Self propelled lighting tower - 4QD - Electric Motor Control

Self propelled lighting tower

A long, hard day in the workshop saw us get the prototype drive system for this self propelled lighting tower up and running.

It’s got 2 x  48v 2.2kW Leeson motors which we’re driving using 2 of our Pro-150 controllers. These were configured for push button operation with variable speed.

It turned out to be a real beast – hugely torqey and easily capable of a brisk jogging speed. Our customer is targetting this at railway, highway, and runway maintenance operations.
