The new light tower from Atlas Copco offers low operational costs and reduced noise levels while increasing illumination coverage. The HiLight H6+ is ideal to use in tough environments, such as applications in construction, mining, events, and rental, thanks to Atlas Copco’s innovative HardHat® body (Figure 1).
The HiLight H6+ light tower comes with Atlas Copco’s innovative HardHat® body, made of medium-density polyethylene rather than metal, to protect the working operation underneath from the elements. This design-focus and tough material ensures the performance and appearance lasts throughout years of service, helping to retain a high resale value and provide the customer with outstanding total cost of ownership. The HardHat® is resistant to corrosion, crack-resistant, environmentally friendly, and better able to meet the tough demands of on-site use. Molded into a single pop-up canopy it is easy to fit and remove from the light tower, providing an access of 360º to the unit for internal maintenance, so it is easy to maintain. Service downtime is decreased due to its heavy-duty filtration system. The HardHat® is resistant to both low and high temperatures thanks to its UV stability and the long-term antioxidants of the plastic, making it suitable for work in virtually any environment. Additionally, HiLight H6+ offers customizable colors to meet customers’ needs.
Maintenance and transport efficiency were a priority when designing the HiLight H6+. On the first front, the light tower only requires a simple service after 600 h of operation which can be carried out in 40 min. The light tower features an adjustable tow bar to provide flexibility, as it allows users to handle and transport the HiLight H6+ easily while towing with vans, trucks and pick-ups.
The HiLight H6+ features a new generation of LED floodlights that are more efficient and provide optimal light distribution up to 6,000 m2 illumination area. The new light tower from Atlas Copco comes with a dimming function to offer the right luminosity at each moment, delivering up to 40 % CO2 savings and extending the autonomy over 300 h. The control panel for the HiLight H6+ is in an exterior lateral so it is easy to access and use. This is a great benefit for users, as the doors where rotating parts are do not need to be opened to operate this light tower. The LED lighting units have 50.000 h lifespan and are supported by an 8 m galvanized mast.
Excessive noise generated by portable equipment is becoming increasingly unacceptable in urban environments, industrial work areas and events. For this reason, the HiLight H6+ delivers a significant reduction in noise levels, becoming the quietest light tower in the market emitting 55 dBA at 7 m.
The HiLigiht H6+ will also be available in a 48 V DC version for applications or markets that requiere low voltage. Atlas Copco offers a broad choice of flexible and dynamic portable lighting solutions, which combine robust build quality and compact size, while addressing all aspects of efficiency, safety, and environmental impact to provide cost-effective lighting.
