Commenting on the launch, Chicago Pneumatic Light Tower Product Marketing Manager, Sergio Salvador said:Heavy-duty construction means this compact unit is capable of performing in even the most demanding environments. It’s also incredibly easy to use, thanks to a hydraulic mast that provides for quick setup, and a special control panel that simplifies operation and maintenance. Plus, the inclusion of highly-efficient metal halide technology provides for superior lighting performance.”

The CPLT H5 features a vertical mast that extends to a maximum height of 9 m (29.5 ft) and rotates 340º, with hydraulic operation making it fast and easy for operators to position light when and where they need it. The new light tower is powered by a Kubota engine and features four 1000W metal halide lamps, which require less power and provide for a total luminosity of 360,000 lumens.

Significantly, the CPLT H5 is equipped with an easy-to-use and unique digital control panel, called LC 1003. Specifically designed for light towers with lamp sequencing, the LC 1003 controller allows operators to start lamps one by one, which helps avoid the risk of lamp failure and improves reliability. The inclusion of this independent control panel outside the main cubicle allows the operator to start the machine without any contact with the engine, enhancing safety. In addition, the user-friendly CPLT H5 includes lamp failure detection and a weekly timer that can schedule up to 8 lighting events. Other key features include an emergency stop, working mode selector, and IP67 outlet socket.

Thanks to its 110-litre fuel tank, the CPLT H5 is capable of operating for up to 55 hours without refueling, enabling operators to maximise productivity and lighting time. The inclusion of an external fuel filling point means that when the light tower does require refueling the process is easy and straightforward

The CPLT H5 light tower is light and compact, making it easy to transport on a work site, and includes a rugged and heavy duty canopy that features easy-to-access service doors to ensure superior serviceability. As an additional benefit an environmentally-friendly, spillage free, frame design prevents oil, fluids and fuel from leaking out and contaminating the ground.

Additional options available with the CPLT H5 light tower include an external power input (230 VAC), photo cell and remote start, auto lamp shutdown to save fuel, and metal grounding bar.

The new CPLT H5 light tower represents a versatile portable lighting solution for contractors working on construction, mining, and oil and gas industry sites. It is also ideal for use in public lighting applications, such as live sport and other night events, as well as emergency response situations.
