Light Trap Accessories & Options

PHOTOELECTRIC SWITCHES

Photoelectric switches turn the Light Trap on at dusk and off at twilight. This enables the user to set the trap out earlier in the evening and retrieve it later in the morning while reducing wear on the battery. The new photoelectric switch is built into the ballast enclosure and should be ordered at time of light trap purchase.


The new photoelectric switch can be added later. However, the ballast must be returned to us to be retrofitted with the new switch.


Photoelectric switches are recommended for both 32 Watt and 40 Watt - 12 Volt DC Light Traps.

REPLACEMENT FLUORESCENT BALLAST

Ballasts are designed for use with fluorescent bulbs of a specific wattage. Using the incorrect ballast will shorten the life of the bulb and affect the UV bands that are emitted from the bulb.


We changed the design of the ballast in 2003 and the wiring of the vane assemblies in 2005 to allow the use of both AC and DC power in both Collecting Lights and Light Traps. However, Light Traps manufactured prior to 2005 are wired for a specific voltage, either AC or DC. Unless specified as a dual voltage trap, The AC ballast will not operate a DC trap and vise versa. The new ballast will operate existing traps; however, the wiring must be modified to properly operate the bulb. The new ballast will operate both Collecting Lights and Light Traps of the same wattage. To insure that you receive the correct ballast, contact us directly before ordering a replacement ballast. Unlike older designs, the new ballast is repairable. We have an inventory of new and rebuilt ballast and can ship a replacement ballast in 48 hours or less.


We also offer replacement ballast and bulbs for all makes of light traps. These include Ilisco, Agri-Lite, BioQuip, Gempler, and other light traps that are no longer manufactured.

BEETLE SORTER

The Beetle Sorter or Separator is a small metal container which is placed on the Rain Drain. The bottom of the Beetle Sorter is perforated with .125 holes. This allows rain water to pass through the Beetle Sorter. Beetles are attracted to the UV light and enter the trap. The beetles fall into the Beetle Sorter, although they crawl around within the Beetle Sorter, most seldom escape.
