The Magnum MLT4000S solar hybrid light tower features a compact, three-panel solar array that is easily deployed to charge eight on-board batteries. Should daytime weather prevent the solar panels from fully charging the batteries, or if the batteries become depleted during nighttime use, the LP-fueled Generac air-cooled generator will turn on automatically and recharge the batteries until the solar panels can take over. Coupled with a standard seven-day programmable controller, the MLT4000S can operate unmanned for extended periods of time.
The unit’s rugged LED light fixtures offer more than 50,000 hours of operation—five times that of traditional metal halide bulbs. Additionally, unlike metal halide fixtures, the LED light fixtures require no strike or cool-down time during operation; they turn on and off instantly for immediate use of the light tower. Magnum says the LED fixtures are 100% serviceable, with all components readily available and an industry-standard LED chip platform that ensures future sustainability.
The MLT4000S features a vertical mast for rapid deployment. The five-section tubular steel mast can extend to heights between 14ft and 23ft in 30 seconds, compared to two minutes for a traditional mast. Like other Magnum light tower masts, the vertical mast can be rotated 360 degrees from ground level, even when fully extended.
The MLT4000S includes a trailer with a full tubular steel frame, a front step platform for light adjustment, and outriggers to stabilize the unit, even in high winds.
