The light is wired the same as any voltage fixture. Bring the source voltage to the fixture and connect it to the two fixture wires. If you want to control the off-on of the fixture take the source voltage to a switch first and then out of the switch to the light fixture.

Can you use 10ga wire for 220 volts?

Yes a #10 wire can be used on 220 volts as long as the insulation on the wire is rated for 300 volts or higher.

How will a 3 phase panel give you 110 volts and 220 volts?

A three phase panel will not give you 110 and 220 volts. A three phase four wire panel will, but not at these voltages. The nearest voltages will be 120 and 208 volts. The 120 volt is the wye voltage of 208 volts. 208/1.73 = 120 volts. A single phase three wire panel will give you 110 and 220 volts.

How do you change a 220v wire to a 110v wire?

When you talk about a 220 volt wire and 110 volt wire, the reference is to the insulation factor of the wire. The amount of amperage that the wire has a capacity to carry is independent to the amount of voltage that can be imposed on the wire. When you see wire with ratings of 300 volts, 600 volts and 1000 volts, these are the highest allowable voltages that can be impressed without going over the manufacturers recommendation of allowable voltages. A wire that is rated for 300 volts indicates that the wire is rated for 120 volts or 240 volts or 277 volts. At test research facilities, equipment is tested to destruction. The maximum voltage rating, that is given to the wire as a result of these tests, is the highest safest voltages that can be applied to that particular type of insulation material. So if you hear an electrician say a wire is good for 110 or 220 volts, what is meant is that the same wire can be used for either 110 or 220 volts. To answer the question, you don't need to change a 220 volt wire to a 110 volt wire because it is good for both voltages.

How do you wire 220 volts to a 110 light switch?

i am an techniction and i know that is no difference between 220 and 110 volt switches.only you should check the ampers of lightes and max amp of switches.

How do you add a neutral wire for 220 volts?

Standard wiring for 220 volts which is also referred to as 240 volts, commonly has four wires. One is red, one is black, one is white and one is a bare copper wire. The red and black wire carry 120 volts each, the white wire in usually your neutral which hooks up to your ground along with the bare wire.

How do you wire a 220v dryer to run on 110?

You can't. A 220 volt dryer requires 220 volts in order to operate properly. It will not run on 110 volts.

What wire do you use for a 220 v ac receptacles?

Wire with an insulation rating factor of 300 volts.

How do you wire 110 to 220 outlet for a stove?

You can't. If the stove requires 220 volts to operate, you will need 220 volts at the outlet first. 220v will also require at least a 30amp breaker.

Why you use 110 volts instead of 220 volts?

your amperage goes down so you can use smaller wire

What gauge wire for 220 volts?

You need to know the amperage to size the wire. For 220 V at 20 A you would need 12 AWG. At 220 V at 30 A 10 AWG.

Why do western country uses 110 volts instead of 220 volts?

Europe uses 220/240 volts, USA and Canada use 110/120 volts. The lower voltage is less dangerous if you touch a live wire.

How is 110 volts and 220 volts measured?

With a voltmeter Keep volt meter terminal on phase and neutral wire and it will show the exact volatage
