I didn't understand any other words on the instruction plate of the motor or control transformer. I do agree in star delta start as common on large motors. Just be careful that you don't overload by running high powered things atvonce. Operation on the higher North American voltage could otherwise lead to saturation, and to poor performance, unless the motor is specifically designed for the higher voltage. Please see our for more information.
Just go buy a transformer and step up your 240 to 480, it should be fine. Practical Machinist is the easiest way to learn new techniques, get answers quickly and discuss common challenges with your peers. I thought it was just an electric hook up type lead from go outdoors that you get for about £50, but then i saw on another site that we need a polarity checker or reverser? Check the needs of your own appliances accordingly before booking. I have seen 400V motors ran on 230 for 3 years 3600 hrs before breakdown. This hook-up wire can be used in a variety of applications including machine wiring, internal wiring of devices, medical equipment, and electrical applications. Only been to France once, and just to the one site.
This short extension lead, modified by an electrician, has live and neutral wires reversed and this polarity reversing device must be very clearly labelled as such. I thought we just plugged in and got on with it! This is the way it is wired now for high voltage. We are camping soon in france and have electricity but I am unsure about what we need to buy. In which case we would advise to go for the extra freedom which the gives you. You can get an adapter from Go Outdoors or Towsure for a couple of quid. Personally, I wouldn't bother with taking a two pin hook up.
This motor is on a big Cincinnati Mill. One important piece of kit is my polarity checker and it has shown on occasions that the supply is reversed polarity. Also, am i correct in thinking that as long as we do not use more than the alloted amps for our pitch we wont blow the electrics? Continental Hook Up Conversion Lead The Conversion lead Continental is for use with a Mobile mains unit when visiting European campsites and allows you to safely convert the power to feed your fridge, freezer, or lamps, meaning that you can still use your camping equipment abroad. Lately, I have had to hook several European - German motors. Yes, you need to limit your usage to the supply. The pitch supply amperage A required equals the stated wattage of the appliance W , divided by the site supply in volts usually 220V.
There will be lots of posts about reverse polarity, and at the end of the day you'll probably be no wiser than you were before. It is possible to wire most european motors of 5hp and less to 240 by linking Z,X,Y this should form a row U,V,W is the supply. In Brazil, they use a dual voltage motor system wherein the High voltage is 760 and the Low voltage is 440! Some harmonized hook-up wire is available in standards required for both European and North American markets, while most harmonized wire is rated to only European standards. I carry a few different leads as in our experience there is little conformity. A kettle, 'phone charger, and tent light would almost certainly stay on side by side.
The Club is not responsible for electrical damage caused by voltage fluctuations. With so many items of camping gear these days being powered, finding a safe way to supply electricity to your tent has become inceasingly very important. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. On the one occasion we needed one the camp site had plenty to lend out. That would fit with your description as this being connected for the lower voltage. Taking a further extension cable is also a good idea. How far away will my hook-up be? The frequency converter is fed from the main 440 volt 3 phase supply.
It can be right on the pitch, or it may be some distance away, so we recommend taking a 25m electricity cable. Many continental sites have this system, but many still use their national-style plugs, especially in France, Germany and Spain. Some sites have 6 amp supply and are quite eay to blow. How does a sage know everything about everything? Reduced voltage gives reduced power output, so appliances generally do not work so efficiently. Well, it looks as though you are stuck with it being a 440V motor then, you won't have a lower voltage connection because that is already the low voltage connection i.
For additional information, see the Global Shipping Programme New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging where packaging is applicable. I won't bore you with the techie stuff but the potential to get electric shock is real. They have been delta 440 and wye 220. Never bothered abiut polarity, its a geek specialism. You can come into one of our fantastic stores to collect or have your items delivered to you at your convenience.
Check out our section for other innovations from to , if you love to get away, but not from your beloved gadgets! A , it does indeed sound geeky to me , and B We don't hear too much about incidents on sites due to folk having the wrong polarity! They Bevi says 400V 50Hz motors may be put on 440V 60Hz too. As mentioned it may not cause any problems but where electricity is concerned I am careful. Returns Returning an Item If you receive your order and it is not what you are expecting you can return it back to us within 30 days of receiving the goods for an exchange or refund including the delivery charge if you return it within 14 days. Thank you guys what a great board thank you all for allowing me to be a part of it! It didn't make any difference to my 'van, but my friend's much newer 'van complained and refused to work electrically speaking until he re-wired the adaptor. If your polarity tester tells you the polarity is reversed, then using your reverser will deliver a safe supply into your unit. Huge motors may have other voltages, usually with a voltage difference of about 1. Static converters are made for these motors, and the capacitance required at 830, vs.
If you still have questions, chat with us online or call us at 800. Life is much easier with only one voltage. You will either need a selection of leads or just 1 with a screwdriver! The 760V is used in the mining industry. European countries and Australia only have one voltage for low voltage 3 phase supplies so multitap windings like the 9 wire type are unnecessary in such countries. Chances are it is a standard one.
