This indoor floodlight was bought directly from an online retailer in order to provide a use for the magenta 'Colorlite' lamp in the collection. The floodlight would typically be used for providing additional lighting on items of interest; for example, a shop display.
Seeing as the floodlight is not intended to be used in arduous environments, it is only rated to IP20. The area containing the gear features slats in order to allow for the movement of air around the components. A short length of flex links the fitting to a connector located in the base - whilst the floodlight's casing can be opened by removing the four screws holding it together, doing so is strongly discouraged in the instructions.
A flat piece of glass prevents the lamp from being touched - this can be removed by releasing the two clips located at either end.
The floodlight was initially powered up on Friday, 31st July 2009. However, within a few seconds of being switched on, one of the lamp's end caps started giving off smoke - I assumed that this was probably not meant to happen and quickly switched it off again...Once the lamp had cooled down sufficiently, I gently removed it from the fitting - the damaged end cap immediately broke off! A replacement lamp was then sought. Once this arrived, it was fitted into the floodlight and thankfully it worked properly when powered up. I was surprised at the final colour of the lamp - I thought it would be a deep magenta colour but instead of that, the colour was white with a slight magenta tinge to it.
