Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) has extended its LED light tower range with the introduction of the ShorePlug connector.

Standard on all new Terex AL4L generator LED light towers, the ShorePlug connector allows multiple light towers to be connected in-line and operate from a single power source. One of them is on display at the Lift and Access Showcase and Symposium in Orlando, Florida, USA, which finishes today.

Terex LED light towers offer crisper lighting capabilities and consume far less electrical power compared to 4000W metal-halide models, said the company. In addition, powering multiple light towers with a single generator greatly reduces fuel consumption and engine noise compared to operating metal halide light towers with individual generators, added the manufacturer.

“The ShorePlug connector is beneficial for jobsites that demand greater fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance,” said Chad Hislop, Terex AWP light tower product manager, “With a 50,000 hour bulb life, the LED lights last five times longer than metal-halide lights and the LED towers have instant on/off operation. Low light pollution and sharp side cut-off reduces road glare to motorists, making the LED light towers ideal across a wide range of applications.”
