11:15 - VERSA 12v Plug & Play System – Garden Lighting made Simple
Lumena’s favourite motto is “Keep it Simple…”and with the exclusive VERSA Plug & Play Range, lighting the Garden couldn’t be easier!
The new VERSA Plug & Play Range includes high quality in ground and step lights, spike lights and path lights, as well as the beautiful LuxRox Rock Lights and more. Over the coming months, most of Lumena’s 12v lights will have a VERSA Plug & Play Adaptor making installation even simpler.
This versatile system eradicates fiddly wiring. A two-pin plug at the end of each cable length simply pushes into a VERSA Connector / Splitter, or directly into a Transformer, and is secured by the threaded cap.
Various sizes of transformer, cable lengths, and multi-splitters are available, enabling the circuit to be as long as required, and allowing numerous lights to be fitted.
