460v/480v Code

  1. Apr 4, 2009 #1
    Is it against code in any way to have a 460v motor connected to a 480v supply voltage?
    What problems can be encountered when doing this?

    460 Volt motors are designed to operate on a 480V system. All motors have Voltage ratings slightly below the system Voltage rating. Throughout the industry, at all Voltage ranges.

    Oh, and by the way Volts, Voltage, and 460V are ALWAYS capitalized. It is a proper name. Just as are Ohm, Ampere, etc....

    Have a great day
