  3. Thanks..

  4. i am unable to get the application of series and parallel lamp switch..

  5. Really i too why one should use this parellel combination manes..<br />

  6. Hi! My old house had a light switch arrangement that still has me curious about its workings! Perhaps you can illuminate us with a schematic and/or explanation!<br /><br />We had a light above the stairs, with a switch upstairs, and a switch downstairs. Either switch, when flipped, no matter whether the light was on or off, would turn the light on if it was off, and off if it was on. Can you

    • Sounds to me like you have incorrect polarity. Using a very basic example, it means you negative and positive are the wrong way around. (Negative to positive and positive to negative). Try looking at your switches and make sure the live goes to live and the negative goes to negative. Hope this helps.

    • What you’re describing is a simple 3 way circuit. Nothing wrong with it at all. It requires a special kind of switch and a “traveler” wire between the two of them to work.

      Note that it is NOT a parallel or series circuit. It is a 3 way circuit.

  7. i need design of my newly construct room with singly phase required connections as below:<br /><br />main panel contain 1 Fan Switch , 3 Bulb Switch 3 different points, at least 4 sockets required on main panel.<br /><br />2nd panel required for my Computer containing 6 sockets with 2 switches.<br /><br />3rd for electrical iron.<br /><br />kindly suggest me the basics of electrical wiring or

  8. I think it only for concept building otherwise no use of this circuit configuration


  10. what happen if we switch on both switches at a time

  11. what will happen if the two switches are in ON state
