It cannot be connected to 120 volt ... this is a 12 volt photoeye that integrates into the screw terminals on power pack.
Following link has some basic information for connecting the photoeye

SOURCE: I need to use a 220 volt battery charger on a 110

Why not just get a meter pole with a 220 outlet installed near your parking space?

SOURCE: I purchased the pr 180

Leviton PR180 is a single-pole or 3-way motion activated light switch.

The green connects to bare ground wire.
The yellow-red is not used EXCEPT to replace 3-way switch. Cap off yellow-red wire when wiring single-pole.

Your single pole switch has two black wires.
One black wire is Hot from breaker, and the other black wire goes to Load.
Turn power on, and test each black wire to bare copper wire. Tester lights up on Hot wire.

Hot wire connects to PR180 black wire.
Load wire connects to RR180 red wire

No power to band saw

Is there power at the wall outlet? If yes is it 110 or 220V depending on what it requires? If yes, check the continuity of the saws electrical cord and on/off switch.

How do I wire a dayton 400 fire place blower

It should be a simple two wire 110 volt circuit. If it has a fan cycling switch on it, the hot wire goes into and out of the switch on the way to the motor while the neutral goes straight to the power source white wire. If no fan cycling switch, the two wires of the motor just wire to the cord plugging into the wall...(or wired directly into the 110 volt circuit in the wall outlet box.

How to wire in an on-off switch for ceiling light from power source going to living room.

Pretty easy if you can get the wires from the existing wall outlet. Just run a wire from existing outlet to the where you want the new light. Install inside an approved ceiling electrical outlet box and then run another wire to where you want the switch or switches. If you go to home depot or the library you can look at the books with diagrams on how to wire it. You can skip the wall switch if you use a light with a pull chain.

Wire 110 to 220

If you have a 110 volt appliance, all switches , wiring and components are made especially to handle that voltage. If you feed 220 to 240 volts into it, most certainly the machine will be unsafe and likely fail in a very short time. Purchase a step down transformer to reduce your supply voltage to 110. Most good electrical parts stores should be able to supply this.

I need a replacement photoelectric switch for my outdoor Renaissance lamp model HB9902-98

The unit has motion-sensor/ photo eye capability built in.
There are no replacement parts for this type of device. Or long-term warranty.
The solution that comes to mind immediately is to rewire unit to by-pass the sensor, then install astro dawn-dusk wall timer in place of light switch.
Or install round box extension on the wall box, and wire up separate photo-eye mounted in the box extension.

How do you connect a photo cell to a 220v HID fixture?

You can connect photo eye white wire to ground wire, and it will work, since each hot wire in 240V circuit carries 110V to ground.
But this installation is not code.
It is not necessarily dangerous if you are only person working on electric circuits, and you remember what you did, and don't work inside main box without turning off power.

See illustrations.

Running a White neutral wire from nearby outlet is best solution.

Or buy 240Volt photo eye.

I have an electric box in my bathroom. This box has one cable coming in (one black and one white wire) and powers a light switch and a GFCI plug. My wall had a leak and fried the GFCI so I bought a new...

You have a combo light switch and GFCI.

It sounds like you are 1 wire short.
Where is the wire that goes to the light?
The black wire should be Hot, the white wire could be the Neutral or the could be the wire going to light.
The Black hot wire connects to dark-colored or brass screw on one side of device. This screw should be labeled Line.
You need a white Neutral line that connects on silver-colored screw that is located opposite where black wire connected.

The switch controls a light ... but you need another wire going to the switch.

Diagramed instructions of how to use an existing 110 outlet and make another outlet/lightswitch
The link above shows basic wiring plan for adding a switch
The switch always turns the Hot wire on-and-off.
When selecting wire size, use same size that connects to plug
So if plug has a yellow-sheathed cable, then use #12 wire
If plug has white sheathed cable, use #14 wire
#14 is smaller wire than #12

Most RV places should be able to get you one of those switches. It just transfers 110 VAC power.
If your stuck with no AC in hot weather , there is a way to test continuity & wire one direct, (or both) just to get you by. Perhaps an electrical supply place would have a wall type switch, that would do same job. Some are rotate like switch, others are like regular wall switch in appearance.
