Tough lighting tower from Atlas Copco
By Thomas Allen24 September 2020
Atlas Copco has launched its new HiLight H6+ lighting tower, which has been designed with rental in mind and was said to offer lower operational costs, reduced noise levels and greater illumination.
Available worldwide, the new model features the company’s HardHat body, made of medium-density polyethylene.
The HardHat body was said to ensure reliable performance by protecting the components inside and maintain the unit’s appearance so that it retains a high residual value.
It is moulded into a single canopy that can be removed and replaced easily for 360˚ access to internal components for maintenance.
Also, the HardHat canopy is resistant to both high and low temperatures due to its UV stability and the long-term antioxidants in the plastic.
Atlas Copco said maintenance and transport efficiency were a priority when designing the HiLight H6+. For this reason, the model has a service interval of 600 hours and it comes with an adjustable tow bar that allows users to manoeuvre the lighting tower easily while towing it.
The new unit is fitted with a new generation of LED floodlights that were said to be more efficient and illuminate an area of 6,000m2.
The LED lighting units, fitted on an 8m galvanised mast, have a lifespan of 50,000 hours.
The HiLight H6+ comes with a dimming function that not only means the light level automatically adjusts to an appropriate point but was also said to help reduce C02 emissions by up to 40% and extend the autonomy of the machine.
The lighting tower emits 55dBA at 7m, making it suitable for jobsites where noise pollution is becoming an increasingly important concern, such as in urban locations.
The unit will also be available in a 48V DC version for applications and markets that require low voltage.
