Timer Light Switch Wiring Diagram:
This diagram shows how to make a timer light switch wiring diagram. In this circuit, we use an SP MCB ( Single Pole Miniature Circuit Breaker ), SPST Switch ( Single Pole Single Throw ), a timer, and a light. First, we need to input the phase line to the SP MCB, then input the phase line to the timer, switch, and light like in our diagram. Then input a neutral connection to the timer and light. 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 Timer Light Switch Wiring:
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.
02. SPST Switch:
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.
A timer is a type of time-switching device that controls and controls electrical circuits and electrical and electronic devices through time setting (on/off). The timer is basically 8-pin. Like other controlling devices the timer has a coil and when this coil is magnetized, the timer works on/off. The timer has two common ends and each common end has normally close and normally open options. When the timer is set by time, the timer trips at the end of that time and turns the common’s normally closed (on) to open (off) and normally open (off) to close (on). This is how the timer works.
04. CFL Light:
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.
