I recently wired my shed with electricity. Code here requires a switch where power enters the shed so you can shut off power to the entire shed.
So I bought a 10A 125V Levitron single pole lev-o-let switch.
But I don't know how to wire it.
The switch has 5 screws and looks like this:
0----0 (big brass)
0--|--0 (smaller silver-ish)
--0 (smaller brass)
The "big brass" look like regular black cable screws but the wiring diagrams that came with the switch are confusing. They seem to indicate they want the hot cable (from source) going to one of the small brass screw and the hot cable going to the load attached to one of the big brass screws.... and the white cables attached to the silver-ish screws. ... So where do I put the ground? Or am I reading them totally wrong?
(zeros are the screws and the | is the switch lever)
I have 3 wires (black, white and ground) coming into the shed and the same 3 wires going to the loads in the shed.
Anyone familiar with this particular switch have any guidance? This is the switch in question:
Any help is appreciated.
