The FC lighting system consists of two trailer-mounted light towers which are stowed in two 20 ft ISO containers.
Each light tower is powered by a 6 KW diesel generator and supports four metal-halide lamps. Each lamp delivers
1000 watts of light intensity. Lamps are a high pressure sodium with a NEMA 6 design for large area coverage. The
aluminum reflector housings have tempered impact resistant glass lenses. The lamps come with weather resistant
twist-lock connections for connecting floodlights to the light tower.
The light tower is a three-section telescoping mast which extends from 12 ft to 30 ft and has a rotation range of
360o with a position lock. The mast is easily extended with dual hand-operated winches that incorporate an automatic
safety brake. The tower retracts and stows horizontally for travel.
The light system comes with a 30 gallon translucent polyethylene fuel tank, single point lifting bail, forklift slots,
heavy-duty outriggers, leveling indicator and removable drawbar. The control panel comes with one Ground Fault

switches, and a non-resettable hour meter to track records for periodic maintenance.
The overall length is (in./cm) 174/442, width is (in./cm) 79/201, height is (in./cm) 89/226 (travel position), standard
tower height (ft/M) 30/9 and shipping weight is (lb/kg) 2010/912.
LIFE RING STANCHIONS AND LIFE RINGS
Life ring stanchions are installed in turn-tube fittings of the section modules. Life rings, nylon rope and strobe lights
are installed on the inboard side of the life ring stanchions.
