Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
you have a machine you need to power?
I have a saw that uses a five-wire plug.
it has a plug on it now?
However, the only receptacle I have is a four-wire.
I have taken the plug off.
but it has 5 wires in the cord?
can you look on the front of the plug, there should be a number, similar maybe to 6-40P or something
any numbers or letters and numbers
The only thing is HBL2811
I can give you the colors of the the wires.
let me look at the plug first, just one min, thanks
Ok, I have the plug requirements and wiring, so the issue will be the machine.
The machine requires 3 phase, with neutral and ground
so, apparently it has 208 3 ophase and the need for 120 volts as well inside
if you eliminate anything, something will not operate on the machine
do you have 3 phase at your location?
I honeslty don't know.
ok, is this a business, commercial?
It's a glassblowing business.
ok, need to look at your breaker panel, se if you see breakers that are 3 wide, top to bottom
each section is about 1" so the breakers will be 3 wide or 3" wide approx
they make them in single, double and triple
One moment, please.
