Remote Area Lighting Systems

Capabilities and features

The RALS is a self-contained, skid mounted, fully enclosed transportable area lighting system. The RALS takes a 3-phase, 120/208VAC input from a standard 60-amp MS90555 connector to supply up to thirteen included light fixtures. The RALS has a fixture that attaches to the main unit itself, and two separate loops for the remaining twelve fixtures. Each loop is comprised of two (2) 375-foot cable assemblies, with six (6) 150-watt, high pressure sodium, floodlight lighting fixtures per loop, or 120-watt, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), floodlight lighting fixtures per loop.

The fixtures are extendable up to a 15-foot height and have anchor stakes for secure mounting. The RALS uses photocell light sensing for automatic day-night off-on operation with a manual override. The RALS conforms to NEC for outdoor use.

Design and construction

The RALS can be used in all military environments where area lighting is needed. The RALS set can be installed anywhere 3-phase, 120/208VAC is available. It can operate from -25F to 120F and meet all military requirements for humidity, sand, dust, salt spray, fungus, and altitude. The RALS has build in forklift provisions for transporting.
