|Larson Electronics unveils new pneumatic light tower for military and defense applications.|
Larson Electronics has created a new fully customizable trailer mounted pneumatic light tower ideal for mobile lighting needs. The PLM-30-TLR Trailer Mounted Pneumatic Light Tower from Larson Electronics is a 30 foot
Magnalight's’ PLM-30-TLR trailer mounted telescoping light tower allows operators to quickly and safely deploy illumination in locations where elevated illumination is needed for maximum area coverage. This five section aluminum pneumatic light boom can be extended to 30 feet for maximum area coverage and collapsed to 8.25 feet and folded over for transport or when not in use. The mast is elevated from the fold down position using an included 1,000 lb hand winch with 3/16 inch aircraft cable, and extended to its full height using the equipped 240V AC air compressor.
This light mast is mounted to a 25 foot, single axle steel trailer with removable tongue for longer deployments and theft deterrent. Constructed of 2 inch by 3 inch square tubing, this trailer can be mounted on any 2" ball type receiver hitch. This trailer is equipped with a 4-pin flat plug for the tail lights, and four corner leveling stabilizer jacks. This light mast trailer also features a receiving bracket to secure the folded light mast during transit.
This light tower can withstand winds up to 125 mph when lowered to 10 feet. Larson Electronics can equip the mast with 1000W or 1500W Metal Halide lights or a wide variety of high powered LED lights with comparable power. The trailer includes a choice of either the manual 1,000 lbs hand winches, included standard, or optional electric winches. Either 120VAC or 12/24VDC compressors are both available during the customization process.
“This trailer is so versatile for so many applications and industries,” Rob Bresnahan, with Larsonelectronics.com said. “Our ability to customize these trailers to our customers’ needs make them unlike anything on the market today.”
