    Hello everyone. I’m trying to plan/design the layout for having electrical work done inside my garage. I will hire a licensed electrician to have the work completed (I’m in the Orange County area of Southern California, any references appreciated), but wanted to shop around and buy the different...

    Hi, I am considering buying a Commercial Truck for RV use. It is now wired with 100 Amp, 3 Phase, 120-208 Volt Wye Shore Power. But I actually would need to convert it to use traditional 50 Amp, 2 Phase RV style external power supply. The leads coming into the breaker box are: Black (A...

    I have a 12v 3 phase AC 300 W wind turbine. 1/2 the days the wind is too low and it only outputs 3+ volts - not enough to start my charge controller. In a perfect world, I hope there is a step up/down transformer to maintain an output of 12-14v from an input in the range of 3v-14v. Does such...

I was wondering if I am correct in thinking that a double pole 20 breaker with two hots and a ground(earth) is all that needs to be run. I am not doing the work, just wondering...

    I have a 120/208 V, 3 phase, 3Kw generator. I am desiring to up the voltage to 230 V so I ran a tool that is rated for 230 V 3phase. Im told I can use boost transformers to do this. Anybody have any advice on how to go about doing this, installation, etc? Do they go before or after the...

    Hello! Could anyone point me in the direction of a suitable magnetic switch for a 3 phase 3/4 horse motor? All of the switches I've found are rated for a much large motor than the one I have. Could this be problematic? motor specs below. THANKS! MAGENETEK EXPLOSION PROOF PH: 3 HP: 3/4 RPM...

    My recently purchased older home has 3 phase power coming in from the POCO with the 3rd leg being a high leg (208v I believe). The only thing using the third phase is the outside a/c condenser/compressor unit. Eventually I will replace the ac unit but don't want to yet as it is running just...
