Atlas Copco has expanded its HiLight tower range with the launch of three new advanced LED plug-and-light models: the P2+ together with the V2+ and V3+, which can all be powered directly from an auxiliary power source, the grid or a portable generator. All three energy-efficient additions offer minimum maintenance, easy portability and safe transportation.
Ideal for illuminating outdoor events anywhere in the world, the HiLight P2+ floodlight provides 360-degree coverage across a 2,000 m2 illumination area. This is a much greater distance than traditional balloon style light towers. The 320 W LED light source is housed within a weatherproof cylindrical polyethylene housing that ensures there is no risk of burnout; providing for a longer operating lifetime. The entire assembly weighs in at just 45 kg, yet is remarkably robust and is certified as being wind-stable up to 50 km/h. The manually elevated vertical mast provides a maximum operating height of 5.5 metres.
Designed for use in road works and construction site applications, the HiLight V2+ and V3+ are housed on a four-wheel trailer for ease of transportation. Both models come with a heavy-duty steel frame and are protected by polyethylene bumpers designed to the same high standards as Atlas Copco’s HardHat canopy. The V2+ light tower comprises a 320W LED light source, covering 2,000 m2. The HiLight V3+ is equipped with 4 x 120 W LED lamps combined with specially designed directional glass optics capable of illuminating an area of up to 3,000m2. Both the V2+ and V3+ have manually operated vertical masts that extend up to 5.5 metres and allow for 9 degrees of rotation.
“Our new HiLight towers are designed to help workers experience a brighter, safer environment that will enhance their productivity. What’s more, the LED lamps experience no burn-out problems and have a life expectancy of 30,000 hours, which contributes to lower maintenance costs and longer service intervals.”
When access to the grid isn’t possible and portable power supply is required, Atlas Copco recommends powering the light towers with its compact, low-noise iP portable generators. Combining variable speed smart control and paralleling capability, these units deliver efficient power with the lowest fuel consumption by adapting engine speed to the required load conditions.
