I would like to wire six high hats (recessed lights) using two
switches. The power is feed to the switch box with a two
conductor/ground romex. I would like to use three conductor/ground
romex to connect to the high hats. Connected to the first switch would
be the black conductor. The red conductor would be connected to the
second switch. I would then run the romex to the first can and connect
the white and black to the lamp. Then run the romex to the second and
use white and red. Then run the romex to the third can and use white
and black again. Then continue for the rest of the chain. The total
load would never exceed 600 watts (~ 5 amps). I know it will work and
be safe but does NEC allow it?
power--switches--light 1--light 2--light 3--light 4--light 5--light 6
Thanks for any input.
