( requires transformer )
12v LED/Halogen G4 Garden Floodlight with Ground Spike
The Charleston Cobra 12V Floodlight with Clear Lens is ideal for subtly illuminating smaller areas of the garden or to uplight statues, plants or trees. The head has an anti-glare shield and can be adjusted and angled in various positions over 180º by loosening and tightening the serrated clamp joint. It is designed to house a replaceable G4 halogen bulb or LED Capsule, which is accessible by removing the face of the fitting. We recommend the use of a LED G4 as this will have a much longer life span than a halogen equivalent, and will also use less energy . Lumena G4 LED capsules will work with a normal 12v AC transformer so no need for a special DC LED driver. Inside the head is a highly polished reflector to maximize light output.
This low voltage, solid brass flood light is supplied complete with 1.5m of 2 core cable and a 4 fin polycarbonate ground spike with anchor for easy mounting into soft ground such as grass or flower beds.
88% Typical energy savings using LED lamps
Low voltage is the safer option in the garden due to the ground being dug etc. You
will need to use a transformer which matches the lamp voltage, for example if you
had 6 fittings each with a MR16 35w lamp that would be 6 x 35w = 210 watts so you
would need a transformer that was about 250 va as you need some spare capacity on
it to function correctly. Standard MR16 low voltage lamps can use either an electronic
or standard toroidal type transformer but if you decide to use LED lamps then they
work best on the toroidal type transformer.
We recommend you use the heat shrink kits for cable jointing and also waterproof
enclosures with the hard setting resin compound to minimise the risk of water ingress.
Please try and make all terminations above ground where there is less chance of
water ingress. All installations should be done by a NIC EIC electrical contractor
to ensure a safe and 100% water tight installation. Waterproof joint kits and boxes
are available from our web site.
