I have a question, how would you guys wire a regular three section traffic signal? The lights have a terminal block in the yellow section that I would like to keep, considerng that all wiring from the block to the light sockets is aluminum. If you say four-conductor cable, tell me where to find it besides online and PENNDOT's office. None of the lights are permanent. Diagrams would be helpful, but not necessary. Thanks, Ian (Theelectrikid)

Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
The wiring to the sockets is probably tin plated copper mot aluninum. Traffic signal cable is manufactured to IMSA standards and for a 3 section head you would a cable with a RED for red ball YELLOW for yellow ball GREEN for green ball. WHITE for common if there is an green arrow for left turn it would be on a BLACK.At this time i cannot remember what color a yellow left turn arrow is fed with. remember that in the wiring going io the signal head that green is power to the green ball (indication) NOT GROUND.
I have a newer LED Traffic siginal with a Brown wire fir the Hot to the green. It has a 4 postiion terminal block wire order red yellow brown and the neutrals all under the last screw that then goes to my sequecer a T3 from lights to go .com and that goes to a 3 wire orange cord
