How do you hard wire an Inalto Ceramic Cooktop given the following connecting points:- L1, L2 on one side of the connecting plate and N1, N2 on the opposing side of the connecting plate, with a PE (earth) point at the bottom end of the connecting plate. I have only three wires to connect one active, one neutral and one earth. An Australian connection.

    How many watts does this pull, and what's the amperage rating of the circuit you're connecting it to? Aug 4 '19 at 13:26
  • The cooktop pulls 6.0kw and the amperage of the circuit is 15amps.

There's just not enough power there

A 15A 240VAC circuit can only supply 3.6kW, or slightly under half of what your cooktop draws. You'll need to have a bigger radial circuit put in, dedicated to the cooktop/cooker setup; I presume a 32A circuit would be a standard size in Australia, provided you are served with a single phase.
