Fluorescent Light Wiring:

This diagram shows how to make Tube Light Connection. In this circuit, we use a fluorescent tube light, a ballast choke, a tube light starter, and a switch. First, we need to input the phase line to the switch, then input power to the ballast from the switch, then connect the tube lightly with the phase and neutral line like in our circuit diagram. Now this circuit is ready for use. If you want to know more about this circuit please check our youtube video below the post.

Components used to make the Fluorescent Light Wiring:

01. Tube Light:

The structural element of the tube light is an airtight glass tube which is commonly called a sealed glass tube. This tube is airtight. The tube fills with a small amount of mercury. Also contains an inert gas (usually argon). The tube inside is also coated with phosphorus. That’s why it looks white. There are two electrodes at both ends of the tube which can create an electric field between them. These two electrodes are again connected to an electrical circuit. Electrical This circuit usually consists of a starter switch and ballast. This circuit is connected to our AC supply. The difference between ordinary incandescent bulbs and fluorescent bulbs (which we call tube lights) is the process of activating or exciting the atoms. In normal bulbs, the atoms are activated by heating. And in fluorescent bulbs, this is done through accelerated chemical reactions.

02. Light Starter:

The initial starting phase of the functioning of fluorescent tubes and lamps is aided by the employment of fluorescent starters or glow starters. Fluorescent starters are essentially timed switches. The switch is opened and shut repeatedly until the fluorescent tube “strikes,” turning on. The switch resumes its cycle of opening and closing, and if the fluorescent tube still does not light, it makes another effort.

03. Ballast Choke:

After the starter, the important component responsible for lighting the tube light is the ballast. The primary role of the ballast in a tube light system is as a current regulator and illuminant. This ensures adequate voltage and waveform supply to the tube light. The type of ballast we used to see in old-fashioned tube light systems is actually an electrical ballast that preheats the tube light. Ballast means balancing. Basically the tube light system also ballast plays the role of a balancer. It stabilizes the current and voltage. If a tube light is connected directly to the main line without this ballast, excessive current will flow through the tube light. As a result, the tube light will be destroyed almost immediately.


An SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) Switch is a Switch That only Has a Single Input and can Connect Only to one Output. This means it Only Has one Input Terminal and Only one Output Terminal. A Switch is a Mechanical or Controlling Device That Changes the Flow of Current Direction or Interrupts the Flow of Current Within a Circuit. Single Pole Single Throws (SPST) is Perfect for on-off switching. When the SPST is closed, the Circuit is Closed and the light from the lamp switches on. When The Single Pole Single Throw (SPST) is then opened, the light from the lamp goes out and the Circuit is off.
