Hella Australia has chosen leading mobile lighting brand Allight as the national roll-out partner for the next generation of its ground-breaking HypaLUME LED floodlights.
The new 240w HypaLUME LED floodlight produces 22,053 effective lumens per lamp, making this range the LED light of choice for Minespec mobile lighting towers following its success in fixed lighting applications and on vehicles.
With each Allight MS-9 mobile lighting tower accommodating eight lamps to produce a market-leading 176,424 lumens, sufficient light is produced for many operating areas of a mine or civil construction project.
Producing up to 50% more light per lamp, HypaLUME LED floodlights will open up the LED space to Allight’s lighter and more portable Metrospec towers.
The huge efficiency and economy gains brought to mining and construction projects are responsible for the success of LED in mobile lighting applications.
Featuring a new Perkins 2 cylinder 500cc water-cooled engine, the Allight MS-9 fitted with HypaLUME lamps needs refuelling only once every three weeks. They also come with extended 500 hour service intervals and deliver an 18t annual carbon footprint reduction compared with standard metal halide lamps.
The engineering, procurement and supply chain alliance between HELLA and Allight has raised the bar in terms of mine efficiency and productivity.
Full scale production of the Allight MS-9 LED towers got underway in July following exhaustive testing in tough mining environments. Pre-launch demand forecasts indicate that around 500 MineSpec towers will be needed to meet the first wave of demand, and will increase when the new generation of HypaLUME opens up the construction and municipality sectors.
