Wiring welder in the Philippines? ( 3 wire to 2 wire ) Answered
aI have a millermatic 211 which is a multi-voltage welder which I will be bringing to the Philippines.
The adapter plugs are 5-15p (120v), and 6-50p (230v).
Philippine electricity mains when I live are 220v single leg, with neutral.
I am adding ground to both the Main panel and sub panel when I arrive, as most residential homes with a 2 wire system do not have them installed.
According to the welder schematic 6-50p adapter configuration shows white, red, and green (ground) so goingfFrom a 3 wire US to 2 wire Philippine system is it proper to wire L1 to red, neutral to white and green to ground?
6-50 receptacle does not seem to incorporate a ground in typical installations????
