[ad#block]Question: 6-15R (2 hot 1 Ground) receptacle. Needing to connect to sub panel which is properly grounded (neutral and ground are not bonded)
Does the receptacle ground connect to the isolated ground or to the neutral in the sub.
In a sub-panel the ground should attache to the isolated ground, not the neutral.
In a 3 wire (2 hot) setup. How is the appliance chassis grounded?
The ground for an appliance should be attached to the ground wire from the power cord.
Thanks for your electrical question Mike.
