People also ask

  • Can a 240 volt service have 208 volts on it?

  • No. A 3-wire 240 Volt service is a single phase service, and there should not be any 208 on such a system. BUT, if your premises is connected to a networked 3 phase wye connected service, you will have 120/208 Volts available, but not 240 Volts.

  • What is the difference between 208v and 240V single phase?

  • The difference between 208V three phase, and 240V single phase, is how the voltage is derived. 240V single phase is obtained by taking a single leg of three-phase power. 208V three phase is obtained by taking two legs of three-phase power. Will a 240v motor run on 208v?

  • Can a 208 volt high leg have a single breaker?

  • Here the B slots would never have just a single breaker in them but may have double or triple breakers for 240 volt only power (no neutral) or 3 phase power respectively. A 208 volt high leg (B leg) cannot power equipment rated for exactly 208 volts and also requiring a neutral.

  • What appliances need 240-volt service?

  • Some appliances in the home and some tools in a shop may require 240-volt service. This is still a single-phase service. 240-volt service is accomplished by using two 鈥渉ot鈥?120-volt lines. This doubles the available voltage to 240-volts. Most electric cookstoves, hot water heaters, and some other home appliances require this extra voltage.
