Round Bollard LED Light Problem Possible Causes

Possible Causes
Possible Solutions
Lights do not operate.
No power.
Blown fuse.
Low voltage cable has not been connected to
Ensure transformer is plugged in and power is on.
(Is the power point working?)
Replace fuse. (Note: some transformers may not be
fitted with fuse).
Ensure the low voltage cable is connected to the
transformer. (Is the connection firm?)
Lights do not switch on at dusk when using either
the “Dusk Till Dawn” or “Timer” mode. (Daylight
Sensor/Timer transformers only, or when using
separate Time/Light Sensor, LVT).
Artificial light affecting Timer/Light Sensor (ie,
street lights, car lights, etc).
Timer/Light Sensor
Mount Timer/Light Sensor in a position where
artificial lights do not affect its operation. To check
light sensor: ensure switch is in either “Dusk Till
Dawn” or “Timer Hour” position, cover sensor lens
with black PVC tape (ensuring that no light gets
in). The lights should switch on after a few seconds.
If the lights have now switched on, the light sensor
may simply require mounting in a position where
artificial light cannot affect its operation.
Only some of the lights switch on.
Connecting pins in cable connector have not
penetrated into cable.
Globe not pressed into globe socket correctly.
Globe blown.
Straighten pins with pliers then reconnect.
Ensure globe is pushed firmly into position.
Replace globe.
Light stays on for longer period than the timer
suggests. Daylight Sensor/Timer transformers only,
or when using separate Time/Light Sensor, LVT
If the Timer/Light Sensor detects a light source
(porch light, car light etc) during the time in which
the garden lights are on, the transformer will switch
the garden lights off and then re-start the preprogrammed time again when the light has passed.
Mount Timer/Light Sensor in a position where
artificial light cannot affect its operation.

IMPORTANT: Low voltage cable is
NOT to be used for 240 volt wiring.
6. Fit the cable from the light into the
narrower slot of the connector,
keeping the cable straight, push it
down onto the two spiked pins (Fig.2).
7. Fit the connector to the main garden
lighting cable at the chosen position
by placing the garden lighting cable in
the larger slot of the cable connector.
Push it down on to the two spiked
pins (Fig.3).
8. Refit the cover of the cable connector
and tighten all three screws.
9. The garden light should now illuminate.
If the light does not illuminate, see
section headed “Trouble Shooting and
User Hints”
Each of the LVG511 presents a 1.5 watt
load on the transformer.
Precaution should be taken so as to make
sure that the sums of the light wattages
of your garden lights not exceed the
wattage or VA) rating of the transformer.
For example, a 24 watt transformer
running three 4 watt bulbs could also
accept up to eight of theses LVG 511
ie ( 3x4watt) + (8x1.5 watt) = 24 watts
NOTE: Cable lengths greater than 18
metres may cause a small reduction in
brightness to the lights furthest away
from the transformer.
1. If you are adding lights to your existing
garden lighting plan, first check that
the transformer is powerful enough to
illuminate lights.

2. Additional cable can be joined to
existing cable either at the end of the
length, or joined anywhere along the
cable using an Arlec Cable Connector
LV700. Arlec low voltage cable is
completely weatherproof and may be
used above or below ground.
3. Lay low voltage cable out in position in
readiness for connecting lights.
4. Plug the transformer into a household
powerpoint and switch “ON”.
This will enable you to check light
connections during installation.
This operation is completely safe
because the wiring is only carrying a
low 12volt.
5. Open the cable connector provided
by unscrewing the top cover of the
Do not remove the insulating strip
from the middle slot (Fig.1).

1. Ensure that the wattage of the
transformer is greater than the total
wattage of lights.
For example, a 42 watt transformer is
capable of supplying max 42 watts of
lightning. If sixteen LVG511 lamps are
to be installed (16 x 1.5= 24 Watts),
18Watts of lighting remains, which
would accommodate three garden
lights of 6 watts each, but only four,
4 watt lights could be connected.
2. If possible avoid cable runs of more
than 18 metres, as reduced brightness
may occur, and definitely no more
than 32 metres. In larger systems, or
where the total wattage is over 50
watts, split the lighting into two cable
runs, where each cable comes back to
be fed by the transformer.
This will ensure better power
distribution and globe brightness.
