To determine three phase, there wil be three hot wires from the breaker, which will have three wires. 240 single phase will have two hot wires, and the breaker will have two hot wires. Besides the hot wires, there will be a white wire,called common, which is used to make 110volt single phase where necessary. There should also be a green wire, which is safety ground. The BTU rating should be on the name plate. As far as I know, 2000BTU=1 ton

Looking at the model number, it appears to be a 3 ton. (36,000 btu) Most all residential units are single phase and most all commercial are 3 phase. One way to tell, look to see if the compressor has a capacitor. 3 phase never use capacitors on the compressors as they are not needed. Some residential units have a "Dual" capacitor. That is, it has 3 terminals, 1 common, 1 for condenser fan motor, and 1 for the compressor. Also, this info should be printed on the unit's lable.
Good Luck and hope this helps.

Where can i obtain a wiring diagram


A one phase 3 wire system has a center tap. Two hots and a neutral. Typical 120/240 volts.
A three phase 4 wire system has Three hots in a Y or Delta. The Y system has three hots and the neutral comes from the center of the Y, this is the neutral and grounded conductor, 120 volts from hot to ground and 208 volts hot to hot. In a 3 phase system the voltage is not doubled hot to hot as in a single phase system because the hots are 120 degrees phased from each other and the square root of 3 is the factor, multiply the 120 volts by 1.73 to get 208 volts hot to hot. Multiply 208 by the reciprocal of 1.73 and get 120 volts. Your exact application is not given so it is not known. A delta system is a triangle and the angle of each triangle is a hot wire, one angle would be grounded or the center tap of one of the sides of the triangle. Y is the configuration of the windings of the alternator or transformer and Delta is the configuration as a triangle of the windings of the alternator or transformer where the power supply is.

With a three phase home service, you can only connect two hots from your single phase generator, and the neutral. One of the house's hot does not get connected and any three phase loads in the house should be switched off and kept from energyzing or a circuit breaker or fuse serving that 3 phase load may trip.
Only one power supply can be connected at a time. The power company power must not be connected at all while using an alternate power supply unless your power supply has means to synchronize the alternating cycle.

It is adviced that the loads be kept within 10% of their rated voltage, especially motors.

Wiring schematic for MTB217 cooper b line


I would suggest taking a closer look at the motor name plate. I am not familiar with a 120/240 three phase service. When I checked the web it shows: Voltage 115/230 (that is single phase), Max Amps 115 Volts = 19.2 Max Amps 230 Volts = 9.6 , Single Speed, Square Flange, RPM = 3450, Threaded Shaft, Frame = 48Y Used on the following models: Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas, Max-E-Glas II, Dura-Glas, Dura-Glas II, Dyna-Glas, Dyna-Max Pentair Whisperflow, Pinnacle and Anthony AR2 Series. You should also show what voltage you are connected to.

My limited research indicates this heater is designed for USA electrical systems. That would mean single phase, 240/208 volts, 60 Hz. The drawings I reviewed shows a 2 pole, 240 volt breaker feeding each heating circuit. That means no "neutral wire" goes to the heater and therefore no 120 volts is needed. This is good. Kenya's system is single phase, 240 volts, 50 Hz. The heater should work reasonably well on the African system. Connect the power just like you would in the US.

LP126HD3A rated for 265 volts AC single phase I have 240V ac single phase, how can I use this unit on 240V ac


You'd need to supply a "Buck-Boost" transformer to do this properly. Technically, the 265 VAC is one hot leg and neutral of a 480 VAC 3 Phase Y system that measures 277 VAC. The 265 number comes from this:

265 is the standard nameplate voltage for a 277 volt motor or AC unit.

230 is standard name plate for 240.
200 is standard name plate for 208
460 is standard name plate for 480.
110 is standard name plate for 120.

Most electricians call the hot leg / neutral circuit "277V AC".

Some popular "Buck-Boost" transformers will convert 208 to 240 and 240 to 208 volt systems, and 240 to 277 and 277 to 240 volt systems - among many other variations. These are auto-transformers as the primary secondary windings share a connection. KVA ratings differ significantly from name plate because of this fact. You should contact a qualified electrician to not only size, but wire the transformer for you. Failure to install a Buck-Boost transformer - and running this unit on 240V AC mains will cause premature failure of motors - fans and compressor due to overheating. This can also result in a fire hazard.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I am working with a Dayton 2YU39. The name plates states that it has to be powered by 208 volt system. There's a 3-phase panel and a single-phase panel. The 3-pahse panel L1 to ground is 118 volts. L2 is a...


Hi,
Here's what I think but you will have to check it out...
The fan motor in the 39 heater is a 120V fan there fore it cannot be hooked to the 240 which potentially could have the high (wild) leg as one of the fan legs...
The 240V 36 unit probably has a 240v fan motor....
Now if you were to make sure that the leg that fed the motor was a 120V to ground leg then you will be okay...
Hope you understand where I was going with this...

I need to know the power requirements for this piece of equipment. Single or 3 phase, voltage, amps etc.


It is single phase. Either 208 volts 3240 watts or 240 volts 4316 watts. Unfortunately, its difficult to know which one you have. It can be ordered either way. Here's the deal, For no apparent reason, some buildings have 208 volts, some have 240 volts. If you know when you buy new equipment, you specify which voltage you have. So if your building has 208 volts and the machine is 240, it will still work, maybe a little slower to heat up. If it is the other way around, your building has 240 volts and the machine has 208 elements, it will heat up much faster, but the life of the elements is drastacally reduced becuse they burn out much quicker. You can call Lang at 314 781 2777 ask for technical assistance and they may have a way to find the voltage if the tag is missing.

I need a wiring diagram for the Hobart H600 which has a multi tap motor on and i would like to change the voltage on the motor to 200volt single phase 120/208 or even 120208 3phase. The wiring diagram is...


You cannot wire a three phase motor for single phase and you cannot wire a single phase motor for three phase. If you have a three phase dual voltage motor your options are 220 or 440 volts. If you have a single phase dual voltage motor your options are 120 or 240 volts. A 208 volt Hobart motor will only function correctly on 208 volts and is not dual voltage.

Is posible run a single phase electric motor from a source three phase 120/208 wye connection the motor is rated 230 volts AC


It is indeed possible to use ONE Phase to run a motor, You simply use One Phase and Neutral. BUT ONLY if the 3 phase is Double, more or less, the required usage Voltage, EG: 440 3 phase, will be OK, for 220 single phase, . But 220 3 Phase,will not run a 240. single Phase. So in your case is suspect not, it really will do no harm to try though. it just wouldn't work, if not enough "juice", be careful.

Have a 3 phase 7.5 HP IR compressor,want to put a 7.5 HP single phase motor on it,how do I wire the starter switch


You will use two of the original three wires. Not knowing if you have a motor starter and how it is wired makes it impossible to give you details.

BE AWARE that a 7.5 HP single phase motor is going to draw a massive starting surge compared to a three phase motor. I assume this is on a 240 volt system as it would NOT be practical to use a motor that size on a 120 volt system.

Expect to require around a 30 to 50 amp single phase feed to the motor.
