Floodlight 24W Compact Fluorescent Lamp
General Information, Safety and Installation Instructions Introduction
The chosen location of your new ﬁtting should allow for the product to be securely mounted and safely connected to the mains supply (lighting circuit).
Your new ﬂoodlight incorporates a PIR (Passive Infra Red) sensing device which is sensitive to movement of warm objects within a preset operating zone and immediately switches the light on when movement is detected.
When choosing the location for your new ﬁtting, ensure that the ﬁxings will be anchored in a solid surface e.g. concrete, brick or a joist—do not ﬁx directly onto panelling, cladding, plasterboard etc.
This makes this ﬁtting ideal for automatically illuminating pathways, steps, patios, porches, or whatever area you have selected to light for reasons of safety, convenience or security. While there is movement within range of the unit the light will remain on.
If the location of your new ﬁtting requires the provision of a new electrical supply, the supply must conform with the requirements of the Building Regulations making reference to the current edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS7671). This product is designed for permanent connection to ﬁxed wiring: this should be either a suitable lighting circuit (protected with a 5 or 6 Amp MCB or fuse) or a fused spur (with a 3 Amp fuse) via a fused connection unit.

If in any doubt, consult a qualiﬁed electrician. TIME SENS
For maximum detection area, the light should be mounted 1.8 to 2.5 meters (6 to 8ft) above the �������������� ������������� detection area (refer Fig.1A). The ﬂoodlight scanning speciﬁcations (approximately 12 meters at 180°) may vary slightly depending on the mounting height and location.
The lamps (bulbs/tubes) supplied with this ﬁtting are consumable parts and therefore may be outside of any warranty offered. Switch off the mains before commencing installation ������������������� and remove the appropriate circuit fuse. When working at heights, please use a suitable platform. Disconnect the ﬁtting from the electrical supply before ﬂash or high voltage testing. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
This product is suitable for installation on surfaces with normal ﬂammability e.g. wood, plasterboard, and masonry. It is not suitable for use on highly ﬂammable surfaces (e.g. polystyrene, textiles).
���� ��������� ������
Before making ﬁxing hole(s), check that there are no obstructions hidden beneath the mounting surface such as pipes or cables.
Installation Instructions and Care of the washers, it is important to ﬁt them in the correct order (see Fig. 2)
The detection range of the unit may alter with changes in ambient temperature. To avoid damage to the PIR unit, do not aim the sensor towards the sun.
To avoid nuisance triggering, the sensor should be directed away from heat sources such as barbecues, air-conditioners, other outside lighting, moving cars and ﬂue vents.
Using the ﬁxing strap as a template, mark the position for the ﬁxing holes on your mounting surface.
4. Prepare your mounting surface as appropriate for your chosen ﬁxings (not supplied). Use a spirit level to ensure the ﬁtting will be level.
Do not connect to circuits with other light ﬁttings or appliances such as large fans, washing machines, ﬂuorescent lights etc. that may cause false triggering through spikes generated in the mains supply.
Do not aim towards reﬂective surfaces such as smooth white walls, swimming pools, etc. Before selecting a place to install your ﬂoodlight you should note that movement across the scan area is more effective than movement directly towards or away from the sensor (refer Fig.1B). When walking directly towards or away from the sensor rather than across, the apparent detection range will be substantially reduced (refer Fig. 1C).
Secure the strap in place.
Fit the ﬂoodlight back onto the ﬁxing strap and replace the screws.
Before tightening the screws at the ends of the ﬁxing strap, adjust the position of the ﬂoodlight to give the desired area of illumination.
Tighten the screws to lock your ﬂoodlight in position.
Undo the four screws in the connection box cover and remove it, take care not to lose any of the screws or the sealing gasket.
10. Undo the screws and lift off the cable clamp. 11. Undo and remove the cable entry nut and gland. 12. If necessary, pierce the gland making a hole just large enough for your supply cable to pass through so that the gland makes a tight seal around it. 13. Thread your supply cable through the nut and gland and into the connection box.
14. Make the connections to your mains supply as described in the “Read this ﬁrst” section.
Do not attempt to modify the light or PIR sensor unit, there are no user serviceable parts inside.
15. Replace the cable grip and connection box cover ensuring that the cable is held securely and the gasket is correctly positioned.
You are advised at every stage of your installation to double-check any electrical connections you have made. After you have completed your installation there are electrical tests that should be carried out: these tests are speciﬁed in the Wiring Regulations (BS7671) referred to in the Building Regulations. If in doubt, consult a qualiﬁed electrician.
16. Using a cross-headed screwdriver, undo the screws that secure the diffuser and allow to hang down. 17. Fit the ﬂuorescent lamp by pressing straight into the lampholder. 18. Replace the diffuser and tighten the screws making sure that the waterproof gasket is correctly positioned and compressed.
Choose the location for your new ﬂoodlight giving ��������� consideration to all of the conditions listed above.

Trouble Shooting & User Hints Problem
Light does not switch on when there is movement in the detection area
1. No mains voltage 2. Bulb - faulty/missing 3. Light nearby is too bright 4. Controls set incorrectly 5. Sensor postioned in wrong direction
• Check all connections, fuses and switches • Check. Replace • Redirect sensor or relocate the unit • Readjust sensor angle or control knob • Redirect sensor and/or adjust
Lamp switches on for no apparent reason (false trigger)
1. Heat from lamp body activating sensor
• Adjust PIR sensor or ﬂoodlight to allow a minimum gap 40mm between ﬂoodlight body and sensor head
2. Heat sources i.e; air-con, vents, heater ﬂues, bbq’s, outside light, moving cars can activate sensor
• Adjust direction of sensor head away from these sources
3. Animals or birds e.g. possums or domestic animals
• Redirecting sensor may help
4. Interference from on/off switching of electric fans, lights on the same circuit as your security ﬂoodlight. (This problem does not always occur but a faulty switch or noisy ﬂuorescent light may cause the security ﬂoodlight to switch on
• Should the false triggering become, troublesome, consider: (a) Replacing a faulty switch. (b) Replacing noisy ﬂuorescent tubes/starters (c) Connecting the ﬂoodlight to a separate circuit (in most cases where one or more of the above suggestions have been carried out, false triggering has been reduced)
5. Reﬂection from swimming pool or reﬂective surface
• Relocate the ﬁtting
Light remains on
1. Continuously false triggered 2. Time to set too long
• Redirecting sensor head may help • Reduce time
Light switches on during daylight hours
1. LUX control knob is set to daylight position
• Turn the LUX control knob to desired light level setting
When setting lux controls in daylight the detection distance becomes shorter
1. Interference by sunlight
• Re-test at night
Note: All passive infra red detectors are more sensitive in cold and dry weather than warm and wet weather. 5
