We have analysed the LT9 in two of the most common configurations, two-way and one-way lighting. One-way lighting is where all four lights are positioned to bathe light in the same direction, and two-way is where each pair of lights is positioned outwards to shed the most light over the widest area, with the tower being in the centre of the light.

Using advanced computer software to analyse the light patterns created, we have set up a few scenes showing how 6,4, and 2 lighting towers could be used in different applications.

One Way Lighting

Two Way Lighting

The JCB LT9 is equipped with four 1000W Metal Halide bulbs, which are detailed below. The tables at the bottom of this page show the areas lit to the given luminosities or higher.

The two main configurations have different uses: one-way configuration is used to point light in one direction and two-way configuration is useful for general lighting applications such as car parks, or construction sites.

Above, to the left is one-way, and on the right is two-way lighting. The lines are marked with the Lux level which can be expected within each drawn area as a minimum value.

You will see that many competitors quote lighting figures of ‘4200m2 at 20 lux average’ and similar figures. This means that over an area of 4200m2, or 65m x 65m, the average intensity of the light is 20 lux. So, at the outer corners, the light intensity could be 4 or 5 lux, and in the centre of the area it may be 180 lux or higher. We provide the area which is lit to 20 lux, not an average figure, as you may otherwise be expecting your tower to cover a wider area at 20 lux to enable workers can carry out roadworks, only to find that they can’t complete this task safely or accurately, making mistakes and causing danger.

Road Application

Below is an example of how you could use two or more lights in the One-Way configuration to light a road (if the street lights are inoperable, for example). The image shows how four lights could be arranged, but if we analyse just the central pair, we have measured that they can light 100m of the road together. Each of our lights can light 50m of road to at least 20 Lux, when only 5 lux is required. This ensures safety, especially if the road is being lit because of roadworks, as extra obstacles such as traffic cones and other construction materials can be an extra hazard for drivers. If these hazards were not present, then you can safely light the road to just 5 lux, meaning our towers will stretch even further along your length of road.

Car Park Application

Six of our lighting towers can sufficiently light a car park area of 15750m2.
This size car park can hold about 620 cars, allowing for gaps where the lighting towers are positioned.
