Allmand, responding to a growing need for assistance in determining the number and placement of portable light towers on a given worksite, has developed an iPad/iPhone application to aid in worksite light tower setup, available free through the Apple IOS App Store. According to the company, it can be used as the basis for setting up 1,000- or 1,250-watt metal halide light towers from almost any manufacturer. The mobile application is designed for those who need to illuminate large areas where portable lighting is required for safety, convenience or productivity. To use this app, simply locate the area to be illuminated on a satellite image. Touch the screen to define the boundaries of the actual area to be illuminated and virtually set up and aim the portable light towers to determine the placement and quantity of the towers, as well as the light configuration that most efficiently lights the worksite to the desired level of illumination, which is measured in foot-candles. After determining the number of towers needed, sales, rental or other specific information may be requested through the app if desired.
