Just taken delivery of several new machines, pics and gloat at a later time once all installed :)
The manual, as would be expected of a generic machine, is, err, generic. The section on “Grounding”, the only reference to the wiring says “The conductor with the green insulation (with or without yellow stripes) is the equipment grounding conductor. DO NOT connect the equipment grounding conductor to a live terminal”
Ok, so I thought it could be a different standard to the standard standard, been googling and nothing so now wondering if it’s the chinese’ idea of a joke, seems to be the only colour combo that doesn’t exist in standards, apart from as 3 hot wires in a 3 phase installation Ground is green is ground as far as I am aware.
Anyone got any ideas or do I have to wait till tomorrow to speak to the supplier, who I am sure will not know offhand and it will take a week or more of hounding them till they find out. Or maybe I will get impatient and pull the starter box/motor connections apart to work it out. I want to get a plug on this thing…
