I need help connecting a water pump and controller - single phase. The controller has a power cable and this is wired, L1, N and earth (marked this way on the controller box). The pump has a cable (3 core) that needs to be connected to the controller box and is marked earth, U and V. I have no idea to which of these terminals I should connect the live and neutral wires.
Please can someone give me the answer to this. I'm completely stumped and need to pump some water.
Check appliance w/ ohmmeter to determine whether U and V have any continuity to earth. If not, then it probly doesn't matter. However Plazz let's hope we hear from Eng or one of the other techs
L1 to V, N to U, earth to earth. (This the European standard). if in doubt check the wiring instructions you should have got with the pump, or which should be on the maker's web site.
or one of the other techs
And that'd be Con of course
Thanks guys, much appreciated. Pump came with very little information just a diagram showing 3 wires, one connected to earth, one to V and one to U and a note saying "Made in China".
Yea Plazz, in fact have serveral AA-size batts, rechargeable but not labeled as such
. China of course
