I was trying to warn you for your own safety. I thought you were attempting some ill-advised do-it-yourself hack. So why didn't you post what you have drawn? Just because I'm not qualified to answer the question doesn't mean the answer is not available.I am an application engineer, I just want to confirm the connection that I have drawn
If truly 230v then it could be the UK, where it is one phase and star neutral. in N.A. it would be 240v .if it is in an area where the mains source is 230 volts, one side being neutral. It is also correct in the US, where 230 volts will not have one side tied to neutral.
In many parts of the US, that "240" is more like 230 volts, or even 225 volts some days. And the 120 is often about 117, or down to 115 some days.If truly 230v then it could be the UK, where it is one phase and star neutral. in N.A. it would be 240v .
In the U.S., and in fact everywhere in North America, the standard voltage is 120v- 240v , established in USA as a standard in 1967.In many parts of the US, that "240" is more like 230 volts, or even 225 volts some days. And the 120 is often about 117, or down to 115 some days.
Mains voltages are nominal, design targets, not constant, at least not that I have experienced.
