The Elipta Modula (green) is a stylish 240v recessed uplight which takes a choice of 3w - 8w GU10 LED lamps. LED lamps also result in a much lower lens temperature, which is important in walkover areas. This Modula is fitted with a flush lens as standard and the light is located by an "O" ring on the body into a sleeve tube. To facilitate removal of screws for future relamping or other maintenance, apply copper grease to the threads of all screws being fitted for retention of bezels, grills or other top plates or retaining rings.
Copper grease resists degradation due to heat and protects against difficulty in removing screws, particularly where stainless steel screws are fitted with aluminium parts. It may also be used on screw threads of screw-off bezels or glare shields. Ensure surplus is cleaned off with a solvent to prevent staining in use.
|Colour/Finish:||Powder Coated Green blends well in lawns|
|Construction:||Front bezel is attached to tubular aluminium body. 2m cable via rear entry cable gland|
|Lamp Type:||240v GU10 halogen, long-life energy-saving compact fluorescent and 3w or 5w l.e.d. lamps; 50,000 life and low energy consumption make these a popular option. l.e.d. and fluorescent lamps also result in a much lower lens temperature, which is important in walkover areas.|
The plastic sleeve is built in during construction or retrofitted into a hole cut with a coring bit: the light pushes into the tube, where it is held firmly in place by an o-ring.
Using a single RCD for large numbers of 240v fittings is not recommended due to the risk of nuisance tripping. We advise the use of separate RCD protection for each circuit and a maximum of 12 fittings per RCD. Where a garden lighting installation of more than 12 spike mount or recessed lights per circuit is proposed, we suggest the installation of 12v units with transformers, which results in a significantly higher fault tolerance and reliability in the total installation
