220V home wiring code

851 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Oso954

Just moved into an apartment in the Caribbean and it is wired with European outlets and wiring.

I have a simple light fixture ( non dimming single phase) but the wires are White, Black and Green.

Which wires should I match up with the ones coming out of the box on the ceiling.

The wire colours coming out of the ceiling are Black, Blue and Green/Yellow. I have access to 220V bulbs.

Thanks a bunch!

Thanks so much guys! Wish me luck.
I noticed that the wire from the ceiling (220) appears to be a bit thicker( eg. Solid) when compared to that of the fixture (eg. Strands). I reckon as long as I use 220 V bulbs, i'll be fine with the fixture.

What do you guys think?
