Questions about: circuit - страница 1

Anytime a dead wire runs parallel to a hot one, it will pick up phantom voltage. You can see it with a rather sensitive voltmeter like a modern DVM, but it won't do any useful work. In other words this is an issue with your voltmeter
That is precisely a Multi-Wire Branch Circuit (or MWBC). Those are defined as exactly what you drew: 2 hots that share a neutral up to a point. Your setup is fine, but with one problem
Instructions Map Coordinates displays the latitude and longitude coordinates in degrees, minutes, seconds decimal, degrees minutes decimal and degrees decimal of the current location. Map Coordinates of mouse displays the latitude and longitude in de
My gas furnace/AC was 26 years old and both still working fine when I replaced them. I am not suggesting you do the same, but I am in the biz and therefore would not be held hostage should either of them have failed during peak season. That said, sin
My 20 amp breaker going to my garage keeps tripping. It just started suddenly, the only thing plugged in there 24/7 is my washer. I replaced the outlet, and even tried unplugging it completely and it still trips
I have a new house (about 9 months old) and recently the dishwasher circuit has started tripping. It trips while the dishwasher isn't running. I believe it's code that the dishwasher must be on its own circuit so I'm not sure what else could be causi
The cooktop says it requires 30A circuit and the oven requires 20A. So is both on a 50A safe? I am mainly referring to posts such as this one I've read on this forum: "NEC 210. 19 (A)(3) exception 1 You are indeed allowed to have both a cooktop and o
You may want to look at how the switch is wired in order to fully understand the circuit before replacing the power receptacle. Also, remember that the switch should connect/disconnect the LINE (~120 V) and not the neutral. The neutral and ground sho
Circuit Breaker A circuit breaker's function is, like a fuse, to break a circuit path when a predetermined amount of current is passed. In my opinion, circuit breakers should never be used to protect electronic devices such as radios, amplifiers or c
