Is 5000 watts at 110 volt ?
Wow, don't know why I didn't think about that. The largest circuit breakers and outlets I've seen for 110/115/120 VAC are 20 amps. Anything 30 amps or above is 230 VAC. And like Roger says, the max load for 110/115/120 is typically 1500 watts -- space heaters, hair dryers, etc.I have never seen any device that would be near the power of 5000 watts use 110 volts.
Every normal type of device is limited to 1,500 watts on 110 volts.
There are 220V devices that use 15 Amp and 20 Amp double pole breakers.... Anything 30 amps or above is 230 VAC.
Cool!Actually Roger I have added some solar panels to the roof and I was wondering how much output in amps a inverter would produce. Sorry I didn't answer sooner. New furnace and air being installed today.
Yeah, I have 230 volt/20 amp service in my garage for my MIG welder and compressor.There are 220V devices that use 15 Amp and 20 Amp double pole breakers.
I have an A/C unit in my garage that is 220V and uses a 20A breaker.
But yes, anything above 20 amps is 220V.
There is some specialty stuff that runs higher on 110V but not stuff you normally see.
