Oh, you have to love 3 phase wiring. Motors are so much more efficient when running on 3 phase. What's fun is trying to explain why you can get 120V off a Y transformer but you only get 208V and not 240V from it. When you start talking phase angles people's eyes just glaze over
I always hated figuring phase angles and power factors!

I love reading these electrical discussions. Amazing how much bad info comes out in them.

Try explaining how you can get 3 phase power from a VFD that is only fed with 2 wires (single phase). You can actually explode people's heads!


Have we gotten far enough off-topic yet?

The bottom line is to always check what your plugging into, and understand what your needs are. If not you may let the smoke out.

And we all know that they just don't put enough smoke in these little electrical devices. Just let a little out and poof, they stop working.
