So, I am in the process of setting up shop. I have the tools, 3 of which are 3 phase, and now I have to power them. I have the wiring figured out like this: 1 phase sub-box powering 10hp RPC, to 3 phase breaker box, to Turn-Lock plugs to motor starters to on/off switches.
Now, the question is what equation should I use to know how to size the 3 phase circuits. Right now I am planning on one circuit per machine. The machines are:
5 HP 14” Rockwell RAS
Right now I can get good deals on 20A and 30A 3 phase breakers. Which should go where and why?
-- I hope the volume of shavings one creates is directly related to the probablility of one's success, cuz if so I've got it made!!
