Atlas Copco’s new state-of-the-art, ultra-efficient HiLight S2+ LED mast uses solar radiation as its energy source to provide optimum performance and illumination over an area of 2,000 m².
“The fact that HiLight S2+ is powered by a renewable energy source, i.e. the sun, means not only zero noise, zero fuel consumption and zero emissions, but also zero use of the planet’s limited resources during operation,” notes David Stanford, Atlas. Copco Power Technique business area manager, portable devices. He adds that this HiLight mast allows users to constantly compliance with noise and carbon emission standards.
Thanks to the ergonomic and user-friendly design of the light mast the installation can be quickly and easily set up for operation. Retractable The solar panels can be simply pulled out of the retractable canopy and and can be adjusted to best suit the position of the sun. The solar panels can be simply retracted and adjusted in this way so that the sun’s position is optimally adjusted to the mast.
The batteries of the S2+ can also be charged using solar power, which takes approximately eight hours. Using an external power source, the batteries can be charged in just three hours. “Our highly flexible solar lighting mast provides autonomous operation for up to eleven hours at 100% load,” confirms Stanford . “. An external control panel and dimming function further enhances the autonomous operation.
The purpose of the light mast, of course, is to provide light to enable workers to continue working after the sun has gone down. So, in addition to efficiency and environmental friendliness, the high-performance S2+, most importantly, provides excellent visibility, providing a bright, safe and
productive working environment after sunset or in overcast conditions.
This is made possible by Atlas Copco’s innovative LED This is made possible thanks to Atlas Copco’s innovative LED technology. LED mast lenses Atlas Copco’s LED mast lenses have special optics that are designed specifically for the lenses on Atlas Copco’s LED masts have special optics designed specifically for applications in the construction and mining industries. industry. Thanks to this innovative, fully directional LED lens design, Atlas Copco’s engineers Copco engineers have maximized light transmission while reducing “light loss”. “The LEDs have a lifespan of 50,000 The LEDs have a service life of 50,000 hours, which means additional savings in terms of the lifetime of the LEDs is 50,000 hours, resulting in further savings in terms of lower replacement costs and reduced maintenance requirements. maintenance requirements, followed by maximum uptime. uptime and, as a result, productivity,” adds Stanford.
The HiLight S2+ also features the world-renowned quality Atlas Copco’s world-renowned build quality and compact dimensions that make it the machine is easy to transport between jobsites as well as to it can easily be moved around the worksite. In addition, the lighting mast The mast requires minimal maintenance and operates flawlessly at -5°C. operate reliably at temperatures from -5°C to +50°C and operate reliably at great heights reliably at great heights without any derating. without any derating, making it particularly suitable for remote job site. Stanford sums it up: “The Dynamic S2+ combines efficiency, high performance, visibility, flexibility and security. That’s why we highly recommend this LED mast to end users and
rental companies in the construction, mining and mining and oil & gas industries. It is also particularly suitable for noise-sensitive applications, including events and construction work in urban areas,” he concludes
