The reason why I used the general wiring table versus the chassis table was to keep it simple.
I dare not assume that the vast majority here know the difference between different insulator
types and h...

So, a quick general theory question....Basically, I'm confused.No worries man, if its a new
concept and can be difficult to get your head around it.Lets call the two hots L1 and L2 then
the Neutral. i...

Does this completely cut the electricity to the freezer? Do you think it will cause issue to
the compressor after come time of off and on?Nope, thats how the original thermostat in the
freezer works. ...

boil kettles and mashtuns, dont see any copper fermenters though.

Well, the best bit of advice I can offer is to quit counting :)I've had to acquire my stuff
slowly over time. Start simple and get something working and then go from there.

Well. I'm an engineer by degree in a very engineering oriented company but I no longer do much
engineering and have forgotten at least half of what I knew....so I guess I'm a half ass
engineer and hal...

They wont cancel each other out. I dont remember seeing anything in the NEC that says you cant
either. From the people Ive talked to they seem to me prone to nuisance trips, but their
problem may have...

You can buy a 60A GFCI spa panel for the same price as that little gizmo.The reason why you
need a contactor for that thing is because it only has a single pole contact. Once a ground
fault is detecte...

yeah, three phase is preferred because there is virtually no slip in the motor, tons of torque.
With the VFD you can change the frequency of the AC wave form wich translates to spindle speed.

Does it need to be DC?If so you're looking at large DC servos and servo controllers.If these
are for Mills and Lathes, look into some small 3 phase motors.3phase motorsand you can find
single phase in...
