## Staircase wiring circuit diagram, OR How to control a lamp from two different places by two ,2-way switches?

Staircase wiring circuit diagram very simple

This is the staircase wiring circuit diagram. Here we can control a bulb from two different places by using two, 2-way switches.
Now consider this circuit diagram. In this case you can see that circuit is complete and bulb is ON. Suppose you want to OFF bulb from the upper switch at top of stair, simply Switch OFF the switch then circuit will break and the bulb will be OFF. You can switch ON the bulb again to switch ON this Switch. In other words you can OFF and ON bulb from upper switch at the top of stair. Obviously; you can do same from the upper and bottom switch, so let’s see how we can do that from that switch at the bottom of stair.
Now return to circuit again in the pic, In this case you can see that circuit is complete and bulb is ON. Suppose you want to OFF the bulb from the lower switch at bottom of stair. Simply OFF the switch, then again circuit will break and the bulb will be OFF. You can switch ON the bulb again to switch ON this Switch
Conclusion:
This is a stair case circuit diagram by which we can control a bulb from two different places.We can switch OFF and Switch ON the bulb from both switches at the same time. in other words we can control (OFF or ON) the bulb from upper and lower switches.

## Different Types of Wiring Systems and Methods of Electrical Wiring

Methods of Wiring And Different Types of Wiring Systems  Methods of Electrical Wiring Systems w.r.t …

1. plzz xplain this diagrams….

• Ronak Patel @ OK… We will add some description and simple explanation.

• thanxxx …..

2. hey Wasim khan plzz add description immediately yar…….

• Ronak Patel@ DONE

3. THNXXX.. BRO…

• Hello sir I am Tarun wason from bhiwani Haryana . I an looking for electrical job i am completed diploma in electrical engineering . I am very work harder i give best in my work so please give me job

4. i also hav a same dia. but it look diffent frm urs

• Lets share with us…thanx

5. THE DIAGRAM SHOWS A CONDUIT ENCLOSED PVC SINGLES STYLE WIRING IN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT WOULD BE TYPICALLY WIRED WITH TWIN AND EARTH CABLE, WHICH IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. I WOULD ARGUE THAT THIS DIAGRAM WOULD CONFUSE A D.I.YER.

• No Dear…Don&#39;t Confuse with that kind of wring diagrams…<br />Its is not a layout…it is just a typical wiring diagram… So you can connect with earth cable..it is just showing only stair-case wiring diagram. not the whole wiring.

• hy sir,my name is rao farhan am a diploma holder.now am working in dubai so i want to chang compani if you have ele tech job so plz tell me my uae exp is 3 year my number is 0552714041

6. that method is outdated and we now use 3core and earth run between the two 2way switches,which means there is a single run of twin and earth from the ceiling rose(that is your feed and switch wire and an earth conductor to the first 2way switch,feed to l1,switch on l2,the 2way switches are then joined by 3core and earth…doing it the way shown can be to be done in conduit

• that&#39;s is not matter what kind of wire to be use 3 core or single wire the important is you know how to connect 2 way switch to ceiling rose or splicing it using electrical tape.

7. cool story bro, needs more dragons and shit<br />

8. Amazing Wiring..

9. sir i want to control stair bulb from 1st floor and from ground floor. 3 pin switches(at 1st floor and at ground floor) are already attached to board but i don&#39;t know how to connect wires.<br /><br />note:- there are 3 pins in the backside of the switch

• Use the above Diagram

10. I want to know if this idea can be implemented using logic diagram or rather built in the lab using bread board, logic gates or IC&#39;s. If there is any idea, please post the dia and description<br />

11. Damn thanks a lot, I couldn&#39;t figure this out.

12. Depending upon the prerequisites, men and women can place numerous buttons in addition to <a href="http://www.retrotouch.co.uk/&quot; rel="nofollow">screwless light switch</a> sockets on top of a utility circuit. You should do a few likely to ascertain wherever you should have these individuals previous to purchasing that.

13. The Diagrams are great, very informative. I just wanted to may be help clarify something with you. The switches in your diagrams are not 2way switches. they are 3way switches. There are 3 possible directions for current to go. If you go to get one from a parts store the box will also say 3 way switch. Hope this helps.

14. when we have two lamps and 3 two way switches how we design it

15. this helped me with physics homework 🙂

16. Way to spend three paragraphs talking in circles in order to explain how to use a light switch before introducing a diagram of a three way switching system &amp; referring to it as two way.

17. This is the perfect way to break down this marination.

18. Ridip Hazarika

If I keep both the switch ON; will the bulb glow?

19. Lucky Joestar

Paul:

“Three-way” is the North American term for this type of switch. Most English-speaking countries call them “two-way.” The term for the pair of wires connecting the two switches also varies: “strappers” to the Brits and “travelers” to us Yanks.
