power plug. For your protection, ALWAYS complete the  
grounding path. never insert the AC power plug into a  
2-prong receptacle to operate lighting system.  
Caution  
When applying power to the lighting system, ALWAYS  
connect the AC power plug to a 3-prong receptacle that  
is grounded. The possibility exists of electrical shock,  
electrocution and even death if the lighting system is  
not grounded.  
ALWAYS keep the balloon away from sharp objects and  
excessive amounts of heat.

general information  
The Multiquip GBC/GBCE Lighting System is a general  
purpose floodlight tower intended for emergency and  
remote lighting needs. It is universally adaptable to all AC  
power supplies and accepts 50/60 Hz, 100-240 V.  
The GBC/GBCE uses a single 1,000 watt lamp with pure  
white light for maximum illumination with a light coverage  
of up to 150 feet. The standard balloon (GBP) that comes  
with the GBC/GBCE provides 360° glarefree illumination.  
The balloon is self-inflating and easy to install and inflate  
in less than 20 seconds.  
The GBC/GBCE has a three-stage mast that extends to  
a height of up to 12 feet. It has a steerable cart design for  
easy transportation. Three outriggers on the cart ensures  
great stabilization. (GBCE includes an additional 35-inch  
extension pole).  
The GBC/GBCE can be powered by a variety of Multiquip's  
series generators with an output power of 1.7 kW or  
greater.  
If an extension cord is necessary to connect to a power  
source, refer to Table 3 to select the proper length.
