See Additional Added Info: I have an electric motor that I want to plug in at my house (USA). The device is 220V, 50hz and 600watt. The power cord (no plug) is 3 wires, and rated as 10amp.
If I connect a dryer plug to this cord, will I be able to plug it in to my dryer receptacle? Should I worry that the cord is only rated at 10amp?
Additional Info: Power cord actually came with it unexpectedly (opened the box tonight) and it's plug is exactly the same as a typical 110V 3 prong grounded plug. Is this even possibly going to work? I thought 220V required 2 hot, 1 neutral, optional ground? In this configuration, I assume the normal ground plug is actually neutral and the two parallel plugs are both hot? Is it a big deal if I don't ground the device? Do they even make 220V capable receptacles approved for this purpose in this configuration? Seems like a nightmare to have a 220V unit hanging around with the same plug/receptacle as a 110V device!!! Accident waiting to happen?!
This is actually a oil-less piston air pump (not a motor), in case it matters.
