BEFORE DISCONNECTING EXISTING FITTING , ONE OF YOUR BLACKS
IS SWITCH WIRE AND SHOULD BE TAGGED RED. THIS GOES TO BROWN OF NEW FITTING . THE OTHER BLACK IS NEUTRAL THIS GOES TO
BLUE OF FITTING.
EARTHS TO GETHER IN BLOCK AND CONNECT EARTH OF FITTING TO
THIS BLOCK.
TWO REDS ARE PERMANENT LIVES AND NOT BE CONNECTED TO FITTING.
PUT IN CONNECTOR BLOCK AND TAPE UP.
