LIGHTS: Brighter, safer tower models from Atlas Copco



STOCKHOLM – Atlas Copco has expanded its range of HiLight towers to seven models, including four advanced LED solutions. The comprehensive HiLight range gives users a variety of choices when it comes to sourcing safe and efficient light towers for multiple applications and industries, including mining, construction, outdoor events and industrial applications.

Atlas Copco’s latest LED light towers feature a unique, fully directional optic lens that maximizes practical light coverage while minimizing dark spots. A single HiLight LED light tower, depending on the model, can illuminate large areas with an average brightness of 20 lux. They also can run as long as 260 hours before needing to be refueled and consume less than 0.95 litres of fuel per hour. Dedicated power packs minimize the risk of under-loading the engine, which enhances efficiency and improves power pack longevity.

The LED lamps are designed for portability and performance with heavy duty floodlights that offer high ingress protection (IP) and impact protection (IK) ratings. The LED lamps also offer extreme durability without deterioration in lux level while providing instant light. The HiLights’ LED bulbs withstand rugged site conditions, minimizing the need for replacements. The bulbs also require minimal fuel, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 70% on each model.

Atlas Copco’s B5+ is easily transported and installed.

Atlas Copco’s HiLight H5+ is ideal for large construction sites where workers are constantly on the move. The unit offers low fuel consumption and each of its four LED lamps project 350 Watts of light for a 4,935-m2 illumination area. The H5+ is compact and easy to transport.

The HiLight B5+ is recommended for applications including mining, road construction, temporary public lighting, and remote sites. Demonstrating Atlas Copco’s latest LED technology, the lamps offer exceptional durability without any loss in lux levels. The vertical hydraulic mast provides maximum safety for workers by illuminating an area as large as 4,935 m2. The B5+ model features a compact box-unit design, which makes it ideal for mass transportation and easy installation.

Ideal for general construction and tough mining conditions, the HiLight V5+ can also illuminate a 4,935-m2 area while saving as much as 60% in fuel compared to the typical fuel consumption of a 6-kW metal halide solution. The LED lamps in the V5+ are designed for both portability and performance.

The HiLight V4 is the leading solution within the 4,000-Watt metal-halide light tower segment and can illuminate an area of 3,930 m2. The V4 model, like the V5+, integrate a number of important features, including a spillage-free frame and the renowned HardHat® polyethylene canopy. Unlike ABS canopies, the HardHat canopy will not crack on impact with debris or other materials.

The HiLight V4’s metal halide sibling, the HiLight H4, has a heavy duty galvanized steel canopy, hydraulic mast and can illuminate an area of 3,930 m2.

Completing the expanded range, the new HiLight E2 and E3+ are electric models with exceptional plug-and-light capabilities. Users simply connect to any power source, including auxiliary power, an electrical generator or directly into the grid, which helps deliver superior levels of energy efficiency. The E2 covers about 1,925 m2, and the E3+, which benefits from the latest LED technology, can illuminate a 2,925-m2 area.
