Okay I greatly appreciate your input with this project.Yes it is correct. I had to re draw it in a way I could understand it. (I am an electrician) I wasn't sure what you were trying to do and I was reading it backwards.
One last question do you think I need to put fuse before he batter into relay or to each + dc jack going back to the controllers like 3a fuse one 2.75a one and 2a fuses on the other two that were 1.75a or no need for fuses?It should power what you want no problem.
Add total watts and divide by volts (120v). That will give you total amps.Greetings... I need some very “basic” information (for my very “basic” brain to comprehend ):
Assuming a wall of standard home outlets running to a standard home’s electrical box, I’d like to know what amount of equipment I can safely plug in without tripping the fuse. All the equipment is in “watts” (pump, heater, lights, wave makers, etc.)— how do I add up all the wattage and know what impact that has on a 15 amp fuse (which I assume is standard)? Thanks.. keep it simple for me!
Hello all I've got a question. I have three 24v dc pumps. All three power supply's have the same input 100-240v ~50/60. Only thing is two have output of 24V = 1.75A and one has 25V = 2.75A My question is can I use one power supply that's rated same input but output is 24V= 6.25A and eliminate three separate power supply’s ? I would be plugging the new power supply into a dc jack that would be soldered to three separate dc jacks returning to each of the three pumps via three controller. The pumps a jeboa dc pumps. Would the power supply work and split the Amps or not work?
hey,You can not share the neutral from two circuits using a mini breaker. Only if the circuits are on different phases, and they are not with a mini breaker.
Now even if the circuits are on different phases some codes forbid it. (but I don't listen to that and share it anyway like we did since electricity was invented. But don't tell anyone. )
You are correct. Each circuit will have 15 available amps. The 2 pole breaker is just to ensure that the 2 circuits sharing a neutral will both be shut down to avoid back feed on the neutral.hey,
i just stumbled upon this today and i realized my newly purchased/renovated house has one of these multi wire branch circuits. Im in the process of adding a dedicated 20 amp circuit for my tank so i have my panel open for inspection. My 2nd floor is fed by a single 14/3 with ground wire from the panel. They used 2 separate 15 amp breakers. They are stacked on each other so on different legs. After reading these comments i did a bit of research and learned how somebody could be shocked when working on these types of circuits if both breakers are not off. I then remembered i myself had done that on this circuit but luckily did not get shocked. I would like to correct this issue and have it set up properly. i read to use a double pole breaker which ensures the circuit is on two separate phases and that when working on the circuit it will be completely shut off. Is this the right type of breaker to ensure that?
The Eaton Cutler-Hammer 15 Amp 2 in. Double-Pole Type BR Replacement Circuit Breaker protects your home wires from overheating or causing short-circuit. It is ANSI certified and UL listed. It is compatiblewww.homedepot.com
I guess the only other thing i want to understand about these double pole breakers is this: technically a double pole breaker is 2 times the amp rating that it states, right? So a double 15 is allowing 15 on each conductor? It does not limit both conductors to a total of 15 amps, right?
Great, ill pick one up next time im at HD and swap it out. Better safe than sorry. It probably would have been picked up on a home inspection but i waived that in order to stand a chance on this house. Slowly trying to go over everything...You are correct. Each circuit will have 15 available amps. The 2 pole breaker is just to ensure that the 2 circuits sharing a neutral will both be shut down to avoid back feed on the neutral.
