How to wire 4 x Slim fit LEDS to 1 x feed from ceiling

Postby rborhara » Mon Jan 25, 2021 12:14 pm

currently have a black/red and earth coming from ceiling to a temp ceiling rose.

I have purchased 4 x slim fit led lights eac having a sealed driver unit that flush fit into cladding.
the wires on the leds are like only 3 inches long and I need to distance the LEDS approx 50-75cm away from each other
what is the best way to increase the length of these wires on the LED and also how do I link or series link these LED lights to the main ceiling feed

I would suggest you use "wago connectors" to extend the flex from each "driver unit"
Then use bigger wago connectors (There is a 5 terminal version) to connect the 4 extended cables to the main lighting cable.

For each single cable join brown to brown, and blue to blue.
For all 4 to the main cable, all browns to brown (or red) and all blues to blue (or black)

Thanks, I do some more general reading and youtube on wago connectors as they do a lot of different types.

i hope 1mm thickness and 50cm cable length for each LED light bacl to the main 5 terminal wago connector is fine.
