What is a remote motion sensor?
Many customers have asked us to make a solar security light that has a separate PIR motion sensor giving greater freedom of positioning. The Astron64 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.

What is a digital motion sensor and why is it better?
Our state-of-the-art digital sensor offers greater accuracy when setting your motion sensor. Digital sensors also offer superior waterproofing because they don't use dials which are more susceptible to water ingress. The digital motion sensor on the Astron64 has two settings, Time and Lux. Time controls the amount of time your light stays on for each time motion is detected and Lux determines how dark it needs to get before your light will start activating.

The Time setting has a range of between 0 and 9
0 = 3 seconds, 1 = 30 seconds, 2 = 60 seconds, 3 = 90 seconds, 4 = 120 seconds, 5 = 180 seconds, 6 = 240 seconds, 7 = 360 seconds, 8 = 480 seconds and 9 = 600 seconds.

The Lux setting has a range of 1 – 4
1 = 5 Lux, 2 = 15 Lux, 3 = 35 Lux, 4 = 60 Lux

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.

1. Function
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.

4. Brightness

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.

Please confirm the brightness in lumens? (And, is it really equivalent to a 150-watt HALOGEN light?) Thank you!
By Shari Barber-Bailey on Nov 26, 2015
It is 275 lumens. The equivalent to a 150w halogen light. You'd be surprised how bright it is.

Can the batteries be replaced and what do they cost
By [email protected] on Nov 24, 2015
The batteries can be replaced. They should last at least 2 years. A new battery usually costs around £30 but needs a special quotation so always contact the office.
