# How To Hook Up A 480V 208V And 120V Transformer

This video will show you how to hook up a transformer for 480v, 208v and 120v. The transformer will have three primary wires: red, black, and yellow. The secondary will have four wires: red, black, white, and green. The transformer will also have a ground wire that is green or bare copper.

## How To Hook Up A 480V 208V And 120V Transformer

There are a few ways to hook up a 480v 208v and 120v transformer. One way is to have the 480v and 208v windings in series, with the 120v winding in parallel with the 208v winding. This would create a transformer with a voltage of 216v. Another way is to have the 480v and 208v windings in parallel, with the 120v winding in series with the 208v winding. This would create a transformer with a voltage of 240

– 480v 208v and 120v transformer – screwdriver – wire strippers – pliers – electrical tape – voltage tester

• Connect the 480v wire to one side of the transformer
• Connect
• Connect the 208v wire to the other side of the transformer
• Locate the transformer and identify the 480v, 208v, and 120v wires

-transformer must be rated for the load -transformer must have the same voltage on each winding -transformer must be properly grounded -the load must be properly grounded

### How Do I Get 208V From 480V?

A transformer can be used to step 208V down from 480V.

### Can You Get 208V From 480V?

Yes, you can get 208V from 480V by using a transformer to decrease the voltage.

### How Do You Get 277 From 480?

To get 277 from 480, divide 480 by 2 and then subtract 7.

## In The End

There are a few things to keep in mind when hooking up a transformer: be sure to match the voltage of the transformer to the voltage of the system, and make sure that the amperage of the transformer is sufficient for the system. Also, be sure to use caution when working with high-voltage systems.
