We want to emphasize that Watlow remains open for business and committed to designing and manufacturing thermal solutions during this challenging time. Continue reading.

Typical 3-Phase Wiring Diagrams and Equations for Resistive Heaters

Definitions

For Both Wye and Delta (Balanced Loads) Wye and Delta Equivalent
VP= Phase Voltage
VL= Line Voltage
IP= Phase Current
IL= Line Current
R = R1 = R2 = R3 = Resistance of each branch
W = Wattage

 

WDELTA= 3 WWYE
WODELTA= ¾ WDELTA
WOWYE= ½ WWYE
