Intermediate switch wiring diagram (new cable colours)
The 3 gang intermediate light switch is used where three or more switches control one light and used in conjunction with two two way light switches to achieve this. It is effectively three single gang intermediate switches on one face plate.
Each of the gangs (or switches) above in Fig 2 (of which there are three) work like this (Fig 3): There are four terminals, usually L1, L1 and L2, L2. In one position, L1 and L2 are connected in pairs. In the other position, alternate pairs are connected.
