I am trying to install a Miniliter V on 120V using the Tyco PT-15 photocell. I am confused by the "common" designated wire coming from the ballast and where the "120" ballast wire goes. Can you show a wiring diagram for this set-up? Help? Larry [email protected]
Should have said:
black & white LINE IN
black, white, and red PHOTOCELL
"120V" and "Common" from the ballast.
Just want to know how to connect
Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
Understand the situation and will try to give the best explanation and maybe a diagram will not be needed.---------------- On the ballast, the neutral connects to the "common" which is the white wire from power source. Connect the WHITE from the photocell to these whites also So 3 wires under a wire nut all together.-----------------------------The black on the ballast will connect to the RED on the photo cell.----------------Then the black on the photocell connects to the BLACK wire from power source (which is the 120 volts)
Please just reply if anything further is needed, thanks
Colors don't match as have an orange marked "120V" and a white marked "common". Wjoc
Which of these connects to the photocell red?
Orange 120 connects to the red off the photo cell. White connects to the white from power and the white on the photo cell.
sorry, in too big of a hurry.
Assume my orange "120V" ballast lead goes to photocell red?
That is what I posted, can you see my last postings?
And the white "common" lead goes to white in and photocell white
yes, correct on the whites
the black on the photo cell connects to power
Wonderful. Many thanks
you are most welcome, glad to assist
