Electronic Ignition System
What is it?
The Electronic Ignition System available from Carolina Lanterns allows outdoor gas lights to be turned on with a typical light switch. With Electronic Ignition, should the flame of your outdoor lantern be blown out, the lantern will automatically re-ignite. Customers now have
the convenience of turning their outdoor gas light on and off with the flip of a switch rather than with lighters and ladders.
Why is it needed?
The Electronic Ignition System can be used for situations where outdoor lanterns are installed over doors, or where ladders are needed to turn outdoor gas lights on and off. These systems are also great energy conservation tools, when customers do not want to burn their outdoor lantern continuously.
How does it work?
With a standard wall mounted light switch, outdoor gas lights can be turned on and off. Furthermore, if either the electricity or gas service to your outdoor lantern is interrupted, the flame extinguishes and stays off until the service is resumed, and then the flame will automatically re-ignite. At no time is the un-ignited gas flow allowed to continue more than the few seconds it takes for the igniter to restart the flame. The system is comprised of 4 different components; valve, transformer, control box, and igniter. The specifications are available and will be sent with your new outdoor lantern or indoor gas light.
How is it Installed?
Reduce your gas supply line coming from wall with 1/4 copper coil or flex line, using a 3/8 male adapter to connect to the Electronic Ignition Gas Valve. Electronic Ignition valve has 3/8 female connection. The power source operating the electronics is 24 V.A.C. 40VA. The transformer can be supplied by customer or by Carolina Lanterns.
