Components used to make the connect light switch:

01. RCCB

Fig 2: RCCB

The RCCB (Residual Current Circuit Breaker) or RCCB is an electrical protective device.Residual Current Circuit Breaker is specially designed to protect the electrical circuit against earth fault and human from electrical shock.In this, under normal condition the load is always connected in between the phase terminal to neutral terminal, hence the flow of phase current is equal to neutral current.Earth fault or fault in a power system can cause excess heating, more power consumption, burning or fire, etc. So, protection against earth leakage is very important.

02. DP MCB

Fig 3: DP MCB

Double pole MCB can control two wires. This circuit breaker is generally used in single-phase electric lines. Double pole MCB circuit breaker input has two wires supply two wires and an output. In a single-phase line, A double-pole MCB circuit breaker is used to give good production. This circuit breaker is provided through phase and neutral circuit breaker, it is very safe. This circuit breaker is preferred for home appliances. A DP MCB usually trips for 2 reasons 1. Overload 2. Short circuit.

03. Relay

Fig 4: Relay

This relay is known as 8 pin relay because it has 8 terminals. When coil power is supplied. A magnetic induction is created due to which the connected sheet of the Com part moves towards the NO part changing to NO-NC. The former NC region loses conductivity and becomes NO. Thus, as long as power is supplied to the coil, the NO and NC positions will remain in the alternating state, and when the power is removed from the coil, it will return to its original position. This is basically how a relay switch works.

04. Switch

Fig 5: Switch

A Single-Pole, Single-Throw (SPST) Switch. It's Got one Output and One Input. The Switch will Either be Closed or Completely Disconnected. SPSTs are Perfect for on-off Switching. They're also a Very Common Form of Momentary Switches. SPST Switches are Commonly Used in a Variety of Electrical Circuits and Applications, Such as Turning on And off Lights, Fans, and Other Appliances. They can Also be Used to Control the Flow of Electricity to Different Parts of a Circuit or to Switch Between Different Circuits Altogether.

05. Light

Fig 6: Light

CFLs work in a completely different way from ordinary lamps, they work by using a different process called fluorescence rather than generating light from heat. A typical light bulb wastes 90% of energy and converts only 10% of energy into light, this is where CFL has the biggest advantage. CFL- Curved or conical glass tube filled with argon and a small amount of mercury vapor. The inner wall of the glass is coated with fluorescent material. CFL- It is manufactured using the principle of creating fluorescent light. CFL- Originally white in color but now the construction and use of CFLs producing colored light has become popular.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to wire a 2-way light switch 1 way?

Most 2-way switches have a Common power supply terminal, as well as an L1 and L2 terminal Circuit diagram. For 2-way switching, you will need to Project a system to connect both L1 and L2. For one-way switching, as you have one less connection Circuit diagram, you only need to use the Project system L1 connection.

Are there 2 way light switches?

The single switch controls a single light Project system (or lighting circuit diagram). 2-Way Switches: A '2-way' switch means there is another switch controlling the Circuit diagram same light. These are often used on a power supply staircase, or large room with switches by each Currenttlou door.

How to wire 2 switches to one light 12V?

1) Connect 12V from the battery to the middle connection of the Circuit diagram nearest the switch. 2) Run 2 wires to the second switch Power supply, 1 wire from top to top of the 2 switches Circuit diagram. The second wire is from the bottom to the bottom of the two switches. 3) A wire from the middle connector of the second switch goes to the +ve terminal of the lamp.

Can I connect 2 switches with 2 cables?

Please do not connect more than 1 cable between the 2 switches because you will create a loop. If you need redundancy you should currently enable STP on 1820 before connecting the Power supply second cable. First, you should check if it will be working.

What is a two-light switch?

2 gang light switches also known as double light switches have two switches on the plate that control two lighting circuits. Within the wide range of 2g light switches, there are multiple colors, finishes, and profile types from top trusted brands, to ensure the perfect double light switch for any room. Read more.
