Plugging In

Just got one of these lights, looks awesome and it nearly blinded me testing it! :D

 

The light it is replacing has one plug which I plug into a timer. This new light has two plugs so I was wondering how I should go about connecting them both to the timer?

 

The timer is already in a extension 6-gang cable so I am not sure if connecting a double socket to that would cause overloads and is maybe not safe?

 

Thanks and sorry if this is basics :)

A sockets maximum load is 13Amp so that’s around 3000w maximum.

Cant help with your other questions :smokin:

@MidlandGrow Thanks!

 

I think it will be fine then as all of the devices don't add up to that, I was worried that by adding an extension to the 6-gang (effectively making it a 7-gang) it would over load it.

For future searchers. Google below if you want less plugs.

Just make sure you tin/crimp any stranded wire ends, if you dont reuse the ones we supplied.
