# What size breaker do I need for 60 hertz?

## What size breaker do I need for 60 hertz?

Range Gas (posted 2010) – 110 -120 volt, 60 hertz, properly grounded branch circuit protected by a 15/20 amp circuit breaker or fuse. Must be properly grounded and polarized.

### How much is 60 Hz in amps?

60 Hz refers to the frequency of the power. In general, unless you are in some special off site situation, all power is 60Hz in the USA. So I think it is safe for you to forget about the 60Hz bit of information, and just take it for granted. I think that the power, hence amps you need is 15 amps.

#### How many Hz is 3phase?

The windings are arranged such that the currents are at the same frequency but with the peaks and troughs of their wave forms offset to provide three complementary currents with a phase separation of one-third cycle (120° or 2π⁄3 radians). The generator frequency is typically 50 or 60 Hz, depending on the country.

Can a 208V be 3 phase?

208V 3 Phase power has 3 electrical legs (phases) evenly spaced in a circle (360 degrees / 3 phases = 120 degrees) around a center (neutral). Each leg (phase) provides power (phase voltage) at a unique angle (phase angle) to the center (neutral). These are technically more accurate because they refer to the neutral.

What size breaker do I need for 50 60 Hz?

For most applications, using a 60 Hz rated Eaton medium voltage vacuum circuit breaker on a 50 Hz circuit is acceptable.

## How do I get 208V 3-phase?

For three-phase, you connect line 1 to line 2 and get 208 volts. At the same time, you [can] connect line 2 to line 3 and get 208 volts. And you [can] connect line 3 to line 1 and get 208 volts.

### Is 208 considered high voltage?

The high-voltage (208 or 480 volts) is available as either single- phase or 3-phase.

#### What wire do you use for 3 phase?

Three-phase power is like having three men of equal strength pushing that same car up the same hill. The three hot wires in a three-phase circuit are colored black, blue and red; a white wire is the neutral and a green wire is used for the ground.
