Atlas Copco has unveiled a new plug and play light tower, the QLB 02.
Designed with four 400W metal halide luminaires, the QLB 02 can safely and effectively illuminate an area of up to 2,000m2t, Atlas Copco stated.
The new light tower provides increased operator flexibility by allowing users to easily plug into any power source including auxiliary power, electrical generator or directly into the grid.
The individual luminaires can be manually adjusted to ensure light is provided only where needed, helping to ensure energy and lighting efficiency.
For large sites, up to four QLB 02 light towers can be connected to a single power source.
An optional programmable timer allows users to choose from 84 on/off programmes to achieve the desired lighting requirements – including the ability to program the light to auto start in the mornings and shut off in the evenings.
“The new QLB 02 light tower is designed for simplicity and flexibility, giving users the ability to manoeuvre the light tower to any required site,” Sergio Salvador, product marketing manager for Light Towers within Atlas Copco's portable energy division, explained.
"All units are fitted with wheels, forklift pockets and a lifting eye, providing users with a safe and secure method to transport the light tower; [it is also] so compact that up to 32 units can be transported on a single truck.”
With a manual lifting system, users can raise the seven-metre mast to the desired height to achieve maximum luminosity.
The four stabilisers make sure that the light tower is sturdy, whether on flat or uneven ground, and can withstand winds up to 80 km/h.
The rugged frame and metallic canopy provide additional protection for the unit.
