Are Pavelux® fixtures waterproof?

Christen Hartman

Answer
Yes. Pavelux® is a waterproof, completely encapsulated LED paver insert. The fixtures are IP67 rated, which means that they are fully protected from dust and can withstand immersion between 15 centimeters and 1 meter in depth.

How do I obtain a previous version as a replacement?

Christen Hartman

Answer
We have reserved limited stock of our previous version to fulfill warranty and service related issues. If you return an Integral Lighting fixture for warranty, we will replace it with the same LED package to ensure your light output remains equivalent.

Keep in mind that all LED packages degrade slowly in the amount of light output, therefore, we do not guarantee a perfect match on output brightness.

What is Pavelux®?

Christen Hartman

Answer
Pavelux® is the next generation of LED paver lighting.

Our minimalist design is molded from UV resistant polycarbonate for durability as strong as your stone surface. Choose from three standard lengths and two choices of popular LED color outputs.

Our design is intentionally simple, allowing for insertion between pavers and requiring no cutting or drilling for installation. The fixture itself is virtually invisible during the day, reducing impact on your design without sacrificing lighting effects at night.

Pavelux® is stocked in 3000K pure white and 2400K ultrawarm white LED options, ensuring same day shipping and quick delivery.

How is the new circuit board improved?

Christen Hartman

Answer

Our earlier LED version was built on a standard FR4 circuit board (fiberglass and epoxy construction) with conformal coating. Fiber core boards can absorb moisture over time, which can compromise the integrity of the circuit.

The new LED package is built on a MCB circuit board (metal core construction) with conformal coating. Aluminum does not allow moisture to penetrate the circuitry and the added benefit is immediate heat transfer from the LED chip. Heat is the enemy of the LED chip. Aluminum allows efficient transfer of heat and promotes added life to the LED.

How do I size a transformer for my lighting installation?

admin

Answer

Calculate the transformer required by determining the total wattage of all lighting fixtures. This is the minimum required output of the transformer. You typically want to choose a transformer that supplies no more than 30% more.

For example:

  • 10 LED wall lights @ 2 watts each = 20 watts
  • 10 LED deck lights @ 1 watt each = 10 watts
  • 5 LED path lights @ 3 watts = 15 watts
  • Total minimum output required by the transformer = 45 watts

In this example, a 60 watt magnetic or electronic transformer would be ideal.

How do I mount a low voltage transformer?

admin

Answer
Your power supply should be mounted at least 12 inches above ground level. Many transformers are not completely sealed and should have that clearance according to UL 1838.

What type of LED is used by Integral Lighting?

admin

Answer
We utilize a hybrid 12vAC LED. Our LEDs are engineered specifically for use with both magnetic and electronic transformers. Why did we choose this type of AC LED platform? There are no additional electronic components or drivers required to operate them, which means less can go wrong.

Our imitators and knock offs incorporate upwards of 20 individual electronics ranging from diodes and transistors to inductors and IC regulators, not to mention electrolytic and ceramic capacitors, all of which are a source for potential failure in the future.

Do I need to take voltage readings with electronic transformers?

admin

Answer
It’s not necessary. The electronic transformer automatically supplies 11.5 volts AC and adjusts for the amount of demand. The actual output will vary depending on the number of fixtures but will not exceed 11.5 volts.

When utilizing a magnetic transformer, it is advised to take voltage readings. As magnetic transformers do not regulate voltage, accurate readings are necessary to ensure your fixtures perform as warranted.

How do I obtain pricing on Integral Lighting products?

admin

Answer
Integral Lighting is a manufacturer and does not sell directly to the general public. We have Authorized Distributors in many states which can be located by visiting our Distributor Locator. The final price of our product is determined by our Authorized Distributors. Realize that they are independent and both pricing and expertise for your project will vary from one to the next.
