Photocell Wiring Diagram:
This diagram shows how to make photocell connections. Photocell wiring diagram. In this circuit, we use a day-night sensor, a light, an SP MCB ( Single Pole Miniature Circuit Breaker ), and a switch. First, we need to input phase connection to the SP MCB, then input phase connection to switch and day night sensor and light, then input neutral connection to day night sensor & light. If you want to know more about this circuit please check our youtube video below the post.

Components used to make the Photocell Wiring Diagram:
CFL stands for Compact Fluorescent Lamp which is an improved version of tube lights of earlier days. Like tube lights, it is a vacuum glass tube with fluorescent powder coating which is not as long and straight as tube lights but curved/twisted compact, or small in size. Like a tube light, it has electrodes or filaments at both ends. But in this case, instead of a choke, there is an electronic circuit that drives the Compact Fluorescent Lamp. Because the red wave is less in the light of the Tubelight and Compact Fluorescent Lamp, the object looks a little pale or the correct color of the object does not appear.
02. SP MCB:
In single-pole MCB, Switching & Protection is Affected in only one Phase. Single phase supply to break the phase only. A single Pole breaker is Typically used with 120-volt Circuits, 15-20 amps. They are constructed with one Hot Wire and one Neutral wire. An SP switch is the most basic General-Purpose switch that you use to Control a light or another device from one location. These Switches have two Brass-Colored screw Terminals Connected to the hot Power source wires. Pole refers to the number of Circuits Controlled by the Switch SP Switches Control only one Electrical Circuit.
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.
04. Day Night Sensor:
Photocells and Motion Sensors are Electronic Devices you can use to Manage Indoor or Outdoor Lighting. The Main Difference Between Photocells and Motion Sensors is that the Former Detects change in light Levels, and The Latter React to Physical Movement. Movement in the Detection area Changes the Reflected Signals and Activates the Sensor. They also save Energy by Turning Themselves off when Light is Unnecessary. Many Motion Sensors use a Combination of Detection Methods to Provide enhanced Coverage and eliminate false positives. The adjustable timers built into some Sensors let you Control how long the Attached Lights Remain Active after it Detects Motion.
