I am going to be using a contractors type of generator for using some of my on site architectural metal work. This is work that I may do with a metal lathe, milling machine, TIG welder or plasma cutter.

I don't know what part of the outlets are which wire. This is 15Kw, Single Phase generator. I haven't had any luck by looking on the net. Here is the page in the manual with the outlets listed.

I numbered the prong holes, so there can be no confusion between us.

Many thanks,

Jerry

What country are in. The upper right image I have not seen used in North America. It looks like Autralian.

Generally the L shape or D shape is the ground. The terminals marked X and Y are the hots.

Outlet A looks like a NEMA L5-30, 30 amp 1205 volt twistlock. The bent slot (3) should be the equipment ground of the remaining 2 slots, I'd guess that the widest one would be the grounded conductor (neutral).

Outlet B is a NEMA L14-30, 125/250 volt, 30 amp twistlock Slot 1 should be the equipment ground. Not sure about the rest, but they will be one neutral & 2 hots. If you stop by an electrical supply house, they should be able to show you one of these, then you'll know for sure.

Outlet C is a NEMA14-50, 50 amp receptacle. Hole #1 is the equipment ground. Slot 3 is probably the neutral. Again, a trip to the supply house is in order.

As to the diagram I have a link to, here is the wiring arrangement:

A (NEMA L5-30R)

1--Neutral

2--Hot

3--Ground

B (NEMA L14-30R)

1--Ground

2--Hot #1

3--Neutral

4--Hot #2

C (NEMA 14-50R)

1--Ground

2--Hot #1

3--Neutral

4--Hot #2

Hope this help some body else out there,

Jerry
