Local Thorn Civiteq Small Lanterns

 The smaller version of Thorn's Civiteq LED lantern started appearing in small numbers in Derbyshire in 2017, with a larger number following in early 2018, especially in the Chesterfield and South Normanton areas, where it was used as a replacement side road lantern at both five and six metres, in both side-entry and post-top configurations. For local examples of the Civiteq Large, please click here.

This example in Chesterfield is attached to a 6 m column. The previous column at this location ended its days supporting another Thorn product - a 55 W PL-L Celest lantern. The Celest entered my Collection upon its column being removed in January 2018. The Civiteq is switched by a Zodion ZCell one-part photocell, with a 20 Lux switching setting.

     

A single circuit board containing twelve LEDs is fitted in this lantern; the label adjacent the spigot adaptor stating that it runs at 26 W and is designed to provide illumination to a 'P4' road lighting class.

 

Two Civiteqs were used as replacement lanterns to the two columns that straddled a freshly-renewed pedestrian crossing in Heanor in 2017.

 

The left-hand example is installed post-top to an existing 10 m tubular steel column; the column being fitted with an adaptor (in place of its original side-entry bracket), in order to accommodate the lantern. A SELC / Westire AcRo photocell set at 35 Lux is fitted here.

 

Meanwhile, a side-entry example was retro-fitted to a sleeved Stanton 6 column. Here, the photocell is a Royce Thompson Oasis 2000 type; as with the Chesterfield example, this is set at the lower rating of 20 Lux.

 

The lantern accommodates 36 LEDs, with the total power consumption being 74 W. The 'ND' code on the identification label on the underside tells us that this lantern is a 'non-dim' type; thus, it will run at full output throughout the night, rather than reducing in brightness in the quieter periods.
