The SASRAD QS portable light tower incorporates a long list of impressive features including:
Power: AGM sealed lead acid battery, 22 amp hour, 12 VDC deep cycle with built-in charging system and a 600 charge life cycle or 3-5 year life cycle. This unit offers 4 power options, including an internal battery pack, the ability to allow AC recharging while in use, and use as a jump and carry external battery pack with an included special plug. A built in AC charger (wall charger) allows operators to easily recharge the battery, even while in use. This portable tower also accepts low voltage input from vehicles and other battery packs to power the light or charge the battery. A DC port (cigarette plug socket) allows users to power other DC devices, in effect allowing this unit to double as a portable 12VDC power supply. Included LED indicators provide operators with the current battery charge conditions.
LED Light Bars: This tower includes two 24 watt LED light heads that are IP68 rated waterproof to three meters and constructed of extruded aluminum with polycarbonate lenses for the ultimate in durability. Each LED unit is controlled by a separate switch, allowing operators to use the lights together or independently based on lighting requirements and desired battery run time. Two LED light bars will run 5+ hours, while a single LED emitter will run 10 hours. The LED light bar emitters are attached to the telescoping pole via an adjustable "T" style bracket. The LED light bars can positioned at various ideal angles and the assembly will hold that position until changed by the operator. A single coil cord provides power from the battery to the LED light heads.
Telescoping Tower: The aluminum telescoping tower is comprised of four sections and extends and locks into place much the same as a camera tripod. The user simply opens the case, folds out the telescoping tower and then locks it into position with a simple latching mechanism. The user can then extend the tower anywhere from 3 to 8 feet (0.91-2.4m) in total height and simply tighten the locking clamps to lock the tower in position. The mast from ground level to top of light is 8’.(2.4m) The actual pole is 6.5 feet (1.98m) long and the 18” (45 cm) case makes the total length. Stability is provided by two stainless steel spring loaded aluminum support legs that unfold from the case as well and are extended to 30 inches (76 cm) length and then locked into place. This tower and support system provides a stable light platform even in windy conditions up to 65 mph (104 Kph).
Watertight Case: All the components of this portable light tower stow away within the watertight case. This case includes a carrying handle and wheels to provide easier transport around the deployment area. There are no loose parts and all components fit inside the case for easy transport. All parts and controls are easily accessible simply by opening the front of the case, with controls located at the top and the battery assembly at the bottom. The entire unit weighs only 48 pounds (21.7kg) and can be easily stowed in back seats or behind the seat of a pickup truck.
Battery and lights will function at -40 F/C and + 185F / 85C.
Battery charger has charge indicator to show level of charge.
Rocker switch for internal and external power operation.
220V 50/60htz charger available on request
Also available to special order: unit with infrared LED light heads in the 850 or 940NM ranges.
FAA, DOT, CAB, IA, and TA approved for air transport.
Applications: Basically, applications where operators need to deploy lighting without the benefit of traditional high voltage power sources. Depending on the position of the light heads, operators can cover 30-50 square feet ( 2.7 – 4.6 sq m) with foot candle output which is about 3 times as bright as a well lit mall parking lot.
NOTE: This unit ships in either orange or black case colors depending upon stock. if you require a specific color please advise at time of enquiry as it may affect delivery.
