SOURCE: case 1: 220 V, 50Hz applied

Did you measure with a true RMS meter?
If yes,the results are normal,but your ground connection is not very good.
The case has 110v potential (exactly half of the input&output 220v) because of the input and output capacitor filters (a capacitor is conectet from phase to casis and an other from neutral to chasis,thus resulting a 1/2 voltage divider). Because of this,the earthing is necessary.

SOURCE: How I can convert 110volts to 220 voltage in

_Some_ chargers will allow a range of input voltages. This will probably be "Input: 100-240V" or something like that written on the charger. __You need to be sure__. Others may have a switch from one voltage to the other. The trick here is to make sure the switch is in the right position. In both cases you may also need a plug pin adapter. If the charger you have has neither of those abilities then you either need to get a different charger from Craftsman, or get a voltage converter, which will give both the right plug for your wall sockets and convert from 220V (from your wall) to 110V (to the charger). Unless the charger has voltage range or a switch, you can't just use a simple plug pin adapter.

Dewalt radial arm saw GW1- Is it single phase or 3 phase


if the plug on the cord fits any other outlet in the house it will be single phase
if the cord is cut , then it will have only 3 wires if it is single phase
( active , neutral and ground )
if it has 4 or more wires it will be 3 phase
most saws running a 200 mm blade or around that size and used for home duty will be single phase
the phase notation will be on the plate attached to the motor of the saw
It will read voltage , amperage, watts or hp, phase and cycles

How to wire a cooper Quadra Mark MH 277 Volt light


Quadra mark is commercial metal halide light
It appears the 208-240 480V model is different from 120, 277 or 347V model.
You cannot connect 277Volt light to 240Volt
These are two different things.
Commercial 277V has 1 hot leg and a neutral (very similar to residential 120V which also has 1 hot leg and neutral)
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/How-to-wire-outlets-14.jpg
While residential 240V has 2 hot legs
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html

Check rating label on light and see if it shows 120V in addition to 277V
If rating plate shows 120V, then it should work.

Residential 240Volt has 2 hot legs, each Hot leg measures 120V to ground
So you can use one Hot leg from the 240Volt breaker, and use ground wire to make 120Volt circuit.
Using ground wire to complete circuit in this manner is completely out of code and not recommended by any professional electrician. But it will work.

80 gallon tank what is the voltage and how do i hook electric wires to it


Most Larger water heaters are 220 volt ac single phase. This means you need 3 wires, two hot wires one neutral or ground. You will need to come from the breaker box off of a dual breaker of 30 amps or better. See the manual with the new heater. In your breaker box you have two sides or in coming service. The right side and the left each side is hot 110volts ac. you need to pull one leg (hot) from each side into the dual breaker out to the heater connections. The ground or neutral wire is un-insulated copper. Run these wires out to the heater. One black hot at 110 vac, one white hot at 110 vac and one plain copper ground.

How can i install the transformer for intermatic timer t10004rt3


Intermatic phone number: 815-675-7076

T104RT3 has 120Volt 300 watt transformer with 12-13-14Volt output.

The timer mechanism is 240Volt T104M.

Since both 120Volt and 240Volt are needed, the wire coming from breaker box should have 2 Hots and a neutral, plus the ground wire.
So you need 12-3 with/ground wire or 10-3 with/ground wire.
See image of typical wires plus ratings:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html
See example image showing 2 hots and neutral and ground coming from breaker box:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Basic-240-Volt-water-heater-circuit-2.jpg

The 2 hot wires come from a 240Volt circuit breaker.
The neutral comes from the neutral busbar, or can be accessed from tying into any white neutral on nearby 120Volt outlet.

How to wire timer:
Connect 240Volt hot wires to terminals 1 and 3 on timer. Connect 240Volt timed output to terminals 2 and 4 on timer.

How to wire transformer:
Connect 120Volt transformer two different ways. (a) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 1 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer is ON at all times. (b) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 2 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer will be ON when timer turns on.
Do not put both stranded wire and copper wire under same screw terminal. Instead connect transformer wire to solid copper wire using wire nut.

Three phase house wiring, i want diagram with electrical symbols


What kind of diagram are you looking for? Large business and warehouses have 3 Phase. I've not heard of a house. but let me know. Typically 110 comes out of one breaker and one neutral wire (and saftey ground is 3rd) 220 comes out of two hot leads and one neutral wire (single phase). 3 phase comes out of 3 hot leads and one neutral but is still 220 volt.

How can i get single phase power from my 3 phase generator


I have not wire this myself
Wiki says under heading of single-phase:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-phase_electric_power
Single-phase loads may be connected to a three-phase system in two ways. A load may be connected across two of the three phase conductors or a load can be connected from a live phase conductor to the system neutral. Single-phase loads should be distributed evenly between the phases of the three-phase system for efficient use of the supply transformer and supply conductors. Where the line-to-neutral voltage is a standard utilization voltage (for example in a 230 V/400 V system), individual single-phase utility customers or loads may each be connected to a different phase of the supply. Where the line-to-neutral voltage is not a common utilization voltage, for example in a 347/600 V system, single-phase loads must be supplied by individual step-down transformers.

So it sounds like you take 2 legs of the 3-phase.
or
Take one leg of the 3-phase and connect to neutral ... neutral could be a ground rod.

I would put a meter on that circuit before hooking up my power saw.

I have a ups system that i am feeding with 240 vac phase to phase and both phase to ground readings are 120 vac but when i go to battery power i get 240 vac phase to phase and 1 phase to ground i get 220...


No, I don't think there is anything wrong. Your UPS seems to have a single phase 240V output, which seems to be "floating" (no or only a weak ground reference).
Just be aware that you can only power 240V equipment from it. If you need 120V for some devices _and_ if the UPS provides sine wave output, you could use a step down transformer for this purpose.

On a 120/240Volt single phase system is:

Black = 1st phase
Red = 2nd phase
White = neutral
Green or Bare = ground

3 phase is the same with the third phase being blue.
