Wiring an Anti Rodent Strobe Light.
I just bought a home and would like to wire a anti-rodent strobe light fixture and 3 outlets on the same circuit in my attic. I've got a dedicated 20 amp breaker with 12/2 romex ready to go.
My question concerns my light which says that it generates 600 volts but uses 4.8 watts of electricity. Am I within code and out of overload danger using these materials?
Thank you, Darryl L.
Hi Darryl - Great Question and Thanks for the Donation!
Darryl there are a few of these products available and your additional information shows that you have the bulb and ceramic lamp receptacle.
This is safe as long as it is installed according to the manufacturer's instructions.
The 600 volts that is referred to has to do with the lamp that is used.
The lamp unit contains an electronic circuit that stores electricity up to 600 volts then releases this power to the light bulb which produces the bright strobe flash
I was amazed at this great idea to help get rid of rodents from attics, basements and other locations as well. I'm sure the strobe light will do a fine job of getting rid of rodents and squirrels as indicated.
Thanks Dave, I appreciate your reply.
