Is this switch rated for direct aluminum wire termination.

Asked by Jack April 14, 2021
1
Answer

If you check the manufacturers installation instructions, they specify the use of copper or copper-clad wire only. Aluminum requires a much larger diameter (almost twice the size) to carry the same current as copper. If the existing wiring is aluminum, I would consider a rewire with copper; it is smaller, lighter, and more compatible with products offered today.

1500w÷ 120v = 12.5amp so you are well under 15amp rating.

Certainly. Just because it's made for higher voltages, 110 V or 120 V, that doesn't mean it won't work at the lower voltages used for speakers.

screw torque chart for single pole switch

Asked by REG August 21, 2019
4
Answers

Generally, screws of this size are not supplied with a specified torque, because most people don't have an appropriate torque wrench. Also, you have not specified whether you are talking about the terminal screws or the mounting screws. I assume you are talking about the terminal screws. I sympathize with your lack of torque spec, and I agree that it should be specified for best results, but I doubt that any electrician ever uses a torque wrench for these. You might be able to find the torque spec if you go to the manufacturer's website, but even there it's doubtful that they will supply it.

This product is NOT rated 277V per the manufacturer.

I use it on 120 volt lines. I have no problems with it switching LED lighting.

Do these switches work with LED light fixtures or bulbs?

Asked by Curiousone July 1, 2018

Answers

The other problem with non led compatible switches are that they bleed a small amount of electric. I do have Leviton switches that do not fully shut off led lights. In a dark background you will see that they stay lit. Like led rope lights or led string lights. A standard 120 volt on off switch can bleed 2.5 volts that can allow led lights to glow.

Had to change out my light switch and this switch saved the day. Easy to install, as long as you know what you are doing if not I recommend getting a professional. Switched out the old one put this one in and my lights once again came back to life. Looks and feels well made and the price is unbeatable. Overall I recommend!

This is a single pole switch. It is used when you want to turn a single light on and off (or fan or other electrical device). It is a very simple switch to install. Of course, always turn the power off to this location prior to starting. If you are replacing an existing switch, you will just use the wires that are already in the box. You hook the ground (green wire) to the green screw. There will also be two black wires. It doesn't matter which one goes where. You can hook either wire to either (non-green) screw. That's all there is to it.

I purchased these to update the dark brown switches in my new (older) home. They work great so far (1 month). However, make sure the switch cover plate you purchase is large enough to cover the entire hole that was cut in the sheetrock. I made a return trip to HD to exchange the “standard” sized plates for midsized.
