lamp ceiling installation, called chandelier is the main source of lighting in many residential areas.See the article How to choose the wall lamp.Located chandelier, usually in the middle of the ceiling, to the extent possible evenly distributed flow of light.Grips chandeliers or hanging of hook or by means of special dowels by rigid attachment, where in this case, there are two options, how to install a chandelier:

1. Attach a special bar to be contained in the design of the chandelier, to the place of supply of the power supply wires to theceiling.This strap should be made so that it can be removed using unscrewing two screws with decorative heads.After attaching the strap to the ceiling is attached the leads wear body chandeliers and tighten the screws.

on the ceilings in the old layout of the apartment, there are often large holes which previously installed hook for hanging chandeliers.In this case, just move a little attaching a special strap so that the hole for the hook shut chandeliers body after it is installed.

Exactly installing popular today budget options.chandelier installation, it is desirable not to carry out alone, but together, using a stable stepladder.

2. Several differently mounted heavy chandeliers, which can often be inserted step-down transformer.How to install a chandelier ceiling of this design is correct, we are now also a look.The design of these chandeliers is made up of two parts - the outer panel with a different number of decorated decorative electric bullets and massive base with control gear (which, incidentally, does not occur very often in recent years) and step-down transformer.First, use three or four anchors anchoring the base to the ceiling.

then connect the two supply wires.Switches the supply wires to the transformer connected to (or rather, his primary side) terminal contacts.Such contacts are easily identified visually because much thinner wires of the secondary winding.In the case of the third ground wire, connect it to the chandelier.Then we put on the base of the outer panel and fix it with the screws with decorative heads.

In this and in another case, before installing it is imperative to remove all legkobyuschiesya items - lamps, lenses, crystal reflectors.After installation and connection of the chandelier can be safely screwing or insert lamps to check their performance in all existing operating conditions.At least it has to install all legkobyuschiesya and fragile parts.

probably the easiest to install and connect the chandelier, which hangs on the hook.After the lamps are mounted on the hook, it is necessary only to connect it with the leads, lift decorative cap that conceals the electrical connection position and the hook and firmly fix the cap in this position.Then you can freely twist electric lamps and produce verification of their performance.At least there are also installed and legkobyuschiesya fragile parts.

Wiring chandeliers to the wire

How to connect the wires to the chandelier ceiling correctly

The rooms are designed in the good old Soviet times - whether it's "Leningradka", "Stalinka", "Khrushchev" or other types of apartment - chandeliers, as a ruleIt connects a lot easier than in the areas of modern buildings.Upon completion of the dismantling of the old chandelier in the middle of the ceiling is usually observed a hole for hook, and from it or around it sticks out a few wires.If you remove the cover dvuhklavishnogo switch located usually on the wall, and see that it is connected to the same number of wires sticking out of a hole in the ceiling (most often - a three-wire).See our article how to install and connect the switch open and concealed wiring.

If the wall is one-button switch, the third wire must still be somewhere close, being just a laid aside and isolated.Rather it means that the chandelier was dismantled only one lighting mode and connected it was three wires that protrude from the ceiling, only two.In older homes are often in a hallway, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and toilet from the ceiling may hang around only two wires.It means it's just that no options and have to connect the chandelier single-mode type.

However, most chandeliers, made in the Soviet Union worked with three modes of illumination:

1.Rezhim no bright light - when only the central lamp.In case if there is no central bulb in the lamp, the lamp lights up a smaller part of the side.

2.Rezhim bright moderate lighting - not working when the central light, but lit side.In the absence of a central lamp lamps lit most of the light side.

3.Rezhim full brightness - when operating at full power all the lights.

Chandelier working in three modes consists essentially of two power inlets, each of which is a group of electric fixtures, which are connected to each other in parallel.Incidentally, one of the three wire coming out of the chandelier is common for the other.In the event of a voltage between any two of the other wires and the common wire both groups start to work.

If the network is a single-phase voltage occurs between the working and zero phase.In the case of permanent connection of common wire chandeliers to the working zero supply phase through a double switch in the other two wires may be considered in this way the connection is correct.If there is a permanent connection to common wire with the phase chandeliers though through a switch on the other two wires supplied worker zero - chandelier will also be working with such a connection, but you can not call such a connection right, because it is possible electric shock to persons when necessary willreplacement of blown bulbs, as well as the switch inoperable.

So important is the need to find common wire of the three wires that protrude from the ceiling.How to do it?It is possible to consider the most effective ways:

easiest to gently dissolve the wire in the side, and then translate the two keys to switch "on" state.Picking up the indicator screwdriver alternately touch the bare ends of each of the three wires.In the case of ignition spark in the screwdriver on the two wires and the absence of the third suggests that the wiring is correct, and the third wire from the touch on the display to which the screwdriver does not light the flame, is common.

For final certainty, the administration site repair of an apartment in a new building with their hands recommends to switch off both the switch and the keys a second time to check the presence of voltage, touching the ends of the wires.If everything is OK, the indicator is nowhere to light up because the switch phase swells and opens the circuit.

indicator may also light up when you touch the bare wires at the end off and turned on the switch.Mean it may or may not entirely correct wiring and that the wire is common.

