Can I connect an exit sign to power cord?

Recommended Posts

Hi hello, I am not looking to install this exit sign for actual commercial use, this is solely because I like exit signs and want to put one in my house. It is only residential, it does not need to be there. I was wondering, my sign has a neutral, positive and negative power wire. Could I take a regular three pronged extension cord (this is North America, not the UK) and cut off the end, strip it, and connect the two power cords and the grounding wire, then plug it into the wall? Thanks!

What do they say about the USA and UK, two nations separated by a common language, in the UK we have live, neutral and earth, I could make guesses on your terminology, but not prepared to, you need to speak to an electrician over there.
