LIGHT AND POWER IN ONE TOWER

Posted By admin On November 30, -0001 @ 12:00 am In Boomerang | No Comments

STATESVILLE, N.C. ” Doosan Infracore Portable Power now offers a combination light tower and mobile generator, the Ingersoll Rand L20. This new model anchors Doosan Infracore Portable Power™s lighting systems portfolio and provides a single solution for two important jobsite needs ” power and light.


 


The L20 is ideal for mining, oil and gas exploration and a multitude of other environments where there is no reliable power source present. Traditional light towers only provide enough power for the light source. However, the L20™s 32-horsepower Mitsubishi diesel engine and 20-kilowatt generator make it the most flexible and powerful light tower in the Doosan Infracore Portable Power line, with enough power to light a wide area while simultaneously providing up to 16 kilowatts of energy to power jobsite trailers, power tools, heaters and more. 


 


The L20™s lighting system consists of four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps mounted to a telescoping mast, featuring 360º rotation and extension from 12 to 30 feet. The 20-kilowatt generator powers the lighting system and provides power to a generous array of receptacles, delivering up to 63 amps at 240 volts and 126 amps at 120 volts. When the lighting system is not in use, the generator can output up to 80 amps at 240 volts and 160 amps at 120 volts. 


 


The L20™s easy to use control system features auto start / stop capability as standard. This feature, commonly available on mobile generators, allows the unit to be started and stopped via a wired remote connection. This allows the L20 to be connected to automatic transfer switches and other devices that can control the unit remotely.  The auto start / stop is activated by a switch on the control panel and can be toggled between automatic and manual mode.


 


Optional on the L20 is the innovative AutoLamp system. Using a built-in photocell, AutoLamp automatically engages the lighting system at dusk, keeping the worksite illuminated until dawn, or until the system™s user-programmable timer shuts off.  AutoLamp controls only the lighting system, so other devices connected to the generator receive continuous uninterrupted power. By ensuring the lighting system operates only when needed results in increased lamp life and as much as an 18 percent increase in fuel efficiency.


 


The L20™s enclosure is built with rugged components designed to withstand the abuse of construction applications. In an industry first, the L20™s front panel is coated with a rubberized material, similar in composition to spray-on bedliners for trucks, for the ultimate in resistance to dings and stone chips caused by debris kicked up by the towing vehicle.


 



 


A standard 27-gallon fuel tank provides 69 hours of continuous light source operation or 12.5 hours of runtime at 100 percent load. An optional 50-gallon tank can extend operation of the L20 to 138 hours of lighting only or 25 hours at full load.
