HELLO,

The voltage at the power outlet must be 120V, this is the power rating for 60hz power.

Did your split ac has power supply unit (PSU), that converts main power to 120V into the much DC voltages utilized by the equipment?

If your split ac does not have it, i advice you don't connect your ac split to that high voltage.

Take care.

Hello,

120V is the nominal voltage. ... for Electric
Systems and Equipment—Voltage Ratings (60 Hertz).

Take care

Hello,

Please take note that, this is an added clarification, this 120V only apply to mostly Americans, if your country is not under this category, the power rating should be 240V and not 120V as said before.

Take care

### Need wire color diagram

Black = AC hot
Red = switched AC hot
Yellow = AC hot from a another source - another control panel as an example.
White = neutral
red w/white tracer = switched neutral
Green or green w/ yellow tracer = ground/earth ground
blue = DC voltage, ie, 12vdc, 24vdc
white w/blue tracer = dc common
Brown = AC 3 pahse - phase A
Orange = AC 3 pahse - phase B
Yellow = AC 3 Phase - phase C
shileds: think of current loops
2 cond
clear or red = +
black = -(neg)
3 cond
red = power (24vdc typically for transducers)
clear = + (signal output)
black = - (signal common)
Hope this helps, oh, and any panel I have design and wired this way is easily understaood by 99% of all service and electrical people I have worked with.

### What is the difference between neutral and phase?

neutral is the white wires on each power phase phase is the number of hot lines to run pump 120 volt 1 phase 220 volt 2 phase 3 phase has 3 lines to it let electrician handle this

### How towire a 220/110 7 wire single phase motor to 2 wire plus ground switch

This is very simple, but you need to make sure you have the correct wires in hand. If you are wiring a 220/110 motor, and you are wiring it for 110 use, you will only be using 3 wires. If this motor has 7 wires, most you will need to cap off.All you need to use are P-1/Line 1 is your 110 hot. Cap off T-4, 2, and 5, Line 2. That would be used for 220 volts. P- 1 will go to your hot wire on press. On the new motor, T-8, P-2, and t-3 you say are insulated? You will need a Neutral wire to tie to the other line wire coming from the press. And the 3rd wire will be your ground. So, P-1 is hot to your press wiring, t-4,2, and 5 capped off. T-8, P-2, and T-3 has to be a Neutral wire, I would think that if T-4,2,and 5 are line -2, this would be for 220 volts. You are being confused by so many wires. You will only need to use P-1 power for 110 to press power wire, find which wires are Neutral and a ground that will go to your press wiring.P-1 will go to Red if this is hot to the press, Black to Neutral, and on the new motor you will see what color is ground, normally green or bare copper. 3 wires only. You will only need the p-1 hot, a neutral, normally white but may be black on the new motor, and a ground. Look at the Diagram on the new motor, and it will tell you the combination. P-1, Neutral, ground, and cap off the other 4 wires. I hope I havent confused you more, it is very simple, its just the colors of the wires the are confusing you and the amount. Just remember, you only need to use 3 of the, P-1, Neutral, and a ground.

### 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.

### Case 1: 220 V, 50Hz applied to s 3000 measuring the output as follows: 1- phase to ground 220 2- Phase to neutral 219 3- ground to neutral 1 volt Case 2 disconnct the input 220 V we have 1- phase...

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.

### We have a Carrier mini split AC that we are wiring on a portable office that will be going to a foreign country, the Carrier #38QG24-H. This unit's voltage specifications is 200-240volts, single phase, 50...

please 200- 240 volts is a standard for all and for the breaker is depending of the country if 120 v single phase you will install as usa if 220 v single also you can connect you breaker but the problem is some countries are not 50 hz comfirm the unit is 50/60 hz.

### I have 2-240V (4.2V) basebaord heaters, Need Wiring Diagram

you get 120V from any phase (black OR red) to neutral
you get 240V from phase to phase (between black and red) and in this scenario you don't need the white wire.
So for you, connect the black to 1 pole of the breaker and the red to the other pole, connect the green wire to the ground strip and you are done.
A white wire is NEVER connected to a circuit breaker anyway, it is a grounded wire, it would be like connecting a green wire to a black wire, bad idea.
the National electrical code specifies red and black wire color for 240VAC circuits.
As Ask Hank mentionned, nothing wrong with 10/3 wire.

### Not sure hooked up correctly

The black and white wires should both go to the breaker. Not just the black wire. If you hook only the black wire to the breaker then you are only feeding the unit with 110 instead of 220. Both wires need to be hot.
