General Information, Safety and Installation Instructions
The chosen location of your new fitting should allow
for the product to be securely mounted and safely
connected to the mains supply (lighting circuit).
Your new floodlight incorporates a PIR (Passive Infra
Red) sensing device which is sensitive to movement
of warm objects within a preset operating zone and
immediately switches the light on when movement is
When choosing the location for your new fitting,
ensure that the fixings will be anchored in a solid
surface e.g. concrete, brick or a joist—do not fix directly
onto panelling, cladding, plasterboard etc.
This makes this fitting ideal for automatically
illuminating pathways, steps, patios, porches, or
whatever area you have selected to light for reasons
of safety, convenience or security. While there is
movement within range of the unit the light will
remain on.
If the location of your new fitting requires the provision
of a new electrical supply, the supply must conform
with the requirements of the Building Regulations
making reference to the current edition of the IEE
Wiring Regulations (BS7671).
This product is designed for permanent connection to
fixed wiring: this should be either a suitable lighting
circuit (protected with a 5 or 6 Amp MCB or fuse) or a
fused spur (with a 3 Amp fuse) via a fused connection

Check the pack and make sure you have all of the
parts listed on the front of this booklet. If not, contact
the outlet where you bought this product.
We recommend that the supply incorporates a switch
for ease of operation.
This product contains glass, care must be taken when
assembling, fitting or handling to prevent personal
injury or damage to the product.
Make connections to the electrical supply in
accordance with the following code:
Live - Brown or Red
Neutral - Blue or Black
Earth - Green and Yellow
This light fitting must be installed by a competent
person in accordance with the Building Regulations
making reference to the current edition of the IEE
Wiring Regulations (BS7671). The Building Regulations
may be obtained from HMSO or viewed and
downloaded from following
the link for Building Regulations.
When making connections, ensure that the terminals
are tightened securely and that no strands of wire
protrude. Check that the terminals are tightened onto
the bared conductors and not onto any insulation.
As the buyer, installer and/or user of this product it is
your own responsibility to ensure that this fitting is fit
for the purpose for which you have intended it. Eterna
Lighting cannot accept any liability for loss, damage or
premature failure resulting from inappropriate use.
This product must be connected to Earth.
IMPORTANT - Always switch off at the mains before
changing the lamp.
Do not mount on a surface that is likely to vibrate.
If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
For maximum detection area, the light should be
mounted 1.8 to 2.5 meters (6 to 8ft) above the
area (refer Fig.1A). The
floodlight scanning
specifications (approximately 12 meters at 180°) may
vary slightly depending on the mounting height and
The lamps (bulbs/tubes) supplied with this fitting are
consumable parts and therefore may be outside of any
warranty offered.
Switch off the mains before commencing installation
and remove the appropriate
circuit fuse.
When working at heights, please use a suitable
Disconnect the fitting from the electrical supply before
flash or high voltage testing.
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Issue 090714-1PA
This product is suitable for installation on surfaces
with normal flammability e.g. wood, plasterboard, and
masonry. It is not suitable for use on highly flammable
surfaces (e.g. polystyrene, textiles).
Before making fixing hole(s), check that there are no
obstructions hidden beneath the mounting surface
such as pipes or cables.
Installation Instructions and Care
of the washers, it is important to fit them in the
correct order (see Fig. 2)
The detection range of the unit may alter with changes
in ambient temperature.
To avoid damage to the PIR unit, do not aim the
sensor towards the sun.
To avoid nuisance triggering, the sensor should be
directed away from heat sources such as barbecues,
air-conditioners, other outside lighting, moving cars
and flue vents.
Using the fixing strap as a template, mark the
position for the fixing holes on your mounting
4. Prepare your mounting surface as appropriate for
your chosen fixings (not supplied). Use a spirit
level to ensure the fitting will be level.
Do not connect to circuits with other light fittings or
appliances such as large fans, washing machines,
fluorescent lights etc. that may cause false triggering
through spikes generated in the mains supply.
Do not aim towards reflective surfaces such as smooth
white walls, swimming pools, etc.
Before selecting a place to install your floodlight you
should note that movement across the scan area is
more effective than movement directly towards or
away from the sensor (refer Fig.1B). When walking
directly towards or away from the sensor rather
than across, the apparent detection range will be
substantially reduced (refer Fig. 1C).
Secure the strap in place.
Fit the floodlight back onto the fixing strap and
replace the screws.
Before tightening the screws at the ends of the
fixing strap, adjust the position of the floodlight to
give the desired area of illumination.
Tighten the screws to lock your floodlight in
Undo the four screws in the connection box cover
and remove it, take care not to lose any of the
screws or the sealing gasket.
10. Undo the screws and lift off the cable clamp.
11. Undo and remove the cable entry nut and gland.
12. If necessary, pierce the gland making a hole
just large enough for your supply cable to pass
through so that the gland makes a tight seal
around it.
13. Thread your supply cable through the nut and
gland and into the connection box.
14. Make the connections to your mains supply as
described in the “Read this first” section.
Do not attempt to modify the light or PIR sensor unit,
there are no user serviceable parts inside.
15. Replace the cable grip and connection box cover
ensuring that the cable is held securely and the
gasket is correctly positioned.
You are advised at every stage of your installation to
double-check any electrical connections you have
made. After you have completed your installation there
are electrical tests that should be carried out: these
tests are specified in the Wiring Regulations (BS7671)
referred to in the Building Regulations. If in doubt,
consult a qualified electrician.
16. Using a cross-headed screwdriver, undo the
screws that secure the diffuser and allow to hang
17. Fit the fluorescent lamp by pressing straight into
the lampholder.
18. Replace the diffuser and tighten the screws
making sure that the waterproof gasket is correctly
positioned and compressed.

Trouble Shooting & User Hints
Possible Cause
Suggested Solutions
Light does not switch on when
there is movement in the
detection area
1. No mains voltage
2. Bulb - faulty/missing
3. Light nearby is too bright
4. Controls set incorrectly
5. Sensor postioned in wrong direction
• Check all connections, fuses and switches
• Check. Replace
• Redirect sensor or relocate the unit
• Readjust sensor angle or control knob
• Redirect sensor and/or adjust
Lamp switches on for no
apparent reason (false trigger)
1. Heat from lamp body activating sensor
• Adjust PIR sensor or floodlight to allow a
minimum gap 40mm between floodlight
body and sensor head
2. Heat sources i.e; air-con, vents, heater flues,
bbq’s, outside light, moving cars can activate
• Adjust direction of sensor head away from
these sources
3. Animals or birds e.g. possums or domestic
• Redirecting sensor may help
4. Interference from on/off switching of
electric fans, lights on the same circuit as
your security floodlight. (This problem does
not always occur but a faulty switch or noisy
fluorescent light may cause the security
floodlight to switch on
• Should the false triggering become,
troublesome, consider:
(a) Replacing a faulty switch.
(b) Replacing noisy fluorescent tubes/starters
(c) Connecting the floodlight to a separate
circuit (in most cases where one or more
of the above suggestions have been
carried out, false triggering has been
5. Reflection from swimming pool or reflective
• Relocate the fitting
Light remains on
1. Continuously false triggered
2. Time to set too long
• Redirecting sensor head may help
• Reduce time
Light switches on during daylight
1. LUX control knob is set to daylight position
• Turn the LUX control knob to desired light
