Radial circuit light wiring diagram | Light wiring
Fig 1 shows what is referred to as a radial circuit (sometimes called a ‘loop-in’ or ‘multi-point radial lighting circuit’). Fig 1: multi point (loop-in) radial lighting circuit The light wiring diagram shows how the live feed from the Consumer unit (fuse board, shown in blue in Fig 1)

Loop-In WiringRadial (or Junction Box) WiringVery Useful Tip!!Important NoteOld WiringPicture 1 shows the basic principle of wiring a loop-in lighting system (the most modern/common). The power from the mains consumer unit runs into each ceiling rose and out again, then on to the next ceiling rose. The switch cable and the flex to the lighting fitting are connected at the ceiling rose - examples of the wiring found at ceiling roses on loop-in installations are given on this page - Loop-in circuits.See more on practicaldiy

How to understand lighting circuits | Ideas & Advice | DIY
How to understand lighting circuits. Introduction. though individual circuits often combine the two for the most economical use of cable. Unlike power circuits, lighting circuits are always of the radial type: A lighting circuit is protected by a 5- or 6-amp fuse or circuit breaker.
IET Forums - Why do lighting circuits have to be radial?
Wiring lighting circuits (as a ring circuit) in general domestic installations would be troublesome and adding unnecessary complications. A standard radial circuit can be extended from any point or points that provide a permanent live, neutral and earth without worries about having a spur off a spur or extending the ring.IET Forums - What is the lowest size breaker you canIET Forums - branching off radial circuitsIET Forums - when will radial circuits take over from ringIET Forums - How many luminaires on a 6A 1 lightingSee more results
