Hey guys I have a quick question. Im about to wire up some plugs and Im not certain as to what is the HOT side and what is the Earth & Ground side.


Now for the PSU side
1= Power?
2= Ground?
3= Earth?




For the wall plug
1= Earth
2= Ground
3= Power?

Well, The easiest method would be look to see how the current one is hooked up. Its a cord so it needs to be the same on both ends. Which brings us to the problem, not all cords use the same color of wire to be matched to the other side. Its running an alternating current so both 1e and 3p need to be the same on both sides. In example the wire need to goto the corresponding spot on the other side.

I do know that 2g is the ground. But what the other two mean I don’t know. I do know if you can determine what color cables underneath goto what then your set as all you need to do is match them up. But if you cant see them on one side it makes it difficult because you don’t know what color of wire they used for what? If that makes sense.

Check out this guide it might help a tad: http://www.overclock.net/other-hardw...ower-cord.html

Yea those moments are bummers, but heres the thing if you never have those your doing something wrong. Half the fun is learning new and interesting ways to do things and I cant even remember how many times a project has blew up in my face, but shortly after turned into a win.
