How to Wire a 240V AC Outlet - Instructables
How to Wire a 240V AC Outlet: We were given a welder that has a big 240 volt plug, but our home doesn't have any 240V outlets already wired. What to do? Wire your own! Turns out the plug we had is NEMA 6-50. You can probably figure out what yours is from a chart. If it's clo..
electrical - Why Do 240V Circuits Not Require Neutral
AC current requires a return path, electricity goes out one way and back the other. With 120V wiring in the US, you have a center tapped transformer with two hots that total 240V. The neutral is that center tap, which combined with only one of the hots gives you 120V. Use both of the hots and you have 240V.
Understanding 120/240V Wiring Color Code | DoItYourself
Homes in North America are supplied with a 120/240V single-phase electrical service. The incoming 240V power is split onto two legs. Each leg can provide 120V hot-to-neutral, and the two legs together will supply 240V, which is used to supply heavy loads such as air conditioning
Voltage Differences: 110V, 120V, 220V, 240V
The AC voltage oscillates from +120V to -120V. With the two legs feeding your house being out of phase, can you pick up 240V AC by using both legs rather than one leg and neutral. When you use both legs to feed a circuit, like a range or water heater, you end up with twice the voltage (a line that oscillates from +240V to -240V).
