With over 40 years as a leader in the industrial and commercial lighting industry, Larson Electronics continues its commitment to providing high grade lighting equipment to specialty markets with the release of a towable, self-contained LED light tower powered by a water cooled diesel engine.
The WCDE-4-4-4X400LTL-LED mobile light tower from Larson Electronics is a self-contained towable light tower package that produces enough light to illuminate up to seven acres of an area. This unit contains a water cooled diesel engine powering a 6,000 watt generator which supplies the current to the four 400 watt LED lamp heads. The lighting system on this unit is comprised of four 400 watt LED lamps producing 52,000 lumens of light. These floodlights produce a wide flood light pattern capable of illuminating seven acres with a combined total of 208,000 lumens of light. Each light is securely fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help maintain lamp stability within its housing. The lamps are connected to the power source via a water tight male pin connector that attaches to a receptacle located on the end of the telescoping boom. These lamps offer an IP67 rated construction that can resist the ingress of dust, dirt, and humidity. These units can withstand rapid temperature changes and are designed to withstand extremes of environmental and operating conditions.
The diesel engine is a water cooled Kubota that operates at 1800 RPMs. The engine features key operated electric starting, a full twelve volt electrical system, automatic low pressure and high temperature safety shutoffs, dual fuel filters and easy access oil and radiator drain ports to facilitate maintenance. A 30 gallon fuel tank allows the engine to operate for eighty hours continuously without refueling. The operations system for this unit is a centrally located control panel within the light tower enclosure. Four circuit breaker protected switches allow individual control of the lights while an individual meter tracks operating time. The telescoping boom consists of three sections extending up to 30’ through the use of two manual self-braking winches and allows for rotating the lights 360°. One winch is mounted to the trailer tongue and raises the unit to the vertical position. The second winch is mounted to the boom and provides the elevation of the boom. Three stabilizing outriggers, one located at the tongue of the trailer and two located at the back of the trailer, provide stability when the tower is fully deployed. The entire unit is mounted onto a two wheel trailer with a 2,000 pound leaf spring axle. A standard two inch ball coupling and two standard safety chains allow for easy hookup and towing.
“This towable, self-contained LED light plant is powered by a water cooled diesel engine turning a single bearing, 4 pole generator which produces 6,000 watts,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “This new lighting package produces 208,000 lumens of intense, bright light capable of illuminating a seven acre area.”
