Modern Fan has always pursued efficient, adequate lighting solutions for its ceiling fan products. Our Cloud fan features an organically shaped, opal glass shade housing either 120 watts of incandescent or the equivalent of 200 watts of energy-saving compact fluorescent light.
Answer: The term 2-wire or 3-wire is referred to the number of wires that can be found in your ceiling box. If you have 2 wires (one hot and one neutral) you need to use the 2-wire controls. If you have 3 wires (two hot and one neutral) you will need to use the 3-wire control. Both ways you will be able to control both the fan and the light independently. If you are replacing an older existing fan with an on/off switch only you probably have the 2-wire version. If you have a newer application with a separate fan and light control you may have the 3-wire version. Ask you electrician to determine which control you need.
