New Cooper Crouse-Hinds Hazard•Gard® LED Luminaires
Bring Energy, Cost Savings to Demanding Environments
High-performance LED Solutions for Explosionproof Environments
SYRACUSE, NY, April 24, 2013 – When the most demanding environments require even smarter
solutions, users can feel confident choosing the latest technology from Cooper Crouse-Hinds, including
the Hazard•Gard® EVLL Explosionproof light-emitting diode (LED) luminaires. Designed to provide safe,
energy efficient illumination, EVLL LED luminaires are built to stand up to even the harshest
environments while providing optimum illumination and reliability.
“As a company, we’re taking our commitment to quality products for harsh environments to the next
level by offering our customers a complete line of efficient, explosion-proof LED solutions,” said Andrew
Agan, global product line manager, lighting, Crouse-Hinds division. “These solutions will not only stand
up to the harshest environments, but will also provide bright, energy efficient illumination.”
Designed to provide a full lighting spectrum, the new Hazard•Gard® EVLL Explosionproof LED
luminaires offer the same durability and reliability of traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) fixtures,
but also include a host of additional benefits. Included in those benefits is a T6 temperature rating up to
55°C, an energy savings of up to 62 percent compared to equivalent HID fixtures and a reduction in
overall maintenance, as each fixture offers a rated life of up to 60,000 hours to effectively eliminate the
need to frequently replace lamps.
The Hazard•Gard® EVLL LED luminary fixture’s body and mounting module is manufactured from
copper-free aluminum with a Corro-free™ epoxy powder and features a shatter-resistant, explosionproof
glass lens. For added durability, fixtures also include a silicone gasket and a stainless steel guard and
exterior hardware.
Hazard•Gard® EVLL LED luminaires are ideal for locations requiring continuous and consistent light
levels in extreme ambient temperatures. Locations may include areas that require frequent on-and-off of

lights; where flammable vapors, gases, ignitable dusts, fibers or flyings are present; and where
extremely corrosive, wet, dusty, hot and/or cold conditions exist. All fixtures are NEMA 4X, IP66, and
Marine and wet location listed, and include several NEC, CEC, UL and CSA certifications.
Hazard•Gard® EVLL LED luminaires fixtures are available in five lumen outputs, in a cool or warm LED
color, and come in a variety of mounting options.
