This lighting and switch layout for classroom lighting depicts the lighting and switch layout. A light switch is a switch that is commonly used in building wiring to operate electric lights, permanently connected equipment, or electrical outlets. A light switch on a portable lamp, such as a table lamp, will be mounted on the socket, base, or in line with the cord. Remote control switches that allow controlling the brightness of lamps and turning them on and off can replace manually operated on/off switches. Flashlights, automobiles, and other vehicles all have light switches. Go ahead and start using EdrawMax to create lighting electrical plans for your home or business.
