The Solar Bulkhead PIR (Passive Infra Red) Lighting Kit is ideally suited for locations that are frequently used, that require lighting during the dark hours, but do not have easy access to mains electricity. The system is movement activated (to make the battery last longer) and the perfect source of lighting for places such as pub smoking areas, public toilets, bus stops, yards etc.

Utility lighting with no utility bill

The Solar bulkhead Lighting Kit has a high power light unit with a brightness equivalent to a 45 Watt bulb but actually using a 9 Watt energy saving bulkhead light fitting. The bulb is powered by a 12 Amp hour sealed solar battery (supplied) which sits in a waterproof battery enclosure. The battery is charged by a 5 Wp solar panel via a charge controller to avoid over charging.

The kit is supplied ready assembled. All that the user needs to do is to wire the bulk head light to the control box. Using the included 10 metres of cable the light unit can be mounted remotely from the control box in order that it is out of sight or so that the solar panel is located best for direct sunshine (see image below).

The Solar Bulkhead Lighting Kit includes an all weather PIR (Passive Infra Red) sensor which is mounted remotely on the control box for security. It can be adjusted for sensitivity and time.
