Larson Electronics has announced the release of a solar powered trailer equipped with a 30-foot mast, two, 265-watt solar panels, six, 50-watt LED light fixtures and a 500 amp capacity battery bank.
The SPLT-.53K-LM30-6XWP500-TLR7 portable solar powered tower features two solar panels, a solar charging station, battery bank, and a manual crank up mast mounted to a seven-foot trailer with outriggers. This system delivers 120 volts for illuminating the included 50 watt LED light fixtures mounted atop the manual crank mast.
“This new solar powered mast is fully solar and requires no fuel to operate,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “Equipping the unit with energy efficient LED lights, gives operators a lighting solution that will outlast the runtime of traditional metal halide units.”
The three-stage steel mast is designed to allow operators to quickly and safely deploy the LED light fixtures. The pole can be extended 30 feet above the trailer floor for maximum coverage and collapsed to 13 ½ feet. This unit is capable of generating a total maximum output of 0.53 KW. The panels are mounted to a frame angled at 45 degrees for optimized light intake.
The seven by seven-foot single axle trailer provides a stable platform for the steel mast and mounted equipment. Four outriggers mounted to the corners of the trailer allow operators to level the trailer and provide stability during deployment.
