Larson Electronics' Magnalight Announces Addition of Mega Light Tower for Mobile Large Scale Illumination
Larson Electronics announced today the addition of a high power mega light tower to its extensive line of mobile lighting equipment. Designed to provide illumination for large scale projects and events, this mobile light tower produces over 2 million lumens and can effectively illuminate an area 10 acres in size. Incorporating quality components and constructed of heavy duty materials, the WCDE-49-16X1500 Mega Light Tower 24000 is ideal for construction and mining projects, event illumination, and outdoor industrial applications.
The WCDE-49-16X1500 Mega Light Tower 24000 is a trailer mounted lighting package that combines a self contained diesel engine and generator, extendable light tower, and mobile trailer platform to produce a unit capable of extreme illumination of large scale areas. This mobile tower produces 2,400,000 lumens and can run for extended periods without refueling to provide an ideal lighting solution for large scale projects where around the clock operation is necessary. A single John Deere(TM) water cooled diesel engine producing 80 horsepower turns a Marathon(TM) 4 pole brushless generator to produce 49 KW/ 59KVA of power. The lighting assembly consists of sixteen 1,500 watt metal halide fixtures producing 150,000 lumens each, for a combined total of 2,400,000 lumens of light output. A single 113 gallon fuel tank provides ample fuel for operating up to 27 hours continuously, and an optional 95 gallon auxiliary fuel tank allows operators to increase runtimes substantially. The lighting assembly is mounted to the end of a hydraulically raised and extended tower constructed of galvanized steel that can be raised to a maximum of 55 feet in height for excellent coverage of locations up to 10 acres or more in size. This mobile light tower package is mounted to a heavy duty trailer with a pintle hitch hookup and includes 6 heavy duty outriggers equipped with 7,000 lbs jacks to provide secure and stable deployment. The trailer is equipped with dual 7,000 lbs. axles, electric brakes, 16 inch tubeless tires, and is finished in a durable and attractive Dupont(TM) black coating for protection against rust and corrosion. An included leveling indicator allows operators to adjust outrigger positioning for level deployment, and an included storage box provides space for tools and operating accessories. This unit also provides convenience power connections for hooking up additional equipment including two 20 AMP GFCI duplex outlets, and two 125/250V 50 AMP 3 pole 4 twist-lock outlets. This rugged high power light tower is built for large scale illumination and extended use, making it an ideal solution for construction, mining, industrial, and large scale event operators who need a mobile source of high power illumination that will allow them to maintain operations continuously through evening hours.
"The Magnalight WCDE-49-16X1500 is our new mega light tower that gives remote site operators the ability to illuminate 10 acres," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' Magnalight.com. "With 24,000 watts elevated to 60 feet, this is the ultimate light tower that easily replaces six to eight standard light towers. For oilfield and mining operators, this means less transportation, set up and maintenance."
