Bright Source All in One wiring block

Postby Ian56 » Mon Mar 22, 2021 4:34 pm

New member of the group and first post so please forgive me if it's a bit basic. I had downlights fitted throughout my house and my electrician used Bright Source All in One as they were plug & play so in theory easy to replace. The problem I have is that the units have been upgraded a couple of times since mine were installed meaning they don't "plug & play" and the units need a certain amount of re-wiring. I've managed this previously where the replacement units wires were held in place with a retaining screw but the latest units have a different housing (see picture). To me, it looks like the white plastic lugs should be either pushed closed to "trap" the wires or pulled up then released to do so - however neither of these secure the wires. Apologies if this appears a daft question but I would appreciate any assistance - thanks in advance.

This is the block into which the 6 wires have to be secured (3 + 3).

Hi ian56
If you are using solid wires the should just push into the terminal block but you may have to push down the white button depending on the size of the wire. If you have multi strand cables you will have to hold down the white button while inserting the cable.

Stonyboy - job done, thanks very much for your assistance. I suspect the terminal block on the unit I tried previously was faulty but by following your instructions with a new one it was a relatively straightforward exercise. Thanks again.
