The Saturn Globe Pedestal Light is a high quality, decorative gate post light with a rounded base. The position of the photocell is in the base of the bright 9w bulb, and acts as an automatic dusk to dawn sensor. This turns the light on during darkness and off again in daylight. Also, this saves a huge amount of energy with little running costs (approx. £5-6 per year for an 9W lamp).
A bright white, acrylic globe screws into the matte black aluminium base. The frame surrounding the globe creates 8 stylish curved segments evenly spread around it’s lower half. This creates an unusual, eye catching appearance. Furthermore, the contrast of the black and white gives the light a classic, traditional feel. The globe completely conceals the bulb; once illuminated the result is a simple glowing globe. This Globe Pedestal Light looks fantastic on top of gate posts or on small walls, especially either side of entrances.
The LED light sensor bulb has an in-built photocell. This automatically turns the bulb on at dusk and off again in the morning, therefore the light will not remain on during the daytime. It is constructed with an Ultrasonic Integration Shell (omni-directional), and a sensor is located on both sides of the bulb for optimum performance. The LED has a high lumen output of 810 lm, equivalent to a 100W incandescent. It saves up to 90% of energy traditionally consumed.
The bulb supplied is daylight white.
Environmentally Friendly – Generates less heat and low carbon emission
FOR USE IN OUTDOOR FITTINGS ONLY – Unsuitable for dimming circuits
1/. The light levels that switch the bulb off and on, are factory preset and cannot be changed.
2/. There is a built in delay before darkness turns the bulb on. This is to prevent the bulb from turning off and on constantly .To test the bulbs in daylight it is necessary to totally cover the light with a dark cloth. Simply covering the sensor will not turn the bulb on.

“Dusk to Dawn” or “Photocell” Lighting
What is a “dusk to dawn” or “Photocell” light? A photocell is a light sensitive electronic switch. In simple terms it senses the brightness of light, and at Dusk when the light level reduces it switches the light on, and at Dawn when the light level increases again it switches the light off. Hence there is no need for a timer, and it means that no energy is wasted by lights being on in daylight.
There is normally a delay of several seconds built into the photocells to stop then turning off and on in error, for example, a passing car headlight could turn them on if the photocell were to react instantly.
