Wiring Chart – Blue Brown Black White Green-Yellow – What Do They Mean? July 19, 2016 – Posted in: Tutorials

Many of our customers end up returning units because of improper installation. Whether it’s not reading the instructions or just messing the wiring up. Here is a simple chart we made to match up wires correctly. Look at the chart horizontally to “create a match”.

Wire Fixture Color Standard Color Junction Box / Ceiling Color
Neutral WHITE
Live/Active
Ground ////////////////////// ////////////////////// BARE WIRE OR YELLOW GREEN

Notice how wires can change from country to country, location, etc. The ground wire can be bare and doesn’t need to be wrapped in electric tape.  We always recommend you have an electrician for installations.
