Question about Cooper Wiring Devices Combination Switch & Receptacle
To wire the combo switch you will need to determine the hot line in the box. Once you have done that you will hook the hot wires to the gold screws on the switch or the black wires on the pictures below. The red wire will go to the switch leg white wire with tape on the second picture. Then the the white wires you will attach to the neutral screw on the first picture. That is how you will wire this switch.
A combo switch/receptacle is handy when you need both, but you only have one outlet box available. These devices come with a removable connector between the two hot terminals. When intact and wired to one hot source wire, this device can be used to turn a light off and on while the receptacle will be constantly hot.
This diagram shows the first wiring option for this device. Here the hot source comes in to the hot terminal on the receptacle and 14/2 cable runs from the device box to a light fixture. The source neutral is spliced to the receptacle and to the white cable wire going to the fixture. The output side of the switch is connected to the black cable wire running to the hot terminal on the fixture.
In this drawing below the connection tab between the hot terminals on the device is broken off allowing for wiring two separate source, one for the light and one for the receptacle. With this arrangement the switch controls a light and the receptacle outlet is constantly hot.
Source 1 comes in at the light fixture and a 14/2 loop runs to the switch half on the device. The hot from the source is spliced to the black wire on the loop and the source neutral connects directly to the fixture. At the combo device the black wire from the loop is connected to the input and the white wire is connected to the output. The cable ground wire is not used and should be taped and folded to the back of the boxes, out of the way.
Source 2 comes in at the device box where the hot and neutral wires are connected to the corresponding terminals on the receptacle half of the device.
