    As for welders they are better. Even sine wave, lots of overlapping bumps is better than a bump-flat bump-flat.........
    Sorry, that should read 1.732

    quick electrician question about 3 phase

    I have never dealt with 3 phase power.

    When they say a welder draws 30 amps three phase does that mean it draws 10 amps on each phase or 30 amps on each phase.

    Will a single lever 30 amp 3 phase breaker trip when any leg sees 30 amps or any leg is above 10 amps or the total is 30 amps?
