3 way circuit wiring diagram - in the following diagram we show power entering switch 1 from switch 1 to the light and from the light to switch 2 in this case you will need a 3 wire from switch 1 to the light and the light to switch 2 3 way switch multiple lights this diagram shows how to connect a three way switch with power ing into the first switch then to the second then on to two or more lights option 3 fixture between two three way switches power through switch light is controlled by two three way switches with the light between the switches and the power first going through a switch then to the light and onto the second three way switch here is a two way switching solution posted for one of our users who had run the power feed to one of the switch boxes and had no radial circuit to pick up a neutral at the l holder how to wire a 3 way switch wiring a 3 way switch is a little more tricky than wiring a 2 way switch.
first of all we need to go over a little basic terminology on switches a circuit diagram electrical diagram elementary diagram electronic schematic is a graphical representation of an electrical circuit a pictorial circuit diagram uses simple images of ponents while a schematic diagram shows the ponents and interconnections of the circuit using standardized symbolic representations once we reach the last light you can see that there is only the feed from ceiling rose b fig 1 this is cable a in the diagram below fig 3 which show how the last ceiling rose in the circuit is terminated 3 way switch wiring diagram 2 above shows the electric circuit power source es into the light fixture box the white wire of the cable wiring is marked with black electrical tape and is similarly to a simple one way lighting circuit the neutral is taken straight to the light itself while the line conductor.
is fed through a series of switches before reaching the light the 3 way lighting circuit which is often referred to as the two way and intermediate lighting circuit is a mon arrangement usually found in large houses
