The Eterna 12W LED White Flush Light with Microwave Movement Sensor comes from the manufacturer’s stylish Sparrowhawk range and offers great value. It can be used in bathrooms, thanks to its IP66-rated resistance to dust and water. This fitting has a microwave sensor that triggers light when it detects movement within a maximum 12-metre, 150° range. The detection range and duration of activated light are adjustable. There is also a lux adjustment, which lets you control how dark it needs to be before the light can switch itself on.
One of the advantages of a microwave sensor over a PIR sensor is that it can be positioned inside the fitting, which makes for a very clean, uncluttered design. The stylish Eterna 12W LED White Flush Light with Microwave Movement Sensor is proof of this. Its good looks belie a tough construction with durable ABS casing and a shatter-resistant polycarbonate diffuser. The diffuser is optically enhanced to ensure a smooth flow of softened light.
The Eterna 12W LED White Flush Light with Microwave Movement Sensor is suitable for a wide range of commercial or domestic applications. It will save money by automatically switching light off when a room is unoccupied. In accordance with Eterna’s guidelines and IET wiring regulations, this fitting is safe to install in zone 2 or outside zones of a bathroom or washroom.
Carrying an ‘A’ energy rating, the Eterna 12W LED White Flush Light with Microwave Movement Sensor uses an LED array to emit 730 lumens of cool white 4200K light in a 120° beam (800 lm total light). This is at least 80% more energy efficient than incandescent or halogen lighting. Peak luminous intensity is 480 cd and colour rendering is of a high standard.
In addition to its energy efficiency, the Eterna 12W LED White Flush Light with Microwave Movement Sensor boasts a lifespan of 25,000 hours. It will last for several years in most commercial environments, which may easily extend into decades with moderate home use. This fitting does not accept replacement bulbs or LED modules.
LED lighting has other benefits over incandescent and fluorescent lighting. These include instant full power start, high tolerance of frequent switching, reliable cold temperature performance, resistance to shock or vibration, compact size, little or no IR or UV radiation, and no mercury content.
