Cobra, 12 Volt, Floodlight, Brass, IP54, 4w LED

( 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 180ยบ 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.
