We hope that this outline of wiring colour codes helps you out in your home or business. This cable consists of three cores – brown grey and black which are all Line colours and an Earth wire. Blue was Neutral so Grey is Neutral with Blue sleeve.
Cable D Fig 2 is a three core and earth this is the 3 wire control that links the two light switches together. Standard 2-core and earth 6242Y PVCPVC cabling can be used for the initial mains feed to one of the alarms in the circuit with the subsequent connections between the alarms having an additional Interconnect connection along with the Live Neutral and Earth connections. These colours are strongly advised but not mandatory.
Corewire that provides a connection to earth for safety and protection purposes for both end-user devices and metal objects and components in the installation. For wiring a two way switch 3 CoreEarth cable is used. If you are finding cables being marked its because they used the wrong cable and had to identify the ends.
CraigMcK Mar 24 2011. Also greenyellow striped but pre-1976. Ive never seen 3 core E in the old colours with black in it.
And of course sleeving. For example any three-core 3CE or four-core 4CE power cable bought in Australia would follow the above colour codes. 3-core and earth 6243Y PVCPVC cabling can be used for interconnect cabling.
Standard 3 core and earth cable is sized. Black – Earth Sleeved green yellow AFAIK there is no regulation requiring the above colour coding I believe that it would be compliant to use the black core for neutral sleeved blue and to use the grey core for earth sleeved greenyellow.

Twin and earth wiring is required for all installations except those using a double wall control. For three phase wiring our standard colours are. The earth core in the cable is normally just bare copper during installation this needs to be inserted through a Green and Yellow sleeve where the earth is connected to a fitting or appliance.
Due to the colours of 3 core cable brown grey and black certain conductors will need an appropriate blue or brown sleeve over them to denote their use within the circuit see diagrams below. Old multi-point radial lighting diagram using junction boxes. Fantasia ceiling fans run on standard lighting wiring.
COM on the first switch connects to COM on the second switch L1 on the first switch connects to L1 on the second and L2 on the first switch connects to L2 on the second. Phase 3 Yellow Neutral Grey Earth Green Greenyellow or bare Europe. 2 way light switch 3 wire system new harmonised cable colours 2 way switch 3 wire system old cable colours 2 way switch two wire control Three way switching.
