Low-voltage Electrical Wiring Question

Posted by Tom Rawcliffe on May 2nd, 1998 03:16 AM

Just when I thought I had seen everything.

We have just purchased a 44-year-old house, which when new had what was considered at the time, a state-of-the-art electrical system. Instead of regular 110V switches, it has low-voltage (I think 6V) rocker switches. These switches activate relays, all located in the center of the house. These, in turn switch on the 110V circuits, which run back to the associated light/outlet.

My first reaction is to rip out everything in favor of a more conventional system, but as I think of it, itís kinda neat. So before I replace it, I would like to learn more about what I have.

Does anyone have experience with this type of wiring, or know where I can still get parts (switches/relays/etc.) or more information?

Thanks for your help - TomR
