Recommended copper wire gage and transformer size for single phase - 230 Volts - electrical motors
All wiring and electrical connections should comply with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and with local codes and practices.
|Wire Gage (AWG)|
|Transformer||Distance from Motor to Transformer (feet)|
- 1 ft (foot) = 0.3048 m
If undersized wire is used between the motor and the power source, the starting and load carrying capabilities of the motor will be limited.
