JCB Generators Australia has announced a new LED lighting tower which offers customers 50% fuel savings.

The brand new LT9 LED model uses a 3 cylinder engine, along with the latest LED technology to run for 50% longer than the standard LT9 on a single tank of fuel due to the reduced power requirement for the LED lights.

Features of the LT9 LED include:

⁃ Nine-metre hydraulically activated, telescopic mast.
⁃ Digital display with integrated electronic timer.
⁃ 5KW of auxiliary power available even when the LEDs are lit.
⁃ Weighs just 1100Kg with a full tank of fuel (100 litres).
⁃ Low noise levels of 87LwA or 62dBa at 7m from the 1500rpm Yanmar 3 cylinder engine.

 While the standard LT9 uses four 1000W metal halide bulbs, the new LT9 LED is equipped with six 240W LED lamps providing a total output of 180,000 lumens.  Each lamp can be individually adjusted for angle and rotation, to provide clear, direct light to suit any application.  The LED lamps have the added benefit of supplying instant illumination, with no requirements for warm up or cool down of the lamps.

With no glass or bulbs to replace and a high resistance to breakage, LED technology is a natural choice for mobile models such as the JCB lighting tower range.  In fact the life of expectancy of the LEDs is up to 50,000 hours, so they will last the life of the machine. The LED lamps require considerably less power, resulting in lower fuel use and a longer run time on a single tank of fuel, and as they have no fine filaments in the lights, they also eliminate the cost and inconvenience caused by failures of the metal halide bulbs that can easily happen from transport vibration while being delivered to site.

The added benefit from the use of LEDs combined with the 1.1ltr engine is that even when all the lamps are on, there is still up to 5kVA of power available for the external sockets to power up to two more LED lighting towers.  As JCB uses an AVR controlled alternator, as opposed to a capacitor controlled unit, the electrical output is very stable,  making it ideal for all applications including audio visual or computer equipment, which means this machine is perfect for events and security applications as well as construction.    

New to JCB’s lighting tower range is the integrated electronic timer. The new LT9 LED model will include a seven day timer as standard, extending run time and allowing the unit to be fully automatic. This will help improve efficiency by ensuring the unit only runs when required, as well as reducing maintenance and associated costs.
