What does 240 volt hard wiring mean?

It means that the 240 volts is connected directly to the device

rather than being connected through an outlet. In some cases an

electric box may be wired between the power supply and device and

could contain fuses, breakers or a disconnect of some type. For

example if you have an outside air conditioner there should be a

disconnect box on a wall near the unit. The unit would still be

considered to be hard-wired.
