vapors, for instance, while others are rated for the presence of harmful particles. Never assume that a light that is good for one hazardous location is good for another. The data tag sorts it out, and also provides a teaching moment for your supervisors to educate your workers about Classes, Divisions, and Groups. And remember… if you need a little help learning your hazardous locations, WorkSite Lighting is always ready to answer your questions, or drop by to learn more about your needs.

Data tags let us know if a light is certified

WorkSite Lighting repairs lights in all sorts of conditions. You might be surprised at what we can do to return a light to service. But there’s one thing we cannot do. We cannot return a light to the field if its data tags are gone. Without data tags, there’s no way for us to know if the light was ever certified in the first place, and WorkSite Lighting is committed to safety. There is no way we will ever put your workers at risk. A light without data tags is a light that’s reached the end of its service. For rental companies, this is especially important to watch out for. No one wants to see an explosion-proof light go into early retirement, when it would otherwise have plenty more years on the job!


Data tags stop the mixing of parts in the field

The different lamp manufacturers have slightly different data tags. In other words, when an explosion-proof light returns to WorkSite Lighting, we can tell if parts have been swapped on the unit. Doing so threatens the explosion-proof rating of the light. Again, we won’t send a light back into the field if it is not up to the highest standards of safety.

Though it may seem like a small thing, it’s important to show your workers how important these data tags are. We know things get rough out there, and that’s why we make these lights as tough as we do. Data tags get knocked off, damaged, and disappear through wear and tear. But they also disappear for other reasons unrelated to the task at hand. If everyone knows that the light can’t be used without the tag, then you have a safer workplace.

As always, WorkSite Lighting is standing by to take your questions and concerns about this topic, and any other matter related to explosion-proof lighting and safety. Feel free to contact us anytime at (877) 861-5255 or support@worksitelighting.com.

The XPLED 150 is Better than Ever – Now Only 112 watts

You can find WorkSite Lighting’s XPLED 150 area light all over the world. It’s been one of the most reliable and best-performing explosion-proof LED area lights on the market for many years. But we’ve made recent improvements to the unit that make it better than ever. For starters, the lamp is now only 112 watts. That’s a reduction in energy consumption of 25%. But thanks to new LED breakthroughs, we’ve boosted the light output to 12,250 lumens – an increase of 25% more light from the XPLED 150.

For a Class I Division 1 explosion-proof light, you can’t beat combination of performance and safety that’s found in the XPLED 150. The new improvements to the unit make a great light even better. We aren’t even changing the name of the light, despite the change in wattage. We discovered that in the new era of LED explosion-proof lighting, wattage is no longer the most prominent feature of a light, and it is not predictive of the amount of light that a lamp can produce with its LED source. Because so many people are familiar with the XPLED 150, we decided to keep the name of the best LED area light in the world. The improvements to the design make the XPLED 150 now truly extraordinary.

So what is the PXPLED 150?

Every once in a while, you may hear a reference to the PXPLED 150. That’s the same light as the XPLED 150, and it also has been improved to 112w, 12,250 lumens specifications. The only difference is that the PXPLED 150 is rated for paint spray booths, which kicks its safety rating up a notch. If you need the paint-spray version, just ask for the PXPLED 150.

As always, WorkSite Lighting’s experts are standing by to answer any questions you might have about the XPLED 150 and our entire array of explosion-proof LED lights and portable power distribution units. Give us a call anytime – 877-861-5255, and we will be happy to help you make your workplace safer.

Honoring our Veterans: WorkSite Lighting Sponsors Combat Marine Outdoors Golf Tournament

As a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, WorkSite Lighting has a special connection to our country’s armed forces and those who have served the people of the United States as a member of our military. When we were asked to be a part of the 2014 Brand Combat Marine Outdoors Golf Tournament at Pelican Point Country Club this August, we jumped at the chance to be a hole sponsor at this great event.

Combat Marine Outdoors (CMO) is an organization committed to helping wounded and injured servicemen and servicewomen return to civilian life after their time in the military is over. Specifically, CMO takes these soldiers out of hospitals and rehabilitation centers and puts them in the outdoors again, taking them on hunting and fishing trips, hikes, camping trips and even sporting events.

The morale of these soldiers is greatly improved by these special adventures and environments that only the outdoors can provide. In addition, these veterans once again experience the joy of friendly companionship and they are told and shown how thankful we all are as a nation for their sacrifice.

Being a successful business is about more than just making money and continuously improving our internal process. A successful business gives its employees and its community an understanding of the qualities it stands for. At WorkSite Lighting, we value hard work and quality of work, but we also take great pride in being an American company that embraces the values that make our country great. WorkSite Lighting actively seeks out veterans for employment opportunities and we support initiatives that better the lives of veterans. We couldn’t be prouder to sponsor this fine organization, and we hope that you will consider Combat Marine Outdoors when you give charitably in the future.

WorkSite Lighting Welcomes Wobblelight to its Family of Products

At Worksite Lighting we are always on the lookout for innovative products that take a different approach to lighting a work area. The Wobblelight definitely fits that description, and it is one of the most unique products we’ve ever offered.

The Wobblelight features a wide rounded base that will not tip over, so it has the unusual ability to right itself. This makes it particularly useful as a general area work light on construction sites, demolition sites or any area that’s rugged or features heavy foot traffic. The Wobblelight casts a 360-degree light pattern capable of lighting up a 110’ radius all by itself. What’s more, the Wobblelight can also be daisy chained with other Wobblelight units to light up wide territories of turf for your worksite.

And even though it’s a tough customer, it’s not a heavyweight by any means. The 36” version we sell is less than 30 lbs. total. The Wobblelight’s frame is hard ABS plastic that stays cool when the light is in use. A Lexan dome and a floating bulb shock system protect the bulb and keep you working in case the Wobblelight takes a hit.

If you operate a worksite that has difficult terrain or lots of moving parts, the Wobblelight might be a good option as an area light. It’s another example of how WorkSite Lighting looks to bring new and different lighting options to worksites around the globe.

WorkSite Lighting LLC Releases New Explosion Proof 70W LED

The XP 70W LED Light is vibration resistant for longer life in portable applications, carries a 1 year warranty for industrial use and is rated for Class I Division I areas with explosion proof requirements in Groups B, C, & D also covering Class II Division I Groups E, F, & G. The 70W LED is extremely versatile for portable use and offers numerous mounting options to fit the specific needs of each unique jobsite or application.

The 70W LED offers 5,800 Lumens of true white light and is a proven energy saver. When using fuel on a jobsite the cost can grow enormously, using LED lighting can assist in cutting down on some of those costs.

Working spaces can be tight, with LED lighting there is little to no heat, reducing the risk of burns, and can be shut off and turned directly back on, no cooling time required. LEDs assist in the ability to quickly dismantle a jobsite preparing for the next project. Lighting is generally the last tool to be loaded however, needs a longer time to cool before it can be transported.

“We are excited to add to our line of industrial lighting solutions with the release of our new 70W LED,” said Alex Robeau, V.P. of Product Development. “As with every piece of equipment we offer, our team can provide proper instruction of use and tips on increasing job site safety and choosing the proper mounting option for your particular application.”
