What is ‘remote PIR’?
Many customers have asked us to make a solar security light that has a separate PIR motion sensor giving greater freedom of positioning. The Astron motion sensor comes with 20cm of cable which enables it to be neatly mounted close to the light. Also in the box is a 1m PIR extension cable so you can locate the PIR motion sensor up to 1.2m away from the light unit should you wish.
How waterproof is it?
The Astron64 Solar Security Light is IP56 rated.
Waterproofing is rated by the IP (International Protection) system which consists of the letters IP followed by two digits. The first digit after IP ranks a products protection against solid objects. The second digit after the IP rates a products ability to protect against liquids.
The Astron Solar Floodlight is IP56 rated making it our most waterproof light yet. IP56 means the Astron is protected against dust – limited ingress (no harmful deposit) and protected against strong jets of water e.g. for use on shipdecks – limited ingress permitted.
What is the difference between the Astron64 and the Astron Solar Floodlight?
There are 4 key differences between the two lights.
The Astron64 is a motion sensor activated light which only comes on when it detects motion. The Astron Solar Floodlight stays on constantly for up to 12 hours a night and is operated by remote control.
2. Battery capacity
Because the Astron64 only comes on when it detects motion, it doesn’t need a battery as big as the battery in the Astron Solar Floodlight. The battery in the Astron Solar Floodlight is 4 times larger than the battery in the Astron64.
3. Solar panel power
Because the Astron64 only comes on when it detects motion, it doesn’t need a solar panel as big as the solar panel that comes with the Astron Solar Floodlight. The solar panel that comes with the Astron Solar Floodlight is 4 times larger than the solar panel that comes with the Astron64.
The Astron64 has 64 LED bulbs wheras the Astron Solar Floodlight has 45 LED bulbs. The Astron64 is 30% brighter than the Astron Solar Floodlight, but it can not operate for anywhere near as long.
