Equip and mount a lamp

The connection

To connect a lamp, you need a plug and a socket; a switch on the power cable allows easy lighting control. The two conductors with a wired core are paired and are in the form of a flexible flat wire. The plug is used to connect the lamp. There are several different models. Here, it has two terminals in which the conductors are integrated.

The lighting

The lighting is controlled by a switch whose presence avoids plugging in and unplugging the lamp to turn it on or off. You can also mount a dimmer called "passage", due to the fact that it mounts in flexible wire cut. These devices can be controlled manually or by foot, or by infrared transmitter.
