Electrical advise

Hi peoples,

I'm just changing a regular light with halogen lights in the baby's room, but don't know how to connect the wires.

Perhaps someone could tell me what each wire is for.

I've got a green one (thicker than the other ones), a red one and a black one.

I've already turned the power to the lights off.

Help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Cheers, Paul

Re: Electrical advise

If you don't know the difference between Active, Neutral and Earth I seriously suggest you call a Licenced Sparky mate specially seeing as its in a Babys room.

Re: Electrical advise

Active is either brown or red, Neutral is either blue or black and Earth is green or green/yellow.

Just make sure they match. Some info here:

Baby's room or not, if you don't know what you're doing, get someone who does in to do it.

Re: Electrical advise

Red is your active

Black is neutral

Green is Earth

The Red runs through the switch.

That's why I want to do something different when I'm out of the Navy. Climbing around pipes and bilges is one thing. Climbing under people's houses is another.
