First off, this is a message board, NOT a search engine. You have to ask a question and give us some details about your situation.

You wire these units like any other circuit. It's just most of them require two or more circuits. Some require up to three 60A/240v circuits requiring a service upgrade to 400A.

Can you enlighten us about this installation?

What they said....

And if I may add.....if your asking this question....then I really doubt you have the skill set to understand our instructions....

Hence....pick up the phone book and find a qualified electrician.
