Industrial lighting specialists Larson Electronics have announced the release of a 16 foot telescoping light mast with 360° rotating capabilities that is equipped with two Class 1 Division 1 150 watt LED light fixtures. The LM-16-EPL-2X150RT is a fold over light mast that produces 24,000 lumens of light capable of illuminating 1.25 acres of work space.
The LM-16-EPL-2X150RT produced by Larson Electronics features a rotating boom that allows for 360° of rotation, a removable mast head affixed with two 150 watt explosion proof LEDs, and an easy fold over assembly for. This light boom can be extended to a height of 16’ for effective coverage and collapsed to 10’. The mast is elevated from its folding position with a 1,000 pound hand winch that is fitted with 3/16” cable. A second 1,000 pound winch provides the 10 to 16’ elevation of the mast. The 360° rotation is provided by a single T-Handle. By loosening the T-Handle, operators can rotate the mast with ease in either direction and can be locked into place once the desired position is found.
The two explosion proof LED light fixtures on this mast produce 24,000 lumens of light while drawing only 300 watts of power. These explosion proof LED fixtures are Class 1, Division 1 & 2, Groups C & D and Class 2, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups E, F, & G rated for use within the most demanding hazardous locations. The lights are wired to an explosion proof junction box at the base of the tower and 10’ of SOOW cable terminated in an explosion proof 5-15 plug is included. A 36” wide and ¼” thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for the two light fixtures.
These light masts are typically mounted to trailers or other stable surfaces by a 15” by 13”, ¼” thick mounting baseplate which has been predrilled to accept six ¾” anchor bolts. When lowered to 10’, the mast can withstand winds up to 125 miles per hour. The light tower weighs approximately 400 pounds and can easily support and lift 150 pounds of weight.
“The LM-16-EPL-2X150RT is a heavy duty unit designed for use in demanding conditions,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “It is one of our recently added explosion proof light masts that is constructed of heavy duty steel that is powder coated for corrosion resistances and aesthetics.”
