This often translates into more time and effort spent preparing or focusing them. In addition, the combined weight of several accessories can alter the boom’s center of balance, and may increase the overall footprint of the sidelight position.

To reduce the possibility of confusion or electrocution, the established standard is to always have the female contain the source of electricity. In practical terms this means that instruments are always wired with male plugs, while dimmers are always wired with female sockets. Circuitry is often broken into two categories, either preinstalled or added. Preinstalled circuitry, part of the permanent electrical infrastructure of a performance facility, is often contained in a conduit and terminates at metal enclosures known as raceways, plugging strips, plugging boxes, floor pockets, or drop boxes.

The electrical flow moves in a single direction of polarity from the positive terminal of the battery (the source), through the bulb (the load), and back to the negative terminal of the battery to complete the circuit. In today’s world, low-powered direct current is seen in batteries, and is used to internally power computer devices. Most electrical power provided to the ­consumer, ranging from entire nations to household outlets, is alternating current. This type of electricity is ­created by large generators, which essentially consist of fixed magnets surrounding a rotating shaft carrying three coils of insulated wire.
