3 24 3-way & outlet wiring

  1. 1. Ag. Concepts Wiring 3 way switches & outlets
  2. 2. What are Wiring Boxes? <ul><li>when a white wire is used as positive, paint black or use black tape </li></ul><ul><li>four wires per standard box (not counting ground wires) </li></ul><ul><li>duplex receptacle may be on two circuits by breaking metal tab </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is a Single-Pole Switch? <ul><li>it is the only switch on the circuit </li></ul><ul><li>it opens/closes the positive wire </li></ul>
  4. 4. Light Wiring Concepts <ul><li>always begin at the SEP </li></ul><ul><li>Black or Hot wire comes out of SEP, goes to the switch </li></ul><ul><li>Black wire leave switch, goes to light </li></ul><ul><li>White wire leaves light, returns to SEP </li></ul>
  5. 9. Three-Way Switch <ul><li>used in pairs </li></ul><ul><li>control from two different locations </li></ul><ul><li>3 terminals (screws) </li></ul><ul><li>current (black wire) feeds into Common Terminal (dark screw) </li></ul><ul><li>current flows out of other two screws through Traveller Wires to other 3-way switch </li></ul>
  6. 10. Three-Way Switch <ul><li>current flows out of other switch from the Common Terminal </li></ul><ul><li>current flows to light or receptacle </li></ul>
