15 Popular 3 3, Switch Wiring Ideas - The energy source is thru the switch field sb1 and a 3-cord cable (c1) runs from there to the primary fixture (f1). , 2-cord cables (c3 and c4) run among the fixtures, and a three-wire cable (c2) runs from the second one fixture (f2) to the second three way transfer (sw2).
The left of the photograph (light grey historical past) is what i have set up to date. The proper is what is current. I now comprehend there is no neutral to go to the ordinary transfer from the three manner switch because it gets used as hot.
The energy, cable c1, joins the circuit on the mild fixture f1. Right here the neutral connects to the mild f1 and is spliced via to mild f2. The new from the electricity supply is spliced thru each fixtures and terminates on the not unusual terminal of sw1 via cable c3.
The hot source is hooked up to the commonplace terminal of sw1. The impartial is spliced to the white cord feeding the primary fixture, via cable c1,where it's far spliced to the neutral of both lighting. The traveler wires from the 2 switches pass immediately via the fixtures thru cable c3.
Connect the power source cable only to this new cable (black to black, white to white). Flip the diagram for the formerly present circuit left-to-proper, and energy the three-manner from the second one junction field in preference to the primary. The hot from the power supply (cable c1) connects to the not unusual terminal of the primary 3-manner switch (sw1) and the impartial is spiced, inside the switch box sb1, via to the second 3-manner transfer (sw2) through the 3 wire cable (cable c2, that still consists of the travelers that connect the 2 switches) wherein it's miles spliced via to the primary fixture (f1) and connects with the neutral of each light. In the identical manner, the recent from the commonplace terminal of the 3-manner transfer sw2 connects to the recent terminal on each light through cable c3 (spliced in fixture f1). I advocate you run a 2-twine cable from the first (leftmost) junction container directly to the second junction box. This cable does now not ought to bypass near the present light furniture, nor does it want to run near the existing cables.
