Connecting LED flood lights
Jul 24th, 2021, 3:51pm
 
I've got some LED floodlights to go up in my workshop.  They come supplied with about 8 inch of flex attached.  Currently I've just got a couple screwed to the roof timbers with 13a plugs on and some extension leads strung round the place - far from ideal!

When I get round to having everything wired up properly, what's the best way to connect these up to the t&e coming from the switch?  All the cable will be run inside round conduit with metal clad sockets and switches.  Is it OK to just run the conduit into a metal clad box with a blanking plate on it, and put a cable gland in one of the knock outs?  Or is there a better way of doing it?

Cheers

That would be fine, or a whiska box with 20mm threaded entries.  Then use a TRS gland on the flex, and a male conduit adapter for the conduit.
