The Atlas Copco light-tower range is extended with the HiLight V4W, a new model designed for use at high altitudes and in extreme weather conditions (including temperatures to 122 F).
The 8 kW HiLight V4W uses a three-cylinder, water-cooled engine designed to operate in hot conditions and at altitudes greater than 6,500 feet. High-altitude power de-rating will not affect the performance of the V4W, says Atlas Copco, and a 42-gallon fuel tank allows up to 90 hours of run time.
The new light tower is equipped with four 1000W metal-halide lamps, capable of illuminating a 43,000-square-foot area with an average brightness of 20 lux. The HiLight V4W incorporates a manually operated vertical mast, which rotates 360 degrees and provides a maximum operating height of 25 feet. An electric winch is available. The mast can withstand wind speeds to 51 mph.
The HiLight V4W is housed on a “uni-body” trailer with a four-point levelling system and having a heavy-duty base frame and stabilizers. Features include a spillage-free frame and the company’s HardHat polyethylene canopy and scissors-type doors. The HiLight V4W also can be fitted with an optional photocell and weekly timer. The photocell measures the luminosity and can be activated by sunlight, says Atlas Copco, while the latter feature allows scheduling of different lighting events.
