Wiring a 70w hps floodlight to ext. cord

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by Tadaa, Jan 3, 2006.

  1. I have the female end of the extension cord cut open, there's a white wire, black and green. On my floodlight there's black, white and a copper wire. Do I connect black to black, white to white then the green to the copper? I hope I don't have to take apart the light, because it has a sensor in it that turns it on/off automatically, will this be a problem?
  2. I hooked it up as described above, it works fine. Doesn't seem too bright, though. But I guess it's only 70w, how bright should it be?
  3. Green/ exposed wires are your ground wires, so they go together fine, theres another ground color but i cant remember it..
  4. black, blue, and red are usually always hot, white is neutral, and green or exposed is ground.
