Q:What is the difference between a standard on/off switch and a 3-way switch on your Dual Linear CCF lights?
A:The 3-way switch is only used on red/white lensed lights. Therefore the part number must start with I5TR in order to use a 3-way switch. All other switched light styles use the standard on/off switch.
you explain the CCF Light part numbering scheme?
CCF Light part numbers (Single Linear, Dual Linear, 6” Round, and Reading
lights) are all eight digits long, made up of alpha-numeric characters.
Each unique character tells you something about the type of light.
See below for a part numbering legend.
new CCF lights look like they have a “pinkish” tone to them? Is something
CCF lights will glow with a “pinkish” tone for the first few minutes of
operation. Once the lights reach their normal operating temperature
this “pinkish” color will disappear forever. This only occurs the
first time you use a new CCF light.
do I do with the blue wire on my lights?
If you are not using a Taylorbrite dimmer you should connect the blue wire
directly to the power wire (red or orange color) or you can wire it to
an on/off switch for external switching capabilities. If you are using
a Taylorbrite dimmer, the blue wire should be wired to the dimmer.
are the two white wires on the dimmer for and what do I do with them?
you are not using a three way switch, the white wires should be left unconnected.
Take care to protect the individual wire ends with a wire nut or electrical
tape, so they cannot touch each other. Do not wire the two white wires
together.If you are using a three way switch system, the two white wires
should be wired to the switch.
much power do Taylorbrite lights draw? What is their light output?
Taylorbrite lights are energy efficient and draw very little power.
Please see each light’s unique specifications listed on the website, under
the Product Catalog page.
many lights can be run off of one dimming module?
to 20 lights per dimmer.
I mount my Taylorbrite lights outside?
lights are weather resistant, but cannot be fully exposed to the elements.
Therefore, we recommend mounting your lights under a radar arch or bimini
top for outside applications.
