The WCDE-4-8KW-4X300-LED mobile light tower is a self contained towable light tower package that produces enough light to illuminate an area up to 6 acres in size. This unit contains a water cooled diesel engine powering a 8,000 watt generator, which supplies the current to four 300 watt LED lamps producing 29,580 lumens each for a combined total of 118,320 lumens of intense white light. This unit can run uninterrupted for 60 hours straight without refueling and includes a telescoping light mast which can elevate the four IP68 rated LED lamps to a height of 30 feet. This mobile floodlight package is ideal for emergency services, large scale event illumination, construction, mining, industrial operations and anywhere an extended operation capable mobile lighting solution is needed.
The WCDE-4-8KW-4X300W-LED mobile light tower incorporates a long list of impressive features. The diesel engine is a water cooled Kubota that operates at 1800 rpm. This engine features key operated electric starting, a full twelve volt electrical system, automatic low oil pressure and high temperature safety shut-offs, dual fuel filters and easy access oil and radiator drain ports to facilitate maintenance. A 30 gallon polyethylene fuel tank allows the engine to operate for 60 hours continuously without refueling. The 8,000 watt generator is a single bearing design and produces 120/240 volt current at 60 Hz. The generator uses a four wire hookup system with an external ground allowing for setting up both electrical and mechanical safe grounding systems.
Lights: The lighting system on this unit is comprised of four 300 watt LEDP5W-60-1227 lamps producing 29,580 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 4 acres with a combined total of 118,320 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.
Durability: As well as unparalleled heat control, the LEDP5W-60 series of LED lights from VOLT Industries also offer IP68 rated construction that is designed to withstand extremes of environmental and operating conditions. These units can withstand rapid temperature changes of -40 degrees Celsius to 80 degrees Celsius, are waterproof to three meters, and resist ingress of dust, dirt and humidity. The housings are formed from extruded aluminum and the lenses are unbreakable polycarbonate. The CREE XLamp XPG® LEDs help these units achieve 15.6Grms rated resistance to vibrations and are rated at 70% lumen maintenance after 50,0000 hours of use. We recommend these LED lights for use in applications where a lot of vibration, dust, dirt, dampness and abusive working conditions are encountered.
Heat Management: Heat is the single largest factor in premature LED failure and color shifting. These LED units contain advanced drivers which use pulse width modulation to control heat buildup rather than simple voltage regulators which are typically harsh on sensitive electronics and can contribute to early LED failure. These units automatically sense the temperature of each LED and adjust the energy frequency or “duty cycle” accordingly to maintain heat levels within acceptable ranges. This system in essence flashes current at an extremely fast on and off rate to each LED based upon the LED’s core temperature. This flash rate is too fast to detect with the human eye, but provides precise control of the current flowing to each LED and thus the heat it generates. This allows the LEDs to be driven at up to 90% capacity without overheating or visible loss of light output. The LEDs are always driven at the same voltage but the duty cycle, however, is changed to alter how long the LEDs are actually on or off. The end result is more light with less heat and longer LED life with an average 70% lumen maintenance after 50,000 hours.
Controls: The operations system for this unit is a centrally located control panel within the light tower enclosure. Four circuit breaker protected switches allow individual control of the lights while an individual hour meter tracks unit operating time. Also included is an alternator warning light, fuel primer system, preheating switch, 120 volt GFCI duplex receptacle for auxiliary power takeoff and a 240V twist lock power receptacle.
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 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 with one located under the trailer tongue and two on the rear sides of the unit. The two side outriggers are adjustable and include 3,000 lbs swivel jacks for leveling and stabilizing the tower.
Housing: All of the operating components are housed within 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 noise level @ 23 ft. The entire unit can be loaded and unloaded onto trucks via forklift sleeves mounted to the outer section of the light mast. The entire unit is mounted onto a two wheel trailer with a 3,500 lbs leaf spring axle. Hitch options include standard two inch ball coupling or 3" pintle eyelet and the tongue is equipped with two standard safety chains allow for easy hookup and towing.
