Wiring Intermatic Mechanical switch for pool lights

Postby sbsmonkeyman » Sun Nov 04, 2007 9:29 pm

I am wiring up an Intermatic T101 Mechanical time switch to automate my pool lights. I raplaced an existing outdoor light switch. I have identified the load and line wires. The load wires are the standard black (hot), white (neutral) and green. The line wires are from a GFCI outlet and there are 4: White (N), Orange (N), yellow (hot), green. 110 volts passes yellow to orange and yellow to white, 0 volts white to orange. I don't know what to do with the extra neutral wire. I have attached the wiring diagram for the switch. Any help is appreciated! thanks.

Hi, I don't think we should answer this on here as you are obviously 'State-side' & although I know a GFCI is what we call an RCD, your wiring colours are totally different from european standards as is voltage, orange for instance not used/allowed this side of the pond, try to find a U.S. site to repost, sorry