If you have any such problems, it is best to use other ways to find common wire, which may seem a little complicated, but will be more reliable.For example, you can use a multimeter, a special measuring device.It is necessary to put the device in the position in which the AC voltage is measured and converted into the operating position at least one of the switch button.

Then multimeter probes touch the bare ends of the wires one by one.Is folded towards the two wires, not peremykaya them translate the key switch into the "off", and the other - in the "on" state.Tension between the two wires that were bent to disappear.

Check the voltage between the wires marked

third remaining wire touch on one of the probes of the device, and the other probe in turn touch the ends of the two bent wires.Where there voltage at the touch and is a common wire.It must be marked in a special way.

Mark the wire marker

now remains only to find a common conductor on the chandelier.To do this, screw the bulb and turn the multimeter to measure the resistance between the ends of the three wires that go from the chandeliers.So you need to find the two wires between which is the most resistance.None of them can be shared, so as just the third wire in this case is a common wire.

After identifying the common wire, you can connect the chandelier right.Pre completely flat disable voltage and connect the terminal connector (see our article methods of connecting cables) wire chandelier with feeding ends that protrude from the ceiling.

Connect wires chandeliers via the terminal connector attached wire chandeliers via the terminal soedenitelya.

If chandeliers have an additional fourth wire (it is usually green-yellow insulation and it is the ground), so the wire will not be connected and easily isolated.Check the lamp operation after the power supply.If everything was done correctly, the chandelier should work normally.

In modern premises of the ceiling is not more likely to stick three or four wire and the fourth wire is the ground.This yellow-green wire is attached to the lamp housing through the wire of the same color, which comes out of it.Problems can arise if all four wires sticking out of the ceiling the same color - then you need to look for more and the ground wire.

To do this, you must first turn off the machine on the panel opening.Then quite a long piece of wire, one end of which is cleaned and released from isolation attach to the probe multimeter, the other stripped him and freed from the isolation valve on the end pulls the unpainted part of the battery.Put the multimeter in the resistance measurement mode and turn the probe check all four wires.Where the meter will show the resistance (which will still be very small), it is the ground wire.

How to connect the chandelier with remote control on the remote control.

Perhaps the most modern household lighting devices are chandeliers, which are equipped with a remote control.The construction of such lamps usually consists of several lamps (often LED) and a controller, which is the control device.Similar svteilniki, by the way, not only can perform the lighting function, but can serve as a timer or a multi-program tsvetomuzykalny device.These control specially supplied remote.However, for some forgetful people is seemingly undeniable advantage can turn into a disadvantage, since they constantly forget and lose the remote controls when moving from room to room.

why some lamps provided with two remote controls - in fact, remote and stationary base, which performs the search function.Install and connect the stationary base panel on a wall instead of a switch.It is necessary to use the search function and the "lost" control will be found quickly thanks to the buzzer, inserted in its design.

Now a closer look at how to connect the chandelier with a remote control to wires and switches correctly, and then see how to install a ceiling chandelier.It is easy enough for the network in the old homes are connected chandelier with only one remote control.Grounding is not necessary to be connected, it is necessary only to connect any common and the other two wires.The wire that is not connected, it is necessary to bend toward and securely isolated.

New apartments with four wires sticking out of the ceiling, and even require a ground connection of the luminaire.Wall switch can be left in its place if it is always on, or removed altogether.If clean, the two wires in place switch must be connected to each other.

However, if there is also a steady control all the same is not so difficult.For normal operation of a stationary control voltage requires two hundred and twenty volts, so you must ensure that it is such a power.First you need to turn off the power at the switchboard, to dismantle the switch on the wall, gently dissolve the sides of the ends of the wire, which was connected to the switch.

the ceiling when combined with a common one of the two remaining wires (of course, not with the ground) and power is turned on.Between the bare ends of the wires attached will be a small voltage that can be measured with a multimeter.

Check voltage with a multimeter photo voltage test with a multimeter.

wires, between which there is a voltage is connected to terminals N and L on the stationary panel and the remainder of the wire connected to the terminal "output" (however, designated it may, and on the other, it is necessary to read the instructions that came with yourchandelier).In the case of PE terminals do not need to connect it anywhere.For twin driving a ceiling wire connects one of the wires to a single - the second, and to the ground - the third ground, of course, if there is one.

controllers with remote control.

All chandelier with remote control contain the electronic controller unit.This device helps to carry too much different lighting modes including cutting off a part of the group chandeliers.Sometimes electronic controllers are sold with remote controls in retail and are relatively inexpensive, and they can be purchased separately from the chandelier.

If you change the chandeliers the wiring so that they connect through the controller, in addition, it is possible to achieve remote connection mode, you can improve the functionality of such a scheme due to the fact that it will increase the number of modes.If we dvuhklavishny switch allows you to control two branches of the circuit, the controller can control up to six branches in the average (if increasing numbers!).As an example, below is a circuit diagram of the process of connecting the chandelier, which consists of five lamps.

Since small body size of the chandelier, it's easy to hide the installation, at least in the same hole in the ceiling, which is designed for fastening the hook.Now you know how to install a ceiling chandelier correctly and how to connect the chandelier with remote control and without him too well.Remember:

All work during which it is necessary to touch the bare wires are held in the absence of voltage!
