The Ingersoll Rand LightSource (LS) light tower from Doosan Infracore Portable Power has been updated with new light fixtures that provide improved lighting output and distribution. The LightSource (LS) light tower, with a standard 6-kilowatt generator, operates four 1,000-watt, metal-halide floodlights for up to 52 hours of continuous operation. The new standard metal-halide lights now provide a NEMA 6 x 7 beam spread for better light distribution and area coverage.
The new fixture design, with a side-mounted/horizontally positioned bulb in each rectangular floodlight, provides broader light distribution of 460 foot-candles, a 16 percent improvement over previous models. Cast-aluminum fixture housings include a separate reflector that lowers the risk of disruptive light distribution and offers a more robust light. The fixtures have a smaller footprint for reduced wind load.
The control panel on the LightSource (LS) light tower includes individual lamp switches, GFI-protected 120-volt/15-amp duplex, standard 240-volt/20-amp twist-lock receptacle(s), key-switch ignition and an hour meter. A low fuel level indicator light can be added to the control panel as an option.
The heavy-duty galvanized steel tower on the LightSource (LS) unit is a three-section mast that extends from 12 to 30 feet. The mast is raised by either dual, hand-operated winches or optional electric winches. At full mast and with all four outrigger/jacks secured, the unit can withstand winds up to 65 mph. The tower can be rotated 360 degrees and locked into position for precise aiming of floodlights. For traveling and storage, a system automatically locks the tower into place when in the horizontal position.
Safe towing of the Ingersoll Rand LightSource (LS) light tower is ensured with a standard combo hitch (2-inch ball and 2.5-inch pintle hitch), two-light towing package, side markers, and reflectors; all of which meet U.S. Federal and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. All critical wiring is extended to the drawbar to enable easy hookup to the tow vehicle. The heavy-duty, 3,000-pound axle ensures trouble-free travel on and off the jobsite. The wide track and low center of gravity provide a high resistance to rollover.
The LightSource (LS) light tower is equipped with a Kubota D1105-E3BG 1,800-rpm water-cooled Tier 4 engine. The reliable and rugged engine, coupled with a brushless, single-phase 6 kW generator, provides power for the light tower.
