New battery-powered LED light tower from Atlas Copco offers zero noise and emissions

New HiLight Z3+

13 jan 2021

Den kompakta belysningsmasten HiLight Z3+ har en användningstid på upp till 32 timmar, lång livslängd, minimalt underhåll och låga driftskostnader. Den drivs med litiumjonbatterier och kan användas vid byggarbetsplatser i stadsmiljöer, utomhusevenemang och industriområden. Den arbetar tyst och ger dessutom inga utsläpp, vilket gör att den kan följa alla miljökrav för stadsmiljöer.

This launch represents a major leap forward in terms of what is achievable with a battery-powered light tower. Before selecting the battery type, we undertook extensive R&D to ensure we would provide our customers with the best-in-class performance they expect – not just in terms of running hours, but also reliability, ease-of-use and total cost of ownership. The end result is the HiLight Z3+, which offers a yearly reduction of 1 tonne of CO2 emissions and diesel savings of more than 1,000 litres*.

The enhanced performance of the HiLight Z3+ light tower stems from its use of lithium-ion battery technology. In comparison to lead-acid and gel battery types, it offers up to 20 per cent more DoD (Depth of Discharge), three times more energy density and a lifetime of 6,000 cycles; equivalent to 6 times more than alternative technologies. Furthermore, the light tower’s charging time, directly from auxiliary, grid or portable generator supply units is just 6 hours for the standard Z3+ unit.The HiLight Z3+ features a high luminosity lamp assembly comprised of 4 x 160 W LEDs, with a life expectancy of 50,000 hours. Combined with specially designed directional glass optics, the floodlights provide optimal light distribution over a 3000 m2 illumination area. The LED lighting units are supported by a hydraulically elevated vertical mast, certified wind-stable up to 80 km/h, with a maximum operating height of 8 m. Capable of operating within a temperature range of -20 to 50 degrees C, the Z3+ has been designed with portability and transportation efficiency in mind. The compact dimensions of the light tower, which measures 1160 x 1160 x 2500 mm, allow up to 22 units to be accommodated on a 13-metre truck. All-weather protection is provided by a galvanised steel canopy and powder coated paintwork. The HiLight range of battery, electric and diesel-powered, LED and metal halide light towers is designed to offer the widest choice for construction, road works, public events, and industrial applications. Atlas Copco offers a broad range of flexible and dynamic portable lighting solutions, which combine robust build quality and compact size, while addressing all aspects of efficiency, safety and environmental impact.
