Optolamp wiring

Recommended Posts

IT. I am wiring up an optolamp i got off you. I thought i was going to be able to use the all round white as a steaming light as well as anchor but the 3 way switch supplied allows only tri or anchor not both together. Could i wire the 2 grey wires on seperate switches so as to use both at once? I am not interested in the strobe.

No, sorry, that's not what possible. The two greys are anchor (all round white) with the polarity one way, and tricolor with polarity the other way. The third wire is only used for strobe. Plus you are required to have sidelights min 1m below a steaming light, which cannot be done from one fixture....
