2 X 2 Channel Starter Kit: Handset - Wall Switch - Two 2 Channel Controllers


The Light Symphony 2 x 2 Channel Handset Starter Kit comprises two 2 Channel 2KW Lighting Control Unit, one handset and one wall switch. Each channel is fully rated for an inductive load for remote control of fluorescent outdoor lighting, low voltage garden lighting or metal halide exterior lighting without de-rating. The two controllers can be installed in different locations and powered from different sources, making it ideal for systems where two distinct areas are to be controlled: an example would be use of one controller for the rear garden and one for the front garden, controlled from one handset and one wall switch. 

The RF remote handset provides complete and simple control over an entire lighting scheme with a 1000 metre "line-of-sight" walk-about range. It is simple to use, and its splash-proof, easy clean, brushed aluminium effect keypad lends itself to outdoor life. Any number of handsets can be used together. 16 ''system-codes'' are selectable to avoid interference with neighbouring systems. The handset employs the very latest narrow-band FM radio technology to achieve a best-in-class wireless range while achieving superb rejection to interference. The handset is also a commissioning tool, providing ''lid-on'' programming of other Light Symphony components

The Lighting Control Unit provides 2 wirelessly controllable outputs each rated at 1000W and suitable for all load types. It provides flexible control for any lighting circuit or pump and is quickly configurable as a simple switch, group (zone) or scene controller, with 9 memories and a master on/off. Output 1 can be programmed as a switched or dimmable output. Output 2 is switched only. The dimming mode provides a soft-on, soft-off feature with filament pre-heating, which can greatly increases lamp life.The separately fused outputs are fully protected against over current and over temperature. Large 10mm? cable terminations, standard (20mm) gland cut-outs and an earth bonded gland-chassis simplify installation.The built-in signal-strength indicator, zero-volt mains switching and power-on surge protection all enhance reliability. Lid-on programming speeds commissioning and reduces the risk of water ingress during installation.

The switch unit comprises a 2 gang surface mount white switch & box containing an rf transmitter capable of controlling up to 4 circuits. The rf module can be rehoused in any surface or recessed 2-4 channel switch plate.
How to use it Using the master ''garden on/off'' feature, all Lighting Control Module (LCM) outputs can be switched together. It also provides 9 individual ''Area'' buttons, which can be used in different ways, depending on the size of the project;SMALL : Individual control of 1- 9 lighting circuits, as shown above.MEDIUM : Control of up to 9 ''Areas'', where individual LCM output''s are grouped together to create lighting ''zones''.LARGE : Scene control. Up to 9 complete lighting ''moods'' may be stored and recalled.

The Lighting Control Unit (LCM) ''hears'' the wireless commands from any of Light Symphony''s 1000 metre controllers, such as the remote control or wireless wall-switch pictured above. The Garden On/Off button will switch all outputs together, providing a convenient master control. Each output can also be separately assigned to ''Area'' keys (1-9), to provide individual control.An internal switch enables dimming (on output 1) and the soft on / soft off feature. For larger systems, limitless LCM''s may be used together to create flexible lighting zones or scenes. If a base-station is installed, it will also hear commands from the remote control or wall-switch and echo them. The Lighting Control Modules will ''hear'' both signals, significantly increasing the range and reliability.

PRODUCT AFTERCARE

Although each of our light fittings come with a warranty, it is also important to take care for your product after installation. The outdoor environment can be harsh with very warm and hot conditions as well as extremely cold, wet, and windy conditions and more especially in coastal areas where the salt air is more concentrated causing corrosion. By neglecting to care for your product may void any warranties. Below is information on caring for the different type of products we sell.

