Hi guys I'm wiring up a light in my back garden. Cable from the house : brown, blue, yellow/ green. Fine, understand that. Cable from the light: red, brown, blue. The red and blue have a white cable with them. I've never seen this before. Please someone assure me I'm not being dumb and tell me what to do. Thanks Steve
I appreciate you are asking for guidance as to what the white wires are for, but as it is up to the manufacturer* what colour they use for what, it is not possible for a person on any forum to furnish you with the information you seek. I there for suggest you read the instructions, or contact the maker of afore mentioned light fitting and ask them. I should point out that there is the slight possibility the white wires are not actual wires, but packers for the cable to keep it in shape.
