Tip 1: How to connect the switch with illumination

In some models, neon light switches provided by the manufacturer.Such switches are connected according to a certain scheme, at which it lights up when the off position, that is to break contact.Its use makes it possible not to seek switch in a dark room to the touch, and immediately see its location.Additionally, burning light also indicates that the light in the room is turned off, which is very convenient, for example, if you need to go down to the basement.
Guide
1
carry out any work with electricity, it is necessary to observe safety precautions and follow the exact diagram.If this is not done, electrical work can harm your life or health.It is better if all kinds of connections, and connections will produce a professional electrician.
2
Connect the switch with illumination possible directly from the electrical panel or from any nearest junction box.
3
Turn off the power to the panel.Make sure that it really is not.Check it needed touching each wire indicator device or a s
crewdriver (preferably with a rubber handle).
4
Connect one of the wires in the backlight switch to the common terminal and the other - to the remaining terminal.The backlight will switch off at work.
5
switch attach himself to the power supply in accordance with normal wiring, that is, catching the phase conductors to the terminals of the switch.
6
If you put energy-saving lamps, then when you turn lights will flash, as it is designed only for use with incandescent lamps.
7
qualified electrician to verify connectivity and compliance with all standards and requirements of the work performed.

Tip 2: How to make the switch with illumination

For better orientation in an apartment or in a house in the dark, it is desirable to equip the special illumination light switches.This will allow the light to see in the dark, switch and save you from searching the switch "to the touch."Make a backlight simply.
How to make the switch with illumination
you need
  • - neon lamp;
  • - current-limiting resistor to it;
  • - light 5 watts at 220 volts;
  • - to the lamp holder;
  • - LED;
  • - current-limiting resistor to it;
  • - Screwdriver;
  • - connecting wiring;
  • - duct tape.
Guide
1
backlight switch can be male or built.It can also play the role of a night light (a lamp).One condition - the backlight can not be placed in those circuits where installed energy-saving lamps.Through a chain of energy-saving lamp illumination on a small current flows, the capacitor is charged inside it, the lamp lights up briefly and then goes out.This process is repeated, that is, it starts blinking.
2
for the exterior lighting using neon lamp or incandescent bulb 5 watts at 220 volts.Assemble the circuit is connected in series with a neon lamp current-limiting resistor (the resistor define for the directory, it is highly dependent on the type of a neon lamp).Insulate the connection with a resistor bulb.Remove the switch cover.Connect the circuit breaker terminals in parallel (daisy chain switching the fixture).
3
Note: if the switch is coupled, backlight, connect to the terminals, which include outdoor lighting.Example: The light switch in the hallway and bathroom.Then plug the lights in the chain off the light in the corridor.Fix the light bulb illumination around the switch.Replace the switch cover.
4
incandescent bulbs connected in the same, only without the current limiting resistor.Attach it to the wall using a homemade bracket.Close a small lamp shade shading.
5
for built-in type LED backlight switch is used.Collect a series circuit of the LED and a current limiting resistor.The resistance of the resistor must be of the order of 200 ohms.Insulate the connection LED with resistor.
6
Remove the switch.According to the diameter of the LED make a hole in the lid.The hole should be in a place where there's space under the LED and resistor when mounted on the switch cover.Connect a LED with a resistor in parallel switch terminals.Install the switch cover with LED in place.
Note
have switches with illumination - red indication from switches - green.We offer switch on a metal frame that allows you to collect in a double frame (AHF1812) 4, 5, 6 push buttons in all cases, as well as combine switches with dimmers (regulators).
Helpful Hint
Wiring switch with illumination.In commercially available switches with illumination, but to replace the already installed and working properly, rarely meet.The circuit switch on the LED backlight and resistance.When the switch is in the "off" current passes through the resistance R1, then through the LED VD2, which glows.
