This type of photo-eye has electronics in it that increase the resistance and stop the flow of electricity when light hits the sensor. This electrical wiring question came from in The Villages, Florida. Another solution is to use a photo cell with a relay output. The side with the sensor has a red wire coming from the house , the side with out the sensor does not have a red wire.
I have a photocell and was just wondering do you switch just one leg to shut it on and off and if that is the case why is a 240 volt photo cell needed? Thank you i bought a dusk to dawn flood light a few years ago and out of the box it stayed on all the time so i set it back and used another. I have 240 at socket and have triple checked that I am using 120 tap. You can download and obtain the 32 Photos Photocell Outdoor Lighting Wiring images by click the download button below to get multiple high-resversions. For the 240 vac rated microinverters should be within the following ranges line to line 211 to 264 vac line to neutral 106 to 132 vac field wiring diagram 240 vac single phase note the grounding method shown is one of multiple allowable methods a gec grounding electrode conductor is required only for m215 60 2ll. So, on one side there is s light sensor and the other side there is not.
I had a photocell on my exterior Christmas lights and if the cell was facing into the ground It would turn on much sooner then when I turned it to face away from the ground or wall. I have hooked this thing up every way I could think of and it always dose the same thing. The wiring diagram is the blueprint for the ballast circuitry, including the input supply voltage and grounding methods. The ballast data tables in our catalog indicate the page number and reference letter corresponding to the correct diagram for each ballast product. Not all ignitors or starters are capable of remote operation.
Check it out for yourself! I have two exterior lights on each side of the garage, they were put in by an electrician 7 years after the house was built. I bought a photocell sensor on eBay after learning Lowes, Home Depot, and Walmart were either out of stock on them or did not carry them. Best of all it's totally free! I have no transformer on any of the lights. Here is main information about Lighting.

We got our house painted and the painters didn't wire the lights back the correct way.
I want to know how to wire up the cobra head light fixture and my voltage coming from my warehouse is 208volts. If you look at that ballast wire, it probably says 277V on it. Although I could not find anything showing what I needed, I did gather enough to attempt it. More about Electrical Wiring for Lights Electrical Wire for the Home Complete listing of electrical wire types and parts used for home projects with electrical code information serves as selection guidelines. Since both com wires are labeled the same, does it matter which one goes to the lamp and which one goes to the wall socket? A ground connection must be made to all ballasts to avoid shock hazard, personal injury or damage to the luminaire or installation. If they don't go out you have a defective photoeye.
The dryer will run on 110v but will not heat. This light is a Uni tech with a vapor bulb and a plug in sensor, and inside looks like a large capacitor is attached. Estimated Time: Depends on personal level experience and ability to work with tools. I don't see a ground wire, so how do you ground it? The black wire from photocell to the black wire from the house circuit. Use electrical tape or wire connectors to cap off the disconnected wires.

I have already wired it with black to black and white to white. And if you had 208 volt incandesent lamps it would be legal to control them by just switching one leg. Most ballast manufacturers offer ignitors designed for remote operation seperatly.
It is possible that the charger is universal, just not labelled as such. If they do go out then the photo-eye is in a position where it isn't receiving enough daylight to increase the internal resistance to shut off the current flow thru the photo-eye thus turning off the lights. If it had 2 wires, it should be easy, but with 3. I have one on the side of my house for some exterior lights and sure enough the first one I got from the home center was in fact faulty. In a 120 240v single split phase system the two ungrounded hot legs are actually connected to the secondary winding of the distribution transformer the transformer actually steps down the voltage to 240 volts so the two legs are a complete 240 volt circuit you check the wiring diagram for what the device requires and if it says. I take it the wire labeled 120v goes to the black wire from the wall socket? By continuing to browse our site you agree to our use of data and cookies.
