Prolectric unveils solar hybrid lighting tower

UK-based renewable lighting and power specialist Prolectric has launched a solar hybrid lighting tower.

The ProRXM Hybrid, which officially launched at the Executive Hire Show in Coventry this week, is described as a “solar first solution” that offers a backup option via traditional diesel power. 

The unit is fully powered by three 270W solar panels with 8kWh of usable battery bank storage, while a DC 2.8kW generator utilises 0.5 litres per hour.

The generator starts up automatically when power demands exceed the battery charge.

Four multi-directional 180W LED lights on a 360° pan motor rotatable hydraulic mast can be dimmed, monitored, and scheduled remotely thanks to the company’s remote monitoring and reporting software.

Currently available on desktop, the company is working on an app version of the platform. Meanwhile, it is fitted with a GPS tracker and can look back at 10 years worth of weather data to predict solar performance.

For safety, an automatic mast safety system is also included.

Prolectric said the unit is designed for road and trackside use and can operate all year-round as a replacement to diesel-powered alternatives.

Speaking to IRN at the show, Prolectric said the unit is designed to meet market demand for a hybrid product, and represents its first move into the hybrid space having previously launched three solar only units. 

IRN was also told that the company is working on a five panel model, with early indicators suggesting a launch at some point this year.
