Led Garden Lights


Evans Electric

Recommended Posts

Just looking to order some quality garden light fittings for a customer  ...over £1000,s worth .

 

Collingwood  LED  stuff ...looking at the drivers etc........  I notice in their catalogue ...Type of wiring ----  Series .

 

Glad I spotted it TBH  as I had not given that any thought ..and would probably have wired them in parallel before realising .

 

Just launching a warning buoy into the troublesome waters that lap at our feet and dragging us down ................yo Bro ..just launching into a spiritual there :C I think ...... Troublesome waters I'm fearing no more , guiding my boat back safely to shore ...come on Revo sing along !!! :Applaud

fitted some similar a while back. 3 or 4 per driver in series. bit awkward trying to arrange layout etc to suit it

Some of these are step lights , have to drill a 50mm round hole in the brickwork  without breaking the walls up . As you say ,  I'm ordering a driver for 9 fitts in series    then theres ramp lights , pergola lights & spike lights.

IIRC, I believe Collingwood do both series and parallel drivers.

Maybe worth checking.

No problem, had same problem, only I'd already wired them in parallel and had to get wholesaler to reorder driver.

I have to drill 2"   (50mm)  holes in the new garden brickwork  , which is more of a bother ,  I know there are engineering bricks there but hoping the others are just ordinary bricks .  

 

Still , after picking that bag of building sand up last week & pulling a back muscle , I won't be rushing at it just yet TBH

put the core drill through a sheet of wood then use that as a guide to get it to start in the right place. much better using a pilot drill. then use plenty water, should go through fairly easy
