Lincoln Welder

By admin  

Electircal Question, regarding an outlet for an arc welder?

I'm putting in an outlet in my barn for an old lincoln arc welder.

The welder input specs are: 225 amp single phase 50amps

Does my 240 breaker need to have a higher rating than 50 amps? Or is exactly 50 ok?

The original power cable in the welder was 10 gauge. It was cut up, so replaced it with a better cable, same gauge.

If I am only running 2 feet out of the breaker to the outlet, can I use 10 gauge wire also?
--------------
Thanks for the reply,

I'm not sure if my thinking is correct, but with 240, wouldn't I be dividing the amps among the two hot leads? In other words, wouldn't I only be pulling a maximum of 25 amps out of each 10 guage wire?

---
also, There is a panel in the barn already, would I need to pull a new box, or couldn't I just use a 240 breaker off the existing panel?

50 amp breaker will be ok...but it needs to be wired with no 8 wire....and if you have a 50 amp 240 volt breaker that means each leg can carry fifty amps....