COPPER, BRASS & BRONZE

Brass and Bronzes are families of copper-based alloys and mainly copper and zinc. Bronzes are mainly copper along with alloying elements such as tin, aluminium, silicon, or beryllium. Brass generally has a bright gold appearance dependent upon the percentage of copper yields, the higher the percentage the rosier the tone will be, and more zinc will make it appear silvery. Brass has higher malleability than bronze or zinc and is ideal for resisting corrosion including galvanic corrosion from saltwater. Copper products start off with a shiny orange appearance and once installed copper weathers naturally to a lovely blue-green colour or patina over time. In arid climates, the colour change is usually to a nut brown. The colour change is the result of surface oxidation caused mainly by moisture and corrosive elements in the atmosphere. Unlike rust oxidation, the copper patina is a protective barrier that retards further corrosion, to maintain copper’s long life. They are ideal for coastal areas and to keep them looking pristine we recommend cleaning copper surfaces periodically with a solution of salt and vinegar to remove any excess deposits. Simply dissolve salt in vinegar, then use a soft cloth to apply the liquid solution to the surface of the fitting then buff until you see the copper begin to shine. Rinse and dry. The ‘Brasso’ product is a metal polish designed to remove deposits from brass, copper, chrome,and stainless steel. WD 40 is also useful for cleaning brass too and wipe off with soapy water.

316L & 316 STAINLESS STEEL

The highest grade of Stainless Steel we use is 316L Marine Grade Stainless Steel which is a low carbon version of 316 Stainless Steel (which is why it has L after the 316). These grades of Stainless Steel are popular for use in Coastal areas due to the materials immunity from boundary carbide precipitation (sensitisation). However, 316 Stainless Steel contains more carbon and although is still corrosion resistant it does still need care to remove the depositsthat build up on the surface or the corrosion will eventually start to build up on the surface. We sell more 316 than 316L products on this website. The elements of 316L and 316 Stainless Steel are Carbon, Manganese, Phosphorous, Sulphur, Silicon, Chromium, Nickel, Molybdenum, Nitrogen, and Iron. The only difference is that 316L has 0.03 max % of Carbon and 316 has 0.8 max % of carbon. To maintain the shiny clean surface of 316L and 316 Stainless Steel we recommend the use of Stainless-Steel cleaning products or a solution of lemon juice and baking powder and wiped off with soapy water.

304 STAINLESS STEEL

304 Stainless Steel is made up of Carbon, Manganese, Phosphorous, Sulphur, Silicon, Chromium, Nickel, Nitrogen, and Iron. There is no presence of Molybdenum the anti-corrosive element and this metal has a high carbon content too. Therefore, we would not recommend this metal used in coastal areas. Again, it can be cleaned with Stainless Steel cleaning products or a solution of lemon juice and baking powder and wiped off with soapy water. In addition, we would suggest using an anti-corrosive spray such as ACF-50 which forms a clear film onto the surface of the fittings and adds protection to the surface for up to sixmonths. We sell this on our website. https://www.exteriorlightsuk.co.uk/product/acf-50-anti-corrosion-formula

201 STAINLESS STEEL

201 Stainless Steel is made up of Carbon, Manganese, Phosphorous, Sulphur, Silicon, Chromium, Nickel, Nitrogen,and Iron. It contains half the nickel and more manganese and nitrogen than the other popular steels. It is also the least expensive of the steel metals we sell. This mid-range product is prone to corrosion such as salt water and not suitable for coastal areas. Again, it can be cleaned with Stainless Steel cleaning products or a solution of lemon juice and baking powder. In addition, we would suggest using an anti-corrosive spray such as ACF-50 which forms a clear film onto the surface of the fittings and adds protection to the surface for up to six months. We sell this on our website. https://www.exteriorlightsuk.co.uk/product/acf-50-anti-corrosion-formula

TEAK WOOD

Our Teak lighting use timber from a sustainable source, organically oiled during production to enhance and protect the grain. The teak bollards for example are made from a natural raw material which reacts to temperature changes and will naturally release sap or may sweat inside the protective packaging. So, please don’t be alarmed if you notice this when you unpack the bollards from their packaging. Once installed, they will weather naturally in the garden, although further oil, stain or varnish treatments are recommended periodically to preserve the beauty of these products. This should also help prevent the build-up of mildewand drying out from the sun. Teak Sealer and Teak oil can be purchased from many timber and DIY stores. They are suitable for all areas including coastal areas.

