Larson Electronics Releases a Trailer Hitch Mounted HID Work Light with Various Power Options
Press release date: March 11, 2014
The HIDTH-66X2-70W work area light tower from Larson Electronics is multi-voltage capable and can be used with either 12 or 24 volts DC and is ideal for use as work area illumination, event lighting, emergency operations lighting, equipment lighting, and is suitable for use on any vehicle that accepts a hitch mount. This light tower provides operators with a very versatile lighting solution for operations where easily managed illumination of a large area is required. The two IP67 rated 70 watt HID floodlights create a total of 12,600 lumens of bright white light and provide light coverage for an area 500’ long by 500’ wide. This unit is also available in a spotlight version that produces a beam 4200’ long by 180’ wide. The HID lights have a 70 watt HID bulb that produces 6,300 lumens each that is paired with high purity 35° optics to produce a wide area flood beam with exceptional spread. The optional spotlight versions have 10° optics and produce a much longer and tighter spotlight beam.
The tower is extendable from 3 feet to 8 feet and incorporates a trailer hitch mounting system that allows operators to easily secure the fixture to vehicles at any location. The mounting system provides extremely secure placement of the tower in areas where high winds are commonly encountered as the weight of the vehicle removes the possibility of the unit swaying excessively or tipping over. There is several different power options provided for this light tower to accommodate any vehicle with a receiver hitch, including a round 4-pin, 6-pin, and 7-pin, a flat 4-pin, battery clamp connectors, ring terminal connectors, and a cigarette socket plug in.
“Operators in the field generally have vehicles with trailer hitches available, so Larson Electronics offers low cost telescoping light towers that take advantage of the trailer hitch and power supply available on most trucks and SUVs,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com said. “The telescoping light assembly collapses to a small, lightweight form factor for storage and portability, but once affixed to the trailer hitch, the vehicle makes an ideal weighted base for high wind scenarios.”
