Xenide: 20W HID Explosion proof light Class 1 & 2 Division 1 & 2™

** Out of stock **Hid Explosion Proof Light

Commonly referred to as 20W Hid Explosion Proof Light, Intrinsically Safe, & Hazardous Location portable lights, the Xenide AEX20-EP has been tested to the performance test procedures contained in the UL 783, for use in Hazardous (Classified) locations” Class 1, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, & D and Class 1, Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D; Class II, Division 1, Groups F & G; and Class II, Division 2, Groups F & G, as defined in the National Electric Code, NFPA 70, to cover lights intended for use in Hazardous locations.

Based on the results of the tests it has been concluded that the AEX20-EP meets the intent of the standard for satisfactory operation in an explosive environment and would not cause ignition of an explosive atmosphere during normal operation.

Applications include Petro/chemical facilities, holding tanks, natural gas companies, aircraft repair & maintenance facilities, food processing plants, and numerous industrial plants. Maintenance facilities us the AEX20-EP to illuminate and fluoresces substances with the use of the UV lamp and UV filters, CSI use them for crime scenes due to its high illumination and penetrating effect of the UV rays.

Further independent laboratory testing for the Xenide power supply was conducted for Section 38.3, Lithium Batteries UN SG/AC.10/11 Rev. 4 Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Manual for tests and Criteria Fourth revised edition.

Summary of Class I, II, III Hazardous Locations



Division 1

Division 2


Gases, vapors and liquids

A: Acetylene

B: Hydrogen, etc.

C: Ether, etc.

D: Hydrocarbons, fuels, solvents, etc.

Normally explosive and hazardous Not normally present in an explosive concentration (but may accidentally exist)


E: Metal dusts (conductive and all explosive)

F: Carbon dusts (some are conductive, and all are explosive)

G: Flour, starch, grain, combustible plastic or chemical dust (explosive)

Ignitable quantities of dust normally are or may be in suspension or conductive dust may be present Dust not normally suspended in an ignitable concentration (but may accidentally exist). Dust layers are present.
1 & II Fibers and flyings Textiles, wood-working, etc. (easily ignitable, but not likely to be explosive) Handled or used in manufacturing Stored or handled in storage (exclusive of manufacturing)

The specific hazardous materials within each group and their automatic ignition temperatures can be found in Article 500 of the National Electrical Code and in NFPA 497.

Group A, B, C, and D apply to Class 1 locations. Groups E, F, and G apply to Class II locations.

Hazardous Location Lights: This category features HID & LED Drop Lights, Hand Lights, Portable Explosion Proof Lights, and other intrinsically safe lighting products. These lights are used in areas where petrochemical or dust particles have the potential to exist and the possibility of ignition is possible. Explosion proof lighting is rated Class 1, Division 1/2 or Class 2, Division 1/2 as specified by UL standards. These areas include offshore lights, rig lights, spray booths, cleaning vessels, fuel cells, plant turn around, marine work areas, grain storage, dust, or munitions.

The Xenide AEX20-EP HID searchlight is rated for Class 1, Division 1&2 applications. and is a powerful hid spotlight that can be used in a variety of industrial applications such as inspection lighting, industrial UV inspection light, and leak detection.