ALUMINIUM

Many of our products are made from aluminium which is formed of aluminium oxide in an ore called bauxite. Alumina and bauxite are the two main raw materials in the aluminium making process. Aluminium is obtained by the electrolysis of alumina which extracts pure aluminium metal from alumina. Aluminium will not rust however it does suffer from oxidation and is prone to corrosion. We would not recommend Aluminium products in coastal areas. To maintain the surface of the product you can clean with a solution of vinegar and water and rinse with soapy water. Again, our ACF-50 anti-corrosive spray will provide a clear protective coating to the surface of the fittings and can offer up to six months protection. https://www.exteriorlightsuk.co.uk/product/acf-50-anti-corrosion-formula

POWDER COATED FINISHES

Many of our coloured finished products have been powder coated onto aluminium. This is a technique to apply decorative and protective finishes to aluminium through a process that electrostatically charges the powder consisting of a mixture of finely milled resin and pigment, spraying it on to the aluminium surface as a baking process. Although they look effective, please bear in mind that the powder is a paint and in coastal areas the paint can peel and expose the aluminium to corrosion. Therefore, we would not recommend powder coated aluminium fittings in coastal areas. To clean the surface simply use soapy water and a soft cloth and do not use anything abrasive as this will damage the finish. Again, our ACF-50 anti-corrosive spray will provide a clear protective coating to the surface of the fittings and can offer up to six months protection. https://www.exteriorlightsuk.co.uk/product/acf-50-anti-corrosion-formula

ANODISED PAINT FINISH

Anodised coloured paint finishes give a lustre shiny finish to the surface of aluminium fittings and this is done by dipping the aluminium component into an acid electrolyte bath and applying an electric current to the liquid usinga cathode. This causes oxygen ions within the aluminium to be released, which then combine with the aluminium atoms on the surface of the component to create the anodic oxide finish. This process gives the metal surface a porous structure, which can then be coloured with dyes and sealed afterwards. The advantage of the anodised finish is that it is not applied on the surface of the metal, instead, it is integrated with the aluminium substrate, which means it does not peel or chip like paint. The beauty of anodising is that it does not come off and it should protect the aluminium depending upon the thickness for at least 5 years and therefore reduce corrosion occurring. If used in coastal areas, we would recommend they are cleaned regularly with soapy water. Again, our ACF-50 anti-corrosive spray will provide a clear protective coating to the surface of the fittings and can offer up to six monthsprotection. https://www.exteriorlightsuk.co.uk/product/acf-50-anti-corrosion-formula

POLYCARBONATE (PC) –PLASTIC

Polycarbonate is a durable thermoplastic material with high impact resistance. It is quite light in weight and used primarily for Amenity style light fittings. It is fine for use in all areas including the coast. It should be cleaned periodically with warm soapy water to remove any deposits that have accumulated over time.

FeCSI-Steel

The element Iron (Fe) used in conjunction with steel alloys is put together to produce a product that eliminates the need for painting, and which forms a stable rust-like appearance after several years’ exposure to the weather. This product is used in some of our bollards under our ‘Rustic Bollard’ Category. They are very heavy and robust fittings. The surface oxidation of weathering steel takes approximately six months. When first purchased some residue rust colour from the manufactured product may be visible and will wash away with the elements of the weather. Over time they will naturally give a rust effect appearance and you will be able to touch them without any rust residue staining. An example of this is shown on our website for the ‘Rusty Slot’ fitting. They are ideal for all areas including the coast.

GRANITE

Granite is a coarse-grained igneous rock composed mostly of quartz, alkali feldspar and plagioclase. It is a hard semi-porous rock which is resistant to heat and cold. Ideal for any area, however salt deposits in coastal areas will accumulate onto the surface of the rock so it is advisable to clean the surface with warm soapy water periodically. Do not use anything abrasive.
