Fitting Tips

The Arcadia Reptile Ultraseal lamp holders offer both keeper and animal total security against dangerous water ingress. To comply with the new waterproof lighting regulations we have designed and made this system to be IP67 or waterproof. This does however mean that the lamp holders must be tight. To enable the safe and easy fitting of lamps the following advice is given:

  • Unscrew the lamp rings from the lamp holders.
  • Use a very small amount of Vaseline on the rubber seal on the inside of the sealing ring to moisturise the rubber seal. Wipe away and overspill from the lamp holder and lamp.
  • Slide the lamp ring over the lamp and carefully line up the pins on the lamp with the two holes inside of the lamp holder and push gently. The lamp should seat into the lamp holder with a slight click. Do not turn the lamp as the pins will sheer off.
  • Slide the lamp ring back down towards the lamp holder and holding the lamp tight with one hand screw up the lamp ring until gently seated with the other.
  • T5 lamp run hotter than T8 lamps and the rubber seal around the lamp sealing ring may stick to the lamp or degrade over time, these rings can be easily replaced with product code AB5R.

T5 UV Starer Units

A range of UV starter units for use with T5 bulbs. The connectors on these units are a standard T5 fitting meaning they are compatible with all T5 fluorescent tubes. There are a variety of wattages available to ensure we have the optimal controller for use with your T5 tube.

When choosing your T5 unit you need to think about the wattage of the bulbs you are going to use. A controller with too lower wattage will not provide enough energy for the tube to work effectively while a controller with too higher wattage may blow the bulb or burn it out quicker than expected.

We have also included a range using standard fittings for dry enclosures and a range using waterproof seals for use in enclosures that have high humidity or need to be sprayed.
