After mounting the strip, de-energize the line by turning off the machine in the shield. Now you can do the connection of wires coming out of the ceiling. First you need to carefully straighten them and level them in size. Then do not overdo it, strip them from the end by one and a half centimeters. If the wires are the same color, you need to find the phase. In the event that the three conductors exit and you previously had a two-key switch, one of the phases will have to be insulated, and the switch replaced with a one-key. How to find the phase can be found in our article. We spread the wires to the sides, turn on the machine and look for the phase. We mark phase conductors with a marker or felt-tip pen, and then turn off the machine again.
On the upper chandelier bowl there is a control unit and a plastic terminal for connecting the cores. Three colors of wire are usually suitable for the terminal: blue or black (N), brown or red (L), yellow-green (PE). Lead wires must be connected to terminals (L) phase and (N) zero. The terminal (PE) is not used in old houses.
