PM205 L10-50R Plug Wiring
I got my PM205 on friday and finally got the 220v wall socket wired up in my garage with a NEMA L10-50R 3 prong socket and 6 gauge wiring to a 50amp double pole breaker. But the question I had was about the wire colors coming out of the PM205 unit, its green, white, and black. I want to confirm with you guys that the wiring is correct.
Plug wires from unit:
Green - neutral White wire from breaker?
White - 110v hot Red wire from breaker?
Black - 110v hot Black wire from breaker?
Without tearing into the unit I not sure if this is correct, basically I just need to know which wire is the neutral wire because the other two can connect to either remaining wires to get the 220v connection. I'm eager to get this thing up and running, thanks Jason.
edit: after reading the online manual, it stated: Power cord. The power cord must not be kept in a strain or the unit pulled by the cord at any time. Notice that you will have 3 wires coming from the cord. You will see a green wire. This is the ground connection. A white wire and a black wire. These are your two hot connections. Follow the wiring connection directions for your type of welding power plug. I would still like your input on this, just a sanity check to make sure I not missing anything. Thanks.
