"If you use one wire and the neutral, you get 120 V." Is that the proper way to do it? That is also news to me!

When ah was a kid, me muma send me ah radio from America, dummy me ah rig the thing so ah could plug it in.  It lasted two seconds.  NH you go and follow RD direction and you go see wha go happen to your appliance or what ever you plug in.

Well, that oversimplifies it a bit since there is two phase and three phase 240v and not all sites can get three phase power.  That said, my explanation is still correct.  It is no coincidence that 120V is half 240V as this diagram shows the wiring.

It's also worth noting that the transformer outside your house has 7,200 V in it.   So don't mess with that! smile

It was so sad when Mott Green of the Grenada Chocolate Factory cooperative electrocuted himself - as you can see he'd made quite a name for himself and the product:

I didn't know that.  I went there and visited his facility when I was down there a few years ago.  So sad.

I remember laughing as I saw workers in Grenada wearing winter coats working in the refrigerated area.   Later, when I was running the phone company on Guam, my employees did the same thing in the air conditioned switch room.  Even if it is hot outside, it is cool inside.
