Often used in outdoor environments and temporary projects, tower lights are pieces of equipment that feature high-intensity electric lamps with a mast. They are usually powered by a generator. Some models also come equipped with a solar panel that utilizes solar energy to recharge batteries. These portable light systems are a useful tool in construction and mining, emergency services, motion picture production, and other industrial applications.
What are those light towers called?
Stacklights are a great way to indicate the status of a machine or process. These pre-assembled units are quick and easy to mount and offer a choice of light modules with LED, Incandescent, or Xenon strobe options. They are a good option for communicating machine or process status to workers in other areas of the factory floor.
Most tower lights use either halide or LED technology. Metal halide lights have been the most popular for many years, but they require a long start up time to reach full brightness. LEDs, on the other hand, can be started instantly. They consume less energy than halide bulbs and generate far less heat, making them more eco-friendly.
LEDs are now starting to be seen in a wide variety of applications and industries including tower lights. They are as bright as the old flash tubes that were commonly found in tower lights, but they use far less electricity. They also generate much less heat and have a longer life. These features make them more suitable for harsh environments.
