A 20 amp, 120v duplex receptacle like this should be installed in a circuit using 12 awg or larger cable and a 20 amp circuit breaker. These receptacles are usually found in kitchen wall outlets where two branch circuits are needed to serve small appliances and a refrigerator.
This outlet is commonly used for a heavy load such as a large air conditioner. The outlet should be wired to a dedicated 20-amp/240-volt circuit breaker in the service panel using 12|2 awg cable.
Also be sure the neutral from the source is connected to the neutral terminal at the light. A neutral wire will not be connected to the switches in these circuits, although some smart switches may make use of a neutral wire to operate the device.
This is the standard 15 amp 120 volt wall receptacle outlet wiring diagram. This is a polarized device. The long slot on the left is the neutral contact and the short slot is the hot contact. A grounded contact at the bottom, center is crescent shaped. Don’t use this receptacle when no ground wire is available.
