Larson Electronics Releases a New 3000 Watt Extendable Light Mast
Press release date: January 30, 2014
Serving the utilities, industrial and commercial business communities for over 40 years, leading manufacturer and distributor of high grade light equipment Larson Electronics has released a new 3000 watt extendable light mast. This mast is equipped with two 1,500 watt metal halide lamps that produce 300,000 lumens of light combined.
The LM-16-FM-2X1500W-EW Light Tower from Larson Electronics is a 16 foot extendable light tower equipped with an electric winch and two metal halide light fixtures that produce approximately 150,000 lumens each. The two 1,500 watt metal halide lamps produce a wide spread of intense white light, allowing this unit to effectively cover large work areas with high quality illumination. These lamps have 19” reflectors and are constructed of aluminum with a clear tempered glass lens which is secured into place with a heavy duty gasket and single ring lock. These floodlights produce a wide flood light pattern capable of illuminating approximately 3.5 acres. Each floodlight is securely fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help maintain lamp stability within it housing.
This two section light boom can be extended to 16 feet for maximum area coverage and collapsed to 9 feet. The tower is constructed of square steel tubing. The mast is extended to its full height using an included 1,000 pound rated 120 volt Dutton Lainson electric winch with 3/16 inch aircraft cable. The electric winches are controlled by a programmable logic relay and reflective sensors as opposed to physical limit switches for ease of use and safety.
These light masts are typically mounted to trailers or other stable surfaces via a 15 inch by 13 inch, ½ inch thick mounting base plate which has been drilled to accept six ¾ inch anchor bolts. A 24 inch wide and ¼ inch thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for the metal halide fixtures. This light tower can withstand winds up to 125 mph when lowered to 9.6 feet.
“For operators looking to build their own portable light tower configurations, we offer lights and masts as separate custom configurations,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “These light masts are the perfect solution for construction sites, event lighting, highway projects, emergency services and industrial plants.”
