This is a 12v dc 5 Amp Photocell for switching items on during the night and off during the day.
This 12 Volt dc 5 amp dusk to dawn photocell lighting switch manufactured in the UK by Acetek has been designed to be fitted in to panels or light fittings offering a waterproof seal by way of 2 securing clamp nuts and a neoprene gasket. The rear housing is compact measuring (58L x 31W x 26D) and requires a 20mm mounting hole. The unit is constructed from polycarbonate with 300mm long high temperature PVC cables. The switching component of this sensor is a long life relay with Silver-Tin-Oxide contacts that switches on at light levels of 50Lux and off 80Lux. The placement of light sensing equipment it crucial to the correct operation of the device and must not be influenced by the light it has switched as this will feed back to the sensor and cause a flashing effect. Will operate filament, low energy and LED lamps.
