Switched Outlet Wiring Diagram

A switched outlet wiring diagram is a simple connection of electrical wiring, in which an outlet wired with a switch. This switch is wired with a line wire and the outlet line wire is controlled by the switch. When we switch ON the switch, the outlet starts working. As you know there are different types of outlets, the two-pin outlets, and three-pin outlets. In two-pin outlets when having two points for 2 wire supply (neutral and line wire). And in 3 pin outlets (power plug), we have 3 points two for neutral and line (phase wire) and 3rd for earth wire (ground wire). In this post, you will learn how to wire a two-pin outlet with a switch.
