Fixtures are anything that is in a permanent position. Fixtures is a word used to describe faucets, sinks, toilets, permanent lights, etc.
You probably blew the breaker for the lights. While usually the lights and outlets in a room are on the same breaker, it isn't always done that way. And you may have blown the light bulbs in the lights.
how do i find a short in my head lights ,tail lights work but not my head lights
No, the fluorescent fixtures that are installed in dropped ceilings are also know as recessed lighting.
Should be fine if that is all that is on the breaker.
It would be quite unusual to have a single 60 amp circuit with outlets and lights. You would have to use very heavy wire to each light and outlet. Typical lighting circuits would be protected by 15 amp breaker and a circuit with general purpose receptacles would have a 20 amp breaker. A typical lighting circuit might have 10 to 12 fixtures and receptacle circuit might have 8 outlets. If you don't know how to size a circuit get an electrician.
You want to size for 80% or rated current. In this case 16 amps. At 110 volts nominal this is a total of 1760 watts for incandescent bulbs. So if you had 100 watt bulbs you could have 17 100 watt fixtures. Of other wattage fixtures just divide into 1760 watts.
A reputable website that specializes in antique fixtures is www.oldhouselights.com. They offer restored and ready to use antique light fixtures.
The basic fluorescent light fixture is AC, although there are fluorescent lights powered by DC.
I really need more detailed information to answer your question. How many lights were added and what wattage bulbs are being used? For a 15-amp breaker, the maximum wattage it would handle would be around 1650 watts. This would be about 16 100-watt bulbs. Does your breaker trip immediately when you turn the light switch on? If you have an ohmmeter you can check the tripped breaker. Put one lead on the black "hot" wire coming from the breaker. Remember, the breaker must be off. Then put the other lead on the ground bar. If the ohm reading is very low, close to 2 ohms, then you have a direct short to ground somewhere in your wiring.
Bad switch. Open wiring between switch and lights.
A 20 amp circuit at 120 volts will handle 2,400 watts. But you should never load a circuit over 80%. 20A@120 volts = 2400 watts x 80% = 25 lights of 75 watts each. If each fixture has 2 lights then only install 12.
Fluorescent light fixtures are generally used in the kitchen, probably due to the efficiency of energy use of the flourescent lights, but they can be mounted practically everywhere.
There are many varieties of wireless light fixtures requiring battery operation, of which some are remote control operated. Many of these lights use LED bulbs.
How much a person knows about LED High Bay lights will depend upon the person. The LED HIgh Bay lights come in different varities such as canopy lights, fixtures, and car lights.
The circuit breaker is self resetting. you may have a short in the wiring.
Go up to the switch and press the "A" button. That should turn on the lights.
It is a relay or switch problem. A circuit breaker or fuse won't keep a light on.
about 5 lights to a circuit breaker in the circuit
No, bedroom lights fixtures do not have to be on arc fault breakers. In fact it is better if they are not. The neutral should return straight back to the distribution panel, for the arc fault circuit that the neutral is in. In some jurisdictions an electrical code amendment requires that the cable fed from arc fault breakers be identified with a blue outer sheath.
Yes. But by constantly throwing the breaker handle back and forth will eventually loosen the mechanical parts inside the breaker to the point where the breaker will fail. There are breakers made for the purpose of switching, usually used in big warehouses to shut off banks of lights. The price of one breaker is probably equal to the price of about 10 standard light switches.
