Atlas Copco unveils new range of HiLight towers

Atlas Copco have expanded their light tower range to offer seven models, including four which use LEDs. The comprehensive, safe and efficient HiLight range will meet the needs of users across a variety of applications, including construction, outdoor events and industry.

LED HiLight tower

Atlas Copco’s range of light towers, known as HiLight, comprises both energy efficient LED options (the H5+, B5+ and E3+) and metal halide variants (the E4 and H4).

The operational savings are achieved largely by dedicated power packs that optimise the power output and improve efficiency by protecting against under-loading of the engine. As a result, the lifetime of the LED models’ power pack module is improved. The LED lamps are designed for both portability and performance. The heavy-duty floodlights have both high ingress protection (IP) and impact protection (IK) ratings. As an additional benefit, LED lamps are more durable without any deterioration in lux level while providing instant light. LED HiLight models also minimise the need for regular bulb replacements, which is typical in many construction environments, and reduce CO2 emissions by 70% by consuming less fuel.

The latest LED light towers feature a unique, fully directional optic lens that maximises practical light coverage while minimising ‘dark spots’ to ensure efficiency. Depending on the model, a single LED light tower can illuminate an area up to 5,000m2 with an average brightness of 20 lux for 260 hours between refuelling, consuming less than 0.5 litre of fuel per hour.

“With the latest additions to the rebranded HiLight range and intensive research into cutting-edge lighting technology, sites can be brighter, safer and more productive”

Sergio Salvador, product marketing manager

H5+

Ideal for large construction sites, the latest edition to the range is the premium HiLight H5+, which demonstrates exceptionally low fuel consumption. With four LED lamps each projecting 350W of light, the HiLight H5+ can illuminate an area of 5,000m2, offering the best luminosity. Easy to transport, the model’s compact size means 10 units can be moved on a single standard 13 metre truck.

B5+

The HiLight B5+ model is ideal for music and sporting events, residential construction, road construction, temporary public lighting and oil and gas requirements. 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 of up to 5,000m2. The B5+ features a compact box-unit design, which makes it perfect for mass transportation and easy installation. Consuming less than 0.5 litre of fuel per hour, the B5+ has a running time of 260 hours between refuellings.

E2 & E3

Completing the expanded range, the new HiLight E2 and E3+ are electric models which demonstrate exceptional plug-and-light capabilities. Users simply connect to any power source, including auxiliary power, electrical generator or directly into the grid, which helps deliver superior levels of energy efficiency.

The E2 covers approximately 2,000m2 and the E3+, which benefits from the latest LED technology, can illuminate an area of 3,000m2. They can be used for applications including events, urban construction, road construction and temporary public lighting.
