You will need to take the cover off of the breaker panel. Find the three lugs that the incoming hot wires are hooked to. With three phase you will have three hot lines. Check the voltage between the phases. L1 - L2- L2- L3- and L1 - L3 Also check the voltage from each line to ground. If you havw 120/208 three phase current you will have 208 +or- a few voltage between the phases and 120 or so from each line to ground. If you have 120/240 three phase you will have 240v across the phases and 120 to ground on two legs and 208 to ground on one leg, this is called a "wild" or high leg. You may also have 480v into the shop and you will know that very quickily if you get 480v between phases. No matter if you have another voltage, you can buy a trandformer that can convert whatever you have to 208/120 3 phase for your unit.

I installed a 3 ph 208v Square D starter with 2- 120v relays wired from the incomming power, in series, for phase loss protection. I took a neutral to the mag coil and and a wire from the relay contact to...


1. Why not buy a phase loss monitor that monitors all 3 legs. 208v 3ph is 115-120V to neutral. If you're using two 120V relays you'd only be monitoring 2 legs of the 3 phase. Using relays can be risky, as sometimes when you loose one phase you'll still pick up voltage through your load. If your set on using relays use 2-208V relays. Connect one to phase A+B and the other to B+A and then wire two of the normally open contacts in series and put that in your circuit with your pressure switch. I'f you're using 208V for control voltage, then you need to take L2 to the oveloads and then to the coil. L1 would go to your pressure switch, and the return from the pressure switch would go to the other side of your coil. You could add your phase loss protection here.

Ge jsp42 electric range ..Oven heats up very slowly..sometimes can take one hour to heat to 400 degrees..Stove top also slow..


Check the voltage at the outlet. It should be 208v or 240v. check by putting meter probe into the 2/3 slots. NOT the U shaped,or round looking holes.Check one to another. Check tag on range for voltage of range. If you have 208v at the outlet and range is 240v the oven will take forever to heat, it is not getting the power it needs. If the tag says 230v either will work. On the oven tag it will say either 1ph, or 3ph. If it says 3ph you outlet should have the voltage mentioned above between ALL 3 SLOTS! If you get 120v when testing any slot, you have only 1ph of power. Keeping it simple, the ph, (or phase,) between the outlet and oven have to be the same.

How do i connect he differenial pressure switch into the 3ph star/delta starter circuit?


Your question is a bit unclear, but I assume you are asking how to wire the pressure switch in a piston compressor.

See the diagram, below.

You should have a wire from the L1 (first incoming main voltage) terminal to the pressure switch, and from the other pressure switch terminal back to the starter coil. You will also have a wire from L2 (second main voltage terminal) to the overload, and from the other overload terminal to the other side of the coil. In this arrangement, the motor starter coil must be rated at the SAME VOLTAGE as your incoming power.

This diagram works the same for single phase machines (they just don't have the third wire coming from the supply through the starter and overload to the motor.

If your machine has other safety controls (like a low oil switch), It can be wired in series with either the pressure switch or the overload.

I have vulcan Double stack electric ovens 208v 3ph.what size breaker do I need to power each oven


I need to know the Power rating Example 5Kw or the Ampere Ex. 30A . What is the raring of each oven? The Breaker should be greater than the Ampere of your oven let say 120% greater.

Wrong voltage rating


Hello. If the unit is rated 460v, 3phase, the only way you can get it to meet your supply of 208v, 3phase, is:
a) have a transformer installed to make 460 from your supply by an electrician, or call your power company and see if 460 could be supplied to your building, but it would only be for that machine.
or
b) replace the heating elements for the 208v supply, have the pump motor checked to see if it will work on 208v, and a control transformer for the control circuit, as well as all the wiring related to the pump and heaters, as on 208v, they will draw more current than on 460.
so, can it be done? yes. Is the expense worth it? only you can answer that, However I would suggest that you resell that machine, and get the correct one from the start.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Dryer voltage problem


The dryer should work ok on 208 volts. The drying time may be a bit longer than usual since at 208 volts, you will only have 5408 watts of heat. Your bigger problem is your three phase panel. You can hook up one "hot wire" from the dryer to any of the three 3phase wires, and the other "hot wire" from the dryer to either of the two remaining 3phase connections and you will have a good connection to your dryer. However, the third wire from the dryer is a "ground wire" which has no connection in the three phase panel, or at least you didn't say it has one. If you can pull a ground wire from the grounding lug of the service panel feeding your 3phase box, and connect it to the third wire on the dryer, you would have a safe connection.

At 208v, the dryer will pull 26 amps. Be careful and make the right connections.
