    Elec. Question - Wiring DC Bin Level Sensor to Alarm Light

    I think I have this figured out but wanted to get some confirmation from the electrical cognosenti before I wire this up today. My Bin Level Sensor has 5 wires - 2 for 110V power, and 3 for the switch. The switch wires let you choose either Normally Closed or Normally Open and 1 wire just doesn't end up getting used. I'm pretty sure that I want Normally Open ??and that those 2 wires connect to the positive wire of the 12V wiring that runs the Flashing Alarm strobe light I've got. So I just cut the hot wire of the 12V power and connect the 2 ends up to the 2 switch wires from the bin sensor ?? And it doesn't really matter which switch wire goes to which end of the cut 12v wire?

    Here's a pdf with the info on the sensor if that helps

    Doug, like you said connect the hot side to one wire of th N.O. the other goes to the alarm and the neutral of the 12 V goes to the other side of the alarm.
