Larson Electronics, Kemp, Texas, has announced the release of a metal halide light tower with three lamp fixtures and a wheeled and adjustable tower assembly, designed to provide full power illumination in an easy-to-deploy portable package. The WAL-C-3XM Quadpod Mini Light Tower utilizes a four-leg tower design for high stability and a triple metal halide lamp assembly to provide enough power to illuminate 114,000 square feet of work area, yet can be quickly broken down for transport and just as easily reassembled.
The tower assembly is constructed of powder-coated steel for high strength and has a base fitting with two 10-inch wheels to allow operators to simply tilt the tower back and roll it into the desired position once set up. The mast is adjustable and can be extended from 7 feet to 12 feet in height using an included hand winch, allowing operators to achieve maximum coverage of large work areas. A control box containing the lamp ballast is mounted to the tower base and features a built-in on/off switch, line circuit protection, and power indicator light.
The lamp assembly atop this tower features three 1,000-watt metal halide lamps producing 110,000 lumens each, for a total of 330,000 lumens of light output. Each lamp is independently adjustable and can be moved vertically and horizontally to provide even and full coverage of large work spaces. Tools are not required to assemble and disassemble this tower, and the entire lamp assembly can be lifted from the tower and the mast and leg assembly collapsed and folded, allowing the components to be easily transported in the back of a small truck or even a car. Tower also includes 25 feet of durable SOOW cord ending with a L6-30 plug and is available in 220 and 240 VAC configurations for added versatility. Recommended for construction sites, mining work, industrial manufacturing, emergency services, and plant servicing operations, to name just a few applications.
