Best Answer

In the panel box (if there are circuit breakers) The top breaker or main should have a number on it like 100 or 150 or 200. This is the total amperage of the electric service in your house.

I'm lucky, I see 300 on panel box but that's not enough. I sacrificed one bar for a one 120v for a outlet for my at&t. I need more amp slots for my house for a Nissan LEAF and save our troops.

It is ok to use a fuse with a higher amperage rating and not ok to use a fuse with a smaller amperage rating why?

Is amperage rating and running amperage the same thing?

Usually the current rating for a circuit is higher than the current usually taken. This leaves a little margin for safety.


Will a fuse of a higher amperage rating have a higher melting point link?

No, a fuse of a higher amperage rating will not usually have a higher melting point link. The higher amperage fuse will use a wider link or a link of larger diameter.


How can you tell what the amp service is in your house?

I would have to say that the amperage label on the main breaker would designate the amount of amps coming into the house.Look at the number on the handle of the main breaker. That number is the rating of the breaker and at what amperage the breaker will trip. If you have a main fuse switch the number on the fuse is the tripping amperage. This will be the amount of current that the service is rated at.


What is the amperage rating of 800 MCM Copper wire?

600amps


What is the amperage rating for 8 gauge wire?

24 Amps maximum.


What color are radio fuses?

Look in your owner's manual or on the fuse panel to see the correct amperage rating for the fuse. The fuse itself will have the amperage rating, but it is possible that someone (at one point in time) put the wrong amperage fuse in, so verify that with the owner's manual or the fuse panel.


If kilowatts are known how to you find the proper wire size?

Wire size needed depends on amperage, not watts. If you know the voltage of the power supplied you can calculate the amperage using this form of the "power formula":A = W / VThen there are tables that tell the amperage each wire gauge is capable of carrying. Just select the gauge that has the amperage rating just larger than you calculated.


How do you covert a two prong welder plug to a three prong and ground out let?

Need to know the amperage rating of the plug or the NEMA configuration of the plug and receptacle

How do you calculate the main fuse for electrical wiring?

It needs to match the rating of the service and the panel itself. The panel will have an amperage rating and you should not exceed this.


How do you find wattage rating of a microwave oven?

Wattage = voltage x amperage. Every appliance in North America is built to work at 120 V, so you have the voltage. The amperage rating is probably written in the microwaves manual if the wattage is not. Remember the amperage you put on a circuit can't be more that 80% of what the wiring is rated for in the branch circuit.


What size wire do you use for 220 volt welder?

The wire size of the welder is based on what the amperage rating of the welder is. This can be found on the welder's nameplate. Look for the input amperage.


Does a double pole breaker double the amperage?

No. In North America a double pole breaker is used to obtain a voltage of 240 volts from the distribution panel. What ever the amperage rating stamped on the handle of the breaker is, that is the amperage that the breaker will trip at.


What is the amperage rating of the alternator in a 1997 Tacoma 4x4?

v-6 standard is 100 amps


Is there an adapter for a four prong outlet?

Need more information e.g. voltage, amperage rating.


Are you 380 volt panel what size cable use?

With out knowing the amperage rating of the panel, an answer can not be given.


What gauge wire is required for a 220 outlet?

Voltage does not dictate wire gauge, amperage does. The amperage rating of the breaker feeding the new circuit and the length of the run to the outlet determines your answer.


How do you test transformer's ratings?

It really depends on the rating you're wishing to test. there's a full load amperage rating, a voltage withstand rating, steady state voltage ratings, etc.


Can different rating circuit breakers have the same short circuit characteristics?

Yes, different amperage rating circuit breakers can have the same short circuit characteristics.


What wires go to the x and y terminals of a 240 volt cord?

Need to know what the amp rating of the plug is, as there are different configurations for each amperage. Check out the chart on related links.


How do you find ampere rating of a 500 kva genset?

If you know the voltage being supplied, divide that into 500kVA. For example for 120 Volts the amperage would be 500,000/120 = 4166.66 Amps.

The amperage draw at motor start up will be roughly 300% of the FLA (Full Load Amperage) of the nameplate rating.
