3 phase motor wireing for specific voltage

  1. Jul 13, 2011 #1
    my outlet reads 240 across any two of three leads. Can I assume it is 240 3phase rather than 460 which I also have at the same location. What would 460 read across the leads? Thanks Tom

    I would say you have 240 volt delta at the outlet you are measuring.
