Lind Light Tower

Lind Equipment is proud to announce the launch of its new Beacon LED Tower, the first light tower to be built by a lighting company, not a generator company.

The Beacon LED Tower is a high-output, man-portable light tower that can run on external electrical power or a user-supplied on-board small generator/inverter. It brings a large set of benefits to those needing remote or large area lighting, and at half the cost of traditional metal halide generator light towers.

The Beacon LED Tower uses LED floodlights that provide more mean light output than traditional metal halide bulbs, but uses 80% less power. These lights are warrantied for three years and rated for over 50,000 hours.

The small power draw of the ultra-efficient LED lights means that there is no need for a large engine or generator in the Beacon LED Tower. As such, Lind Equipment designed it to be truly man-portable. Weighing just over 200 pounds, the Beacon LED Tower can be moved around a jobsite by one person, and lifted by a couple. Two Beacon LED Towers will fit in the back of a standard-sized pick-up truck, and it is small enough to fit through a doorway.

Also, the small power draw means that the Beacon LED Tower doesn’t require much electricity to operate. Two of the LE980LED-T4 (four light head) Beacon LED Towers can be run off a single 15A circuit and require only 800W of power. If power is not available, a user-supplied small suitcase generator can sit safely inside the lockable ventilated housing and have plenty of excess energy for other uses.  Beacon LED Towers come with an outlet for daisy-chaining multiple units together.

The Beacon LED Tower comes standard with an external fuel tank (inside the housing), which supplements the run time of a suitcase generator to about 45 hours. Whether running off external power or a suitcase generator, the Beacon LED Tower is whisper-quiet, perfect for urban construction or events.

“We are incredibly excited to launch this game-changer in the light tower industry,” said Brian Astl, President of Lind Equipment. “The Beacon LED Tower provides the same useable light, run-time, and durability of traditional metal halide light towers, but with so much more.  And all at a price point half of what the industry is used to paying.”

Details of the Beacon LED Tower can be found on the Lind Equipment mini-site at www.beaconledtower.com

Clean Energy 

Canada and Sweden are setting up a new global Technology Collaboration Program (TCP) under the International Energy Agency (IEA) to promote leadership roles for women in clean energy.

The establishment of the Clean Energy Education and Empowerment TCP (C3E TCP) was announced during the recent 8th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM8) meeting in Beijing. It builds on the successful C3E initiative created by member governments of the CEM in 2010.

Low-Voltage TrendsThe shift from electrical to digital systems, and the emerging low-voltage power options to supply them, may be the biggest change the electrical industry has seen in the last 100 years. This transition is having significant impact on every aspect of the traditional electrical channel, from product conception, production, sales, delivery and installation.Equipping the channel to embrace emerging technologies, specifically those related to low-voltage direct current (LVDC) power developments,* and opportunities derived from LVDC systems, is the purpose of this research study by Electro-Federation Canada.
