Project: observatory – Wiring


Return to main page

We will wire the observatory for electricity with normal household cable, switches, and receptacles, but connect it to house power by plugging it into a GFCI receptacle on a nearby post. The power cord will be buried in plastic conduit.

The post also has two CAT-5 cables for Ethernet connectivity to the home network. The second cable, originally intended for telephone service, will be reserved as a backup Ethernet cable.
