1. Place the light on a soft surface to avoid scratching the diffuser. Using the key taped to the body of the light, remove the base by turning the key and pulling on the barrel lock.
2. Mount Smart-Connect base by fixing it to the ceiling at all four corners. Minimum size fixing: 6.5mm. If fixing to plasterboard use 4 hollow wall anchors.
3. Connect the Smart-Connect base wiring to the light circuit wiring of the building.3a. The conduit locator tabs can be used to hold the conduit in the correct position. Standard conduit size is 20mm. For 25mm conduit a reducer is required.

4. Place Smart-Connect Base plate hinge tabs into slots located at opposite end to barrel lock. Align the electrical connector terminal pins on the light fitting to the terminal block sockets on the base.

Once aligned, press the light upwards to connect. Do not force the light into the base terminal without aligning the pins and clicking the hinges as the pins may snap.

5. Push barrel lock in to secure.


The Chamaeleon emergency light is programmed to automatically conduct a monthly 90 minute discharge test. The test does not disrupt the light's normal operation. The monthly discharge test is visable via single multi colour LED indicator, located under the diffuser.
