A special isolated-ground receptacle is require for this circuit and can be identified by the orange color and a small triangle imprinted on the face. When connecting the wires, the isolated ground wire (the red wire pictured here) is marked with green tape or paint on each end and connected to the grounding bar in the service panel, and to the grounding terminal on the receptacle.
This drawing shows the wiring for adding a new light fixture using an always-hot receptacle outlet as the source. New cable is run from the receptacle to the new fixture location and a switch loop cable is run from there to the new switch location.
This wiring diagram illustrates installing a 15 amp circuit breaker for a 120 volt circuit. The 14/2 awg cable for this circuit includes 2 conductors and 1 ground. A 15 amp circuit is usually used for wall receptacle outlets and light fixtures.
This page contains wiring diagrams for a service panel breaker box and circuit breakers including: 15amp, 20amp, 30amp and 50amp, as well as a GFCI breaker and an isolated ground circuit.
