A new LightSource.

Doosan Infracore Portable Power (DIPP) has updated its Ingersoll Rand LightSource light tower, one of three models DIPP produces ranging from 6 to 8 kW. The LightSource light tower now features new light fixtures, improving its lighting output and distribution, and meeting lighting standards for road and bridge construction, general construction, mining and drilling, rental, special events, sporting events and disaster relief.

The LightSource light tower has an output of 6 kW, powered by a Tier 4 1.1 L three-cylinder Kubota D1105-E3BG diesel engine rated 13.6 hp at 1800 rpm. The engine is mated to a brushless, single-phase Mecc Alte alternator producing an output of 6 kW at 60 Hz, powering the floodlights and allowing for electrical tools to be powered by the light tower.


Four 1000 W, metal-halide flood-lights provide power for up to 52 hours of continuous operation, said DIPP. The new lights are designed to provide a NEMA 6x7 beam spread, improving the light distribution and coverage.

The new fixture design incorporates a side-mounted, horizontally positioned bulb in each rectangular flood-light. The new arrangement provides broader light distribution, which D1PP said is a 16% improvement over previous models.

Each bulb is placed in a cast-aluminum fixture housing that includes a separate reflector to lower the risk of disruptive light distribution. The fixtures also have a smaller footprint for reduced wind load.

DIPP engineered the LightSource light tower with a heavy-duty galvanized steel tower with a three-section mast that extends from 12 to 30 ft. The mast is raised and lowered by dual, hand-operated winches. An electric winch is offered as an option.

When the light tower is at full mast and with all four outriggers secured, DIPP said the unit can withstand winds up to 65 mph. The tower is designed to be rotated 360[degrees], allowing the floodlights to be aimed in any direction.

The control panel on the light tower includes individual lamp switches, GFI-protected 120 V 15 Amp duplex, standard, 240 V 20 Amp twist-lock receptacles, key-switch ignition and an hourmeter. A low fuel level indicator light can be added as an option.

A combo hitch allows the LightSource light tower to be towed. It also features a two-light towing package, side markers and reflectors to meet U.S. Federal and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. For travel and storage, a patented system automatically locks the tower into place when in the horizontal position.

The light tower also includes a 27 gal. fuel tank and is designed to CSA requirements for sale in Canada. Working weight on the unit is 1940 lb.

DIPP produces the LightSource light tower in Statesville, N.C., where production began in the second quarter of this year.
