220 Volt Circuit for Equipment From Another Country
Circuit Requirements for Foreign Electrical Equipment: Here are some examples of electrical power here in the USA at industrial and some commercial buildings.
Wiring Foreign Electrical Equipment
Electrical Question: I have a system coming from another country that is 220volt single phase.
- In the country where it is made they say the wiring is A hot B neutral C Ground for 220Volt.
- My electrical guy is coming to wire 10/3 A hot (110) B Hot (110) =220V and C Ground on a dual pole breaker will the dual pole breaker Supply one 220v one neutral?
- I understand the ground part. I Am lost with the instructions and need some help.
- This new system is about 4K and runs at 5200Watts. To return it because of problems will be costly plus transportation fees.
This electrical wiring question came from: David, a Homeowner from Utah.
Additional Comments: The website looks Great but I have not found a diagram about foreign electronics single phase 220volt on USA dual electric system.
Thanks for your electrical wiring question David.
220Volt Wiring Foreign Electrical Equipment
- The voltage for this equipment must be fully identified because there are several power configurations.
- Here are some examples of electrical power here in the USA at industrial and some commercial buildings: 120/240, 277/480 volt. With these two examples 120 and 277 volts are circuits consisting of one hot wire, one neutral, and the ground wire of different power systems.
- Our 220-240 volt system is typically two hot wires out of phase, and in rare exceptions a 220 volt stinger leg is used in some commercial and industrial applications for motor loads. It would be best to positively identify the power specification for this equipment before connecting it to any circuit.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.
Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..
The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
