KEMP, Texas, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larson Electronics has introduced a new heavy duty light tower featuring pneumatic operation and over 29,000 lumens of high intensity light output. Designed for easy setup and effective illumination of large scale worksites and outdoor areas, the PLM-18-2X150W-LED Pneumatic Light Tower provides an ideal lighting solution for operators who require a powerful lighting system with minimal setup requirements.


The Larson Electronics PLM-18-2X150W-LED Pneumatic Light Tower provides over 29,000 lumens of high power light output in a pneumatically powered tower lighting system capable of being extended from 8 to 18 feet in height. The two heavy duty 150 watt LED lamps on this tower produce a wide spread of intense white light, allowing this unit to effectively cover large work areas with high quality illumination. This tower is a three stage unit that is extended to its full height via air pressure provided by an included compressor. The tower assembly consists of three sections, and rather than have to manually winch the unit to the desired height with a hand crank, operators can simply power on the compressor to extend the tower to any height between 8 and eighteen feet. To lower the tower operators simply bleed off the air pressure using a release valve built into the base of the tower. The lamp assembly consists of two powerful 150 watt LED lamps producing 14,790 lumens each. These LED lights contain CREE LEDs for the highest performance possible, and are weatherproof and waterproof with housings formed from extruded aluminum and unbreakable polycarbonate lenses for the highest durability. The dual LED lamps are fitted to the mast with a removable bracket that provides secure mounting and allows operators to easily remove the entire lamp assembly for transport if desired. This tower can be mounted to trailers to produce an easily mobile lighting system using an included a 12 inch square, 1/2 inch thick mounting base-plate that has been predrilled for convenience. This mounting plate also allows the tower to be mounted to just about any suitable flat platform that will provide enough strength and stability, giving operators a wide range of mounting options. This tower lighting system operates with standard 120 VAC for convenience, and Larson Electronics offers the ability for custom options including different power configurations, alternative metal halide lamps, and LED lamps of varying wattage and intensity. This pneumatic tower is ideal for operators who need an easy to deploy tower lighting system capable of illuminating large scale areas that can be mounted to trailers for mobility or permanently mounted id desired.

"The PLM-18-2X150W-LED pneumatic LED light tower is an alternative to conventional crank up metal halide light towers," said Rob Bresnahan with "While the initial cost of acquisition in higher, the total cost of ownership for these is much lower, since the light heads don't require replacement.  Metal halide lights produce a lot of illumination, but are more delicate during transportation and usage that LED light heads that produce similar light output.  So if you factor in the cost of maintenance, operators and rental companies alike will see value in using LED light towers."

Larson Electronics offers a wide array of light towers and portable LED lighting systems, paint spray booth lights, explosion proof flights and metal halide light towers. Larson Electronics provides a full line of industrial grade lighting suitable for any size job or location and can custom tailor lighting to the specific needs of customers.
