    Thanks will try that in the daylight

    Well look at it like this, the lamp needs a supply & neutral, the sensor needs a supply,output and a neutral, lamp needs just supply and neutral,zo the output (A)is the supply for the lamp, but when they sell these things they dont mention that...be careful with AC mains & work with one hand only, that way an electric shock won't kill you. Greetings :)

It is best not to speculate about this - you need to refer to the data sheet for the switch. The passive infrared sensor will require a low voltage for operation which it will derive from the mains (probably) but that would usually require a neutral to be present in some form.

A neutral of sorts could be derived from the circuit through the load, but only while it is switched off) or from the earth connection, which is a practice that is frowned upon.

A could stand for Ausgang or output, lamp needs to be wired between A and N. Hope that helps!

I have a cooper 6107 motion sensing 3 way wall swithch and I am using it to replace a three way non motion sensing switch. I have it wired correctly, green to ground, black to common, and the red and brown...


Cooper 6107 instruction sheets:

http://www.cooperindustries.com/content/dam/public/wiringdevices/products/documents/spec_sheets/std_sensswitch_spsht_4_10_anp.pdf

3-way installation shows two motion sensor switches.
Instructions do not show 1 motion sensor and 1 ordinary 3-way switch.

Also note the maximum load rating is 500Watt

Wiring motion sensor for bathroom lights SL-6107-WH need to know what color ires are? BLK,Brn,Red,Grn


OK .. this sounds european .. but as I understand it ,,, the black would be power connection .. the brown would be neutral connection .. and the red would dgo to the light being controlled .. the green always connects to everything metal


If there is no neutral wire in your switch box to connect to ,,. then you will need to get a dimmer that does not require a neutral connection.

Heath-zenith sl-6107 wiring diagram


hi there the wirings colour codes for nz are as follows

OLD WIRING CODE

Green = Earth
Black = Neutral
Red = Phase Or Live

NEW WIRING CODE

Green/Yellow = Earth
Blue = Neutral
Brown = Phase or Live

============DANGER 230VOLT ===============

Electricity can kill.
You should use an Electrical contractor for this repair job,
Caution always turn off power first before touching any wiring,

The Live wires always carry power,from one point to another,
the black neutral is your return path from the live phase wire
the green wire is always the ground ,

In this example

the sensor will have four wires as follows

Green = Earth Wire
Black = Neutral
Brown = Phase (incoming supply) 24 hrs
Red = Phase Load (outgoing supply) from sensor to lights triggered

Notice there are to phases in the circuit.Brown and Red
Always treat them as LIVE or Active Power.

Brown will normally be the Live incoming power and
Red will be the load side of the sensor,

Check the brochure supplied by manufactuers or their website to confirm the wiring order is correct before commencing any installs or repairs,

Always Safety first.
Safe a live today and you'll remembered forever.

Need to reconnect tail lights,blinkers,stoplight 08 honda crf450x


CRF450x rear wiring is as follows:
Green/yellow stripe-tail light only earth
green-blinkers+tail light.Common neutral.
brown- tail light power
blue- right blinker
orange- left blinker

Make sure the neutral wire from the blinkers are connected on a single line to the green wire from the tail light.

I'm not sure with after market lights so if there is not a connection for the earth there may be a screw point.If you can take the lense of the light you should be able to see the connection points.
