A switch interrupts the hot leg of the circuit, so it has terminals only for black wires (and ground). The terminals are brass. You connect the black wire from the power source to one of these brass terminals - the line terminal - and the black wire going to the light fixture to the other, which is the load terminal Single switch with 2 lights, not in series. The 1st image below is a typical diagram for a switch with 2 lights. I have a scenario where I can't wire the 2 lights in series because they go off in different directions. Can I wire it like the 2nd (modified) image below A single pole light switch wiring diagram. Wiring a single pole or one-way light switch is easy, it requires 3 wires.

Wiring Diagram for Dual Outlets. Here 3-wire cable is run from a double-pole circuit breaker providing an independent 120 volts to two sets of multiple outlets. The neutral wire from the circuit is shared by both sets. This wiring is commonly used in a 20 amp kitchen circuit where two appliance feeds are needed, such as for a refrigerator and a microwave in the same location Some gang boxes are in locations that do not allow the box to be expanded to add a separate light switch. You can wire two single pole light switches in the same gang box using a device that combines two separate single pole light switches into one device, using the original single switch space

The hot source (of the first 2-wire cable) is connected to the common terminal of the first switch (to the left, in the diagram). Neutral (or white wire) coming from the same 2-wire cable is connected to the first light. Between lights, another 2-wire cable is used and connected to appropriate terminals. The hot (or black) wire coming from the. (Get the proper sized wire nuts). Each of these pigtails should go to the bottom of a switch. Take the red wire from the 14/3, and wire it to the other terminal of Switch 1. The black from the 14/3 and wire it to switch 2. The black form the outside light and wire it to switch 3. Take all the white wires, and wire them together Two-way means that the switch has two positions, on and off, and two-gang means that two switches are packaged together.

The second two way light switch is a bit easier to wire up. The cable coming from the first light switch is connected as follows (fig 5). The red wire is connected to the common (C) terminal, the yellow wire is connected to the (L1) terminal, the blue wire is connected to the (L2) terminal and the earth wire is connected to the earth terminal Remove the existing socket or switch from the wall (if replacing). Remove any plaster debris and dust from the inside of the wall box. Always use the correct type of cable that is rated appropriately. The terminal layout may vary from one socket or switch to another, therefore carefully check the location of the terminal connections before wiring I want 2 ( maybe 3) outlets controlled by the same switch. Easy enough. But, in addition, I want half of each outlet controlled by the switch and the other half of each outlet always hot. Is there a wiring diagram somewhere for this? I just haven't found it. A diagram would help confirm how I think it should be done An electrician wired up a double switch for a couple of outside lights that i would install at a later date once we put up a lean to conservatory/sun room. I have opened the switch up (obv after turning elec off!) and there are two wires coming in to the switch. Both neutrals are terminated a terminal block and both earths are terminated at the.
