How do I connect this projector floodlight?


I just purchased this:



But it appears to not have a power cable attached to it.

So, how do I hook it up?

Thank you.

you can bring the power feed into a wetherproof box with 1/2 inch openings and than the cord will be connected 1/2 wetherproof connector which be screwed into a 1/2 inch open ing the box. Install blank cover.

Well, from the poor picture and lack of details in your post I'd say make up a cord and put it on the light.

Unless you can get a factory cord for it it will never be a "legal" UL listed light.

Where did you purchase it? Do they offer accessories?

Sorry for the stock picture. I was just using it until I took one of my own, and here it is:



I'm also very unknowledeged about electrical things, so all I know is that I need three cables to connect to the lamp and then somehow end up as a plug that I can plug into any electrical outlet (that's the goal, anyway).

They sell what is known as an appliance cord. It is a premade cord with a plug on one ends and stripped leads on the other. It is probably just the right size for that strain relief on the unit.
Those terminals should be marked for hot, neutral and ground. Or black, white and green.

If this was being mounted outside and a junction point is needed, Than I would use either a round, rect weatherproof box and sow wire from light to box.

If this going to be installed outside I would make my own cord using sow cord
