Larson Electronics has announced the release of an explosion proof extension cord plug rated at 20 amps. Paired with Larson Electronics’ EPP-20A series plug, this unit is compatible with our EPO-20A explosion proof 20-amp outlet. This unit can only be used in T-style outlets and in order to retain explosion proof safety it must be mated with an explosion proof outlet.

The EPP-20A-2FT-1P explosion proof extension cord plug is designed to lock into compatible receptacles by twisting the plug body until a click is heard, which prevents the plug from accidentally being pulled out. This plug is rated for use in Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups B, C, and D; Class II, Divisions 1 and 2, Group G; and Class III hazardous locations. This unit is made of non-sparking aluminum with brass pins for secure full-length pin contact and a 15-amp current rating.

Larson Electronics’ explosion proof extension cord plug is approved for hot work permit applications and allows operators to use their non-explosion proof equipment within an explosion proof environment. This plug can fit a non-explosion proof standard receptacle (NEMA 5-15R, 5-20R, or 6-20R) and is suitable for use in manufacturing, industrial settings, warehouses, lighting, compressors, wet areas, commercial settings, and more.
