I'm wanting to use a 220v, 50Hz, 6000w Infrared Flash Dryer but don't have a way to power it currently... Additionally, the appliance comes without a plug... just 3 wires ready to be connected to a plug.
I've done some research and figured out that I should be using a 30amp breaker with #8 wire (it'll be more than 25ft from the box).
How do I know what receptacle and plug to use? I read that NEMA 10 is typically used for clothes dryers and stuff and that I should be looking at NEMA 14, but it has 4 prongs and the appliance only has 3 wires... 🤔
If you suggest NEMA 10, would it hurt to go with NEMA 14? If I were to use NEMA 14, would I ignore the ground or the neutral when adding the plug onto the appliance?
