KEMP, Texas, Aug. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics LLC, a leader of industrial lighting, has released an explosion proof direct on line magnetic starter that powers and preserves industrial equipment at a reduced voltage. This 200hp unit is compatible with 480V three-phase 50/60 Hz and features a start/stop push button and a CPT with primary fuses. 

The Larson Electronics EXP-MTSTR-DOL-3P-480V-200HP-250A Explosion Proof Direct on Line Magnetic Starter provides reduced voltage starting solutions for industrial equipment located in combustible environments.

The EXP-MTSTR-DOL-3P-480V-200HP-250A is an explosion proof direct on line magnetic starter, which is compatible with 480V three-phase 50/60 Hz.
