ALR photocell wire repair

ALR photocell wire repair

Had a few of these for a while now. They have always had short leads from past unknown and I've recently begun fixing them with longer wires so they will be ready for a fixture.

Wow I'm surprised this still works! I'm guessing it wasn't in use that long. These button-type hardwired PCs are generally mediocre quality compared to twist-locks. ALR is a major brand though, so perhaps these were more of a high-end button PC.

They are made in the USA so thats probably why. I had these in service for a few years in my outside lights until I took them down recently with no failures. One of them i even accidently wired up to 210 volts on a ballast i briefly tested on it before it went into service and it still lived and still works great lol.

I ordered some more photcells like these but i could only get ones made by longjoin in china so yeah see how those work out. Perhaps running small loads on these is what makes them last?

Yeah the larger the load generally means a shorter life.
