Entry Description

Sensor-switched LED light XSolar, the world's most efficient LED solar light – and one of the most attractive. Bright light, 365 days of the year, zero energy costs. Ideal for mounting on garden walls and external walls – wherever there's no power connection. The XSolar spectacular through and through – in terms of design but above all in the technology stakes. The 0.5-W LED lighting system delivering a sensational 124 lm/W of light is 12times more efficient than a conventional bulb and provides even illumination for an area up to 30 m2. Steinel LEDs have a life expectancy of around 50,000 h which means no maintenance work is necessary. This means: no need to change a bulb ever again!
The XSolar wall spotlight also comes with an infrared sensor that's discreetly integrated underneath the LED panel. Angle of coverage: 140°. Reach: 8m radially. This means light is only switched ON when the sensor detects movement. the XSolar is equipped with a monocrystalline solar panel with matt-finished mineral glass cover for optimising the conversion of sunlight into energy. Solar panel and LED panel both turn. Additionally integrated, the compass helps to set the solar panel to face south. Solar panel and LED panel can also be mounted separately – e.g. to the right and left of a building corner so that the solar panel catches the most sunlight.
The elegant and slim design gives shape to this highly innovative light and expresses its quality in every detail.
