The HAL-WCDE-12KW-4X1000 mobile light tower includes a water cooled diesel engine that produces 12kw standby power and 10kw prime power at 1800 rpm. This engine features key operated electric starting, a full twelve volt electrical system, automatic low oil pressure and high temperature safety shutoffs, dual fuel filters and easy access oil and radiator drain ports to facilitate maintenance. The 20 gallon fuel tank is sized to allow the engine to operate for up to 12 hours continuously without refueling.
Generator: The 12,000 watt, 12kva generator is a brushless design with Class F minimum insulation producing 120/240 volt, 1ph. @ 60hz. This hazardous location light tower includes an ignition spark arrestor and heat insulated muffler (fiberglass wrap). The generator uses a four wire hookup system with an external ground allowing for setting up both electrical and mechanical safe grounding systems. The system is equipped with two explosion proof EDC-2023 Class 1, Div. 1, 120 Volt AC plugs rated at 15 amps, and two explosion proof EDC-20232 Class I, Div. I 250 Volt plugs rated at 20 amps.
Lights: The lighting system on this unit is comprised of four Class 1 Division 2 1,000 watt metal halide lamps producing 110,000 lumens of light each attached to the end of the telescoping light boom. These floodlights produce a wide flood light pattern capable of illuminating a minimum of 5 acres with a combined total of 440,000 lumens of light. Each floodlight is securely fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help maintain lamp stability within its housing. The lamps are connected to the power source via a water tight male pin connector that attaches to a receptacle located on the end of the telescoping boom. These lamps are Class I, Division 2 groups A,B,C, and D. Click here for more detailed information on the lights used with this tower.
Controls: The operations system for this unit is a centrally located control panel located within the light tower enclosure. Four Class 1 Division 1 switches allow individual on/off control of the lights while an individual hour meter tracks unit operating time. Also included is a battery charging indicator and alternator failure gauges.
Telescoping Boom: The telescoping boom consists of three sections extending up to 30 feet through the use of two manual self braking winches and allows for rotating the lights 360 degrees. One winch is mounted to the trailer tongue and acts to raise the tower into a vertical position while the other is mounted to the boom and is used to extend the tower to the desired height. The telescoping boom is constructed of galvanized steel to resist rusting and corrosion and comes powder coated to prevent friction and rusting between tower sections. This system is capable of withstanding 65 mph winds when extended to its full height and the stabilizing outriggers are deployed. The stabilizing outriggers are a three point design abilizing outriggers with one located under the trailer tongue and two on the rear sides of the unit. The two rear outriggers are adjustable and include 1500 lbs, swivel jacks for leveling and stabilizing the tower.
Housing: All of the operating components are housed with a protective compartment constructed of 14 gauge steel and designed to provide airflow for cooling. Side doors provide access to the interior while latches provide secure closing while the unit is in use. The design and construction of this enclosure along with the commercial grade muffler system helps this unit operate at a low 63 Db level @ 23 ft.
Trailer: The entire unit is mounted onto a two wheel trailer with a 3,500 lbs leaf spring axle and 15” wheels with protected fenders. A standard two inch ball coupling and two standard safety chains allow for easy hookup and towing. The entire unit can be loaded and unloaded onto trucks via forklift sleeves mounted to the outer section of the light mast. The entire light tower system generator weighs 1850 pounds with shipping dimensions measuring 13 feet long, 8 feet wide and 6 feet tall.
