Elipta Compact Bollard spike mounted Light - Black - 12v G4 - IP66 - 270mm height


Thanks to popular demand we can now boast having a 12v bollard on the website and to keep the garden installation to 12v only.

The Elipta compact bollard spike light Uses a 2w, 3w or 4w cap LED lamp and this fitting is recommended for driveway and path lighting, especially if timer-operated for long periods. This minimises energy consumption and lamp replacement. This bollard light is supplied as standard with a 200mm finned spike for installation in soil and gravel. The height is 270mm and diameter 60mm. 

Pre-wired with 2m rubber cable. 

12v fittings will require 12v transformers to power them and to regulate the voltage from the mains 220-240v to 12v using the transformer.

You can of course use one transformer to power a number of fittings and this will be based on the total wattage of the LED lamps used.  For example 4 x fittings using 4w LED bulbs = 16w  and a 20w (20va) transformer will suffice.

The colour finish is Black powder coated aluminium and ideal for garden settings. Machined from solid metal tubing with stainless steel spike. Polycarbonate diffuser is framed by top cap and screw on base ring which allows the top to be unscrewed for easy lamp replacement. The fitting comes pre-wired with 2m of rubber cable. This fitting can be connected with cable joint kits (code T9962), cable splice kits (code T9963), a junction box or a T9969 underground joint kit. 

The fitting is rated at IP66.  Ensure soil is loose enough for spiking into the ground.  Forcing the spike into hard soil may damage the fitting. 

The fitting has a 2 year warranty. 




Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

                                                           
                                                                

The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS incandescent bulb in the home would be 2,700 kelvins which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum.

Installation 12v

Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation you must also think of where that product will be used and how it will be installed. All exterior lighting products on our web site have an IP rating appropriate to each light fitting and its intended application and is therefore fit for purpose. Water ingress is the enemy for outdoor lighting and the products supplied are only as good as the installation. The weakest point is always cable joints. All joints must be made 100% watertight and this can be done using IP68 cable connectors and/or waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a re-enterable liquid gel mix. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay-based soil areas. If possible, use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.  Care must be taken with the cable runs and not to install transformers more than 30 metres away from the furthest fitting to avoid any voltage drop. Cabling should be 2 core Rubber HO5RN-F or HO7RN-F and not PVC. PVC leads to capillary action over time especially with UV degradation. Always check the correct type of transformer you need for your fittings. We recommend wiring in parallel with Toroidal AC and LED DC drivers. But when using Milliamp mA LED drivers, they should always be wired in series. Plug and Play kits are simply a case of daisy chaining the fittings via plug and play junction boxes, connectors and extension cables using a 2-pin plug arrangement. These Plug and Play fittings should only be used for small domestic projects due to voltage drop over 5 metres.

All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
