Lighting Circuits – Loop In, Loop Out This is a form of parallel wiring that has one cable (usually twin and earth 6242Y) containing the live, neutral and earth wires looping in and then out of leach light fitting.
Keeping this in consideration, what is the loop terminal for?
The loop terminal is used purely for a termination of a non/switched cable. Ie not active. Some light fittings will have a loop terminal that you would put the active in. Some sparkys prefer to solder wires together in walls, as it offers a better connection (reliable) than a screwed connection.
One may also ask, what happens if you wire a light switch wrong? If either wire at the light fixture is still hot then the switch is wired incorrectly. If one of the wires is still hot at the light fixture with the switch in the off position, then you most likely have the light switch on the neutral wire. Separate the bare ends of the wires so you can safely turn the power back on.
Also asked, what is a loop in electrical wiring?
Electrical looping is loop/loops created between two light with 1 single wire connected to multiple fittings. Usually looping is done for neutral wire. Neutral wire is a return wire for the current in an electrical circuit. This loping of wire done inside the house is called as internal looping.
What color is the loop wire?
2 Wiring for end of loop If the light fitting you have purchased has two cores – live (brown) and neutral (blue) connect the live to the switch live terminal and neutral to the neutral terminal. If the fitting has an earth core, it must be sleeved with a yellow and green coat and connected to the Earth terminal.
