What does 3P E mean?

IEC 60309 system Plugs are available in P+N+E (unbalanced single phase with neutral), 2P+E (balanced single phase), 3P+E (3 phase without neutral), and 3P+N+E (three phase with neutral). Current ratings available include 16 A, 32 A, 63 A, 125 A and 200 A.

What voltage does a blue plug represent?

200–250 volts
The cable connectors and sockets are keyed and colour-coded, according to the voltage range and frequency used; common colours for 50–60 Hz AC power are yellow for 100–130 volts, blue for 200–250 volts, and red for 380–480 volts.

How do you wire a 3 phase receptacle?

  1. Open up the three-phase plug using a screwdriver.
  2. Strip the wires you will be placing in the plug.
  3. Insert the stripped wires into the sockets in the plug as follows: black in 1, or L1; red in 2, or L2; blue in 2, or L2; white in 0; and green in the picture with the line and T symbol.

Is a blue wire the same as black?

Black wires are hot wires that run to the electrical outlet from the switch. Red wires are hot wires common in a 240-volt outlet or when a wall switch controls the outlet. Blue and yellow wires are hot wires for ceiling fans and three- or four-way switches. White or gray electrical wires are neutral wires.

Can you wire 3 phase plug to single-phase?

Yes, provided that the 3 phase socket outlet is a 5 pin type with a neutral, then a single phase 230/240 volt load may be connected to a 5 pin plug. In principle any of the 3 phases may be used, but in practice I would normally use L3 as this is often the least loaded phase.

What wire do you use for 3 phase?

Some three-phase power supplies do use a fourth wire, which is a neutral wire. The two most common configurations of three-phase systems are known as wye and delta. A delta configuration has only three wires, while a wye configuration may have a fourth, neutral, wire.

Can you put a 16 amp fuse in a 13 amp plug?

Using an oversized fuse is dangerous – the other components are designed to handle 13A and you’re counting on the fuse to blow at 13A, if the fuse doesn’t blow until 16A, the components will be overloaded.

Can black and blue wires go together?

The black and blue wires need to be connected. You will be able to control your fan and lights with a single switch. You should twist the black and blue wires the same way you did the previous wires.

What does 3 phase power plug look like?

If there are three or fewer slots for plug prongs, the outlet is a single-phase outlet operating at 110 to 125 volts, or 220 to 250 volts. Three-phase outlets have at least four slots. Three of the slots each supply one phase of the three-phase electric current, while the fourth slot is the ground.

How many wires can be in a 3 phase cable?

four wires
Three-phase has four wires: three actives (called phases) and one neutral. The neutral wire is earthed at the switchboard.
