Larson Electronics Introduces MegaTower Pneumatic Light Mast
Larson Electronics’ LM-50-5S-TLR-16X400LTL-LED MegaTower pneumatic light mast enables operators to quickly deploy 16 500-watt LED light heads to elevations up to 50 feet. The tower folds over for easy transportation, features a hydraulic ram upright assist, an air powered pneumatic mast and high output LED light fixtures. The entire assembly is mounted on a 21’ by 8’ tandem axle trailer that allows operators to transport the boom from one location to another. The mast is elevated from its horizontal resting position by using an included hydraulic ram and is extended to its full height of 58’ with a trailer mounted air compressor. A push button switch operates the hydraulic ram, allowing operators to raise the mast to the upright position. An up/down level operates the vertical deployment, allowing operators to extend it to its full 50’ height or retract it to the 22’ collapsed height.
The 16 light heads are Larson’s wet area suitable GAU-LTL-600W-LED high output LED fixtures producing 60,000 lumens of light at 500 watts each. Each light head contains 48 CREE high output LEDs producing 1,250 lumens each. Each light 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 hard wired into a NEMA 3R panel located on the end of the telescoping boom. Power is provided to the control box via a 20’ 10/4 SOOW whip with flying leads for connection to terminal mount gensets. The entire unit is mounted onto a four wheel, tandem axle trailer constructed of 8” box steel equipped with axles. Each axle is rated at 7,000 pounds and equipped with tubeless tires and wheels. A single 7,000 pound rated tongue jack provides a stable connect-disconnect platform as well as additional stability during tower deployment. The trailer finish protects against rust and corrosion.
