Single Pole Switch With Pilot Light Wiring Diagram The Leviton 15 Amp White Combination Switch with Neon Pilot Light features a neon pilot light that illuminates when the switch is turned on. This white switch controls lights from 1 location. Its space- saving design enables multiple devices to fit in a single standard wall box. A wall plate is not included.
Single Pole Switch With Pilot Light Wiring Diagram Single-pole switches are the most common light switches in a home. They have two screw terminals plus a ground screw. One screw terminal is for the "hot" wire that feeds the switch from the power source. The other terminal is for a second hot wire, called a switch leg, that runs only between the switch and the light fixture.
Single Pole Switch With Pilot Light Wiring Diagram A 2 wire switch leg is pulled from the switch to the nearest light.Below is a line diagram and a wiring schematic of a basic single pole switch wiring circuit. Line diagrams help electricians figure out how to make wiring connections by simplifying the circuit. They are drawn with the hot on the left and the neutral on the right.
Single Pole Switch With Pilot Light Wiring Diagram In terms of electrical connections, the only difference between a conventional switch and one with a pilot light is the presence of a single silver terminal on the pilot switch. This is for connecting the light -- not the switch -- to the neutral leg of the circuit that powers the fixture.
