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?
Usually the current rating for a circuit is higher than the current usually taken. This leaves a little margin for safety.
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.
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.
24 Amps maximum.
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.
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.
Need to know the amperage rating of the plug or the NEMA configuration of the plug and receptacle
5.1v is the Voltage, You need to also look at what the Amperage rating is on the charger. 500ma, 1000ma, etc. How many Milliamps?
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.
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.
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.
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.
v-6 standard is 100 amps
Need more information e.g. voltage, amperage rating.
With out knowing the amperage rating of the panel, an answer can not be given.
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.
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.
Yes, different amperage rating circuit breakers can have the same short circuit characteristics.
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.
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.
You can't. Seer is the efficiency rating. Try the amperage and voltage formular.
