Larson Electronics has unveiled a solar-powered LED surveillance tower with backup power capacity.
The US-based industrial lighting firm said the entire tower assembly, which includes a 7kW 4-stroke OHV single cylinder engine backup generator with a forced air cooling system that runs on gas, is mounted on a single-axle trailer suitable for reaching “remote and rugged locations”.
The tower features a camera, two 265-watt solar panels, a 500aH capacity battery bank, 120V battery charger and telescopic mast, “provides a safe and effective way for operators to monitor locations from elevated positions”, Larson said.
“Rounding out this security solution is a NEMA 3R component control box with a component cooling system and a 7kW 4-stroke OHV single cylinder engine backup generator,” the company said. “The generator has a keyless electric start and automatically kicks in when battery voltage falls below 12 volts.”
Larson CEO Rob Bresnahan said the entire system “provides operators with an effective monitoring system for temporary and outdoor jobs”.
