Is there a 'maximum' amount of wires that can be connected to a strobe light?
I have searched through NFPA 72.
? :confused:

It was simply a question on a test that asked:
What is the maximum amount of wires that can be connected to a strobe light?
Thats it. And I have searched high & low for this information to no avail.

I don't know the answer but the mathematical formula is... Two times one half the maximum :p

Bennie, can you back that up? ;)

Kholland, this probably would not be stated in a code. It would however be answered by physical wiring as far as a series circuit is concerned. If you are supervising a signal circuit you can only go "in and out" one time. This would mean TWO CABLES or FOUR CONDUCTORS.

In other words, you can only attach to the + and -terminals with two conductors each, and they can only be made continuous thru the terminal and not by twisting.
