Electrical Question:
Does a 240volt circuit require a neutral wire?

  • I'm putting in a 30amp disconnect with 10/3 AWG cable with a ground wire.
  • The disconnect is a signal phase with a ground and no neutral bar.
  • Can I float that neutral and pass code?


Is a Neutral Wire of a 240volt Circuit Needed?


Key Factor: What is this disconnect being used for, or what equipment is being fed from the disconnect switch?

Older Homes:
  • Example: Dedicated circuits for 240volt equipment did not require a separate neutral wire for:
  • Electric Dryer
  • Electric Range

Note:
In older home applications, if the neutral wire is a spare, and the 240volt equipment does not require the neutral, then you could simply cap off the existing neutral wire.

New Homes and Electrical Upgrade Projects:
  • Example: Dedicated circuits for 240volt equipment does require a separate neutral wire:
  • Electric Dryer
  • Electric Range

Important:
In New Construction Projects where 240volt equipment will be installed a neutral wire may be required. Please consult the electrical code updates and equipment specifications for specific circuit requirements.
