The PLM-18-4X150W-LED telescoping pneumatic light tower from Larson Electronics incorporates a pneumatically powered tower and four 150 watt LED lamps to allow operators to quickly and easily illuminate large outdoor locations with over 59,000 lumens of high intensity light output. Designed with power, durability, and easy deployment in mind, this light tower features industrial grade construction and a pneumatic mast powered by an included 1/3rd horsepower compressor to give operators the ability to extend the mast anywhere from 8 to 18 feet in height without the need for tiring hand cranks or cable winches. A single release valve located at the bottom of the mast lets operators simply open the valve to release pressure and gently lower the mast once it is time for transport. The LED lamp assembly consists of four 150 watt LED lamps mounted to a single removable bracket that is secured to the mast with a lock pin to allow easy removal of the lamp assembly for transport if desired. Each LED lamp is constructed with an extruded aluminum housing with unbreakable polycarbonate lens and is IP68 rated waterproof to three meters of submersion, making these lamps impervious to the effects of driving rain, windy and dusty conditions, and able to withstand the most demanding work environments. Each lamp also features its own adjustable mounting bracket, letting operators adjust the lamps for the most effective coverage of the area to be illuminated. The lamps are connected to the main wiring harness with waterproof connectors, and the harness routes through the mast to prevent the exposing of any wiring to potential damage. This light tower is designed to be mounted to flat and stable platforms such as a trailer or truck bed using an included twelve inch square by half inch thick mounting plate that has been predrilled for easier installation. When mounted to a trailer this tower becomes a very effective mobile lighting solution that can be easily transported and set up in minutes by a single person with minimal effort, making it ideal for utilities or emergency services where providing powerful illumination quickly and safely is critical. This light tower is the latest in high power lighting from Larson Electronics, and as a manufacturer Larson’s is able to offer a variety of options such as 1,000 or 1,500 watt metal halide lamps and a huge variety of LED lamps in various colors and beam configurations to let operators tailor this tower to their specific requirements. The PLM-18-4X150W-LED is a powerful and effective lighting solution that can be applied to a wide range of applications including construction sites, industrial plants, utilities services, emergency operations, and just about any type of location where powerful and effective lighting is needed.
“The PLM-18-4X150W-LED pneumatic LED light tower is an alternative to conventional crank up metal halide light towers,” said Rob Bresnahan with LarsonElectronics.com. “While the initial cost of acquisition is higher, the total cost of ownership for these is much lower, since the light heads don’t require replacement. Metal halide lights produce a lot of illumination, but are more delicate during transportation and usage that LED light heads that produce similar light output. So if you factor in the cost of maintenance, operators and rental companies alike will see value in using LED light towers.”
