The LM-16-FM-6X1500W-EW Light Tower from Larson Electronics is a sixteen-foot extendable light tower equipped with an electric winch and six metal halide light fixtures that produce approximately 150,000 lumens each.
The six 1,500-watt metal halide lamps produce a wide spread of intense white light, allowing this unit to effectively cover large work areas with high quality illumination. These lamps have nineteen-inch reflectors and are constructed of aluminum with a clear tempered glass lens which is secured into place with a heavy duty gasket and single ring lock.
These floodlights produce a wide flood light pattern capable of illuminating approximately ten acres. Each floodlight is securely fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help maintain lamp stability within its housing.
This two section light boom can be extended to sixteen feet for maximum area coverage and collapsed to nine feet.
The tower is constructed of square steel tubing. The mast is extended to its full height using an included 1,000-pound rated 120-volt Dutton Lainson electric winch with 3/16-inch aircraft cable. The electric winches are controlled by a programmable logic relay and reflective sensors as opposed to physical limit switches for ease of use and safety. The lamps are connected to the power service via a water tight male pin connector that attaches to a receptacle located on the back of the light boom.
These light masts are typically mounted to trailers or other stable surfaces via a 15-by-13 inch, 1/2-inch-thick mounting base plate that has been predrilled to accept six 3/4-inch anchor bolts. A 24-inch-wide and 1/4-inch-thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for the metal halide fixtures.
This light tower can withstand winds up to 125 mph when lowered to 9.6 feet.
“We can custom build a light tower for customers with certain specifications,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “We have equipped this light mast with a 1,000-pound-rated electric winch for ease of operation.”
