What is it ?

How does it work?

A photo-sensor signal keeps the light off during daylight hours, and turns the light on automatically each evening. The KnightLighter ™ Automatic Gaslight Igniter will also automatically re-ignite the lantern should the flame be blown out.

Vulcan Lighting offers both a 24VAC and a convenient Battery powered model. The battery model is very useful for retrofitting existing gaslight installations.

The 24VAC Model can be used for new gaslight installations and can be used with a wall switch, timer, or remote control as well as the automatic photo-sensor control.

Igniter operating and installation instructions are available and will accompany the purchase of each igniter system.

Is the gas light igniter safe for indoor use?

Knightronix™ does not recommend using the KnightLighter ™ Automatic Gaslight Igniter indoors. Vulcan Lighting offers several burner designs using a Gas Light Thermal Safety Shutoff Valve that is approved for indoor or outdoor use.

All Legendary Lighting natural gas and propane gas lanterns equipped with either electronic ignition or automatic shutoff valve are C.S.A. Certified to comply with ANSI Standard Z21.42 for indoor or outdoor use.

Why is it needed?

The KnightLighter ™ Automatic Gaslight Igniter is a convenient way of lighting your gaslight as well as making sure that is stays lit. It is especially useful in situations where gaslights are installed in higher locations as over doors, or posts, where ladders are needed to turn lights on and off. Also, the KnightLighter™ Automatic Gaslight Igniter conserves 50% on gas consumption by shutting off the gaslight during daylight hours and automatically turning it on at night.

How is it Installed?

The KnightLighter ™ Automatic Gaslight Igniter is designed to be installed in the bottom of the gaslight head. It should fit near the floor of the gaslight so as to be inconspicuous. Vulcan Lighting would be happy to help you with customized igniter integrations; Contact Us, for more information.

General installation instructions:

Install the igniter in the bottom of the gaslight head. Connect to a 1/8"copper coil or flex gas line by tightening the 1/4" Flare Nut onto a 1/4"x 1/8" Flare fitting on the input to the gas light valve of the igniter, pushing the copper tubing down into the post (for post installations).

The Model KNA1-24V Igniter shall be connected only to 24vac +/-4vac. DO NOT CONNECT DIRECT TO 120 VAC. A transformer is used to convert 120 VAC to 24 VAC, and can be supplied by the customer or purchased through Vulcan Lighting.

The Battery model runs on 4AA batteries that should last for approx. one year.

Igniter operating and installation instructions are available and will accompany the purchase of each igniter system.
