Can you run 240v on 208v?
Just so, can you run a 208 volt motor on 240 volts?
Even though the system voltage of 3 phase 208 is within the -10% rating of the three phase 230 v motor, the 208 is allowed to vary to -10% or 187 volts -- and the motor will not work at that level. This motor was built to be used on 240V system.
Also, will a 230v motor run on 208v? A 208V rated motor should not be run on 240V, nor should a 230V rated motor be run on 208V, motors rated 115/200-230V or 115/208-230V are fine either way, older 3Ø motors rated 220/440V will be fine on either a 208 or 240volt supply when connected for lower voltage.
Similarly, you may ask, will a 240v stove work on 208v?
Most cooking appliances are rated at 240 volt. The nominal voltage is 240 volt, but homes may have 208V, 220V, or 240V power supply. Any appliance that is rated for 240 volts and can also be used on a 220V or 208V outlet.
Will a 240v dryer work on 208v?
Re: 240V Dryer On 208V It will be fine, starting torque will be a little weaker but typically that's more of an issue with washers.
