How To Wire Voltmeter In 3-Phase Wiring

I am going to start with the 3-phase wiring and its 3-phase diagrams, in this post, you will learn how to wire a voltmeter for 3-phase wiring. In this post, I am sharing with you a diagram in which I have shown the complete method of 3 phase 440 V and its wiring with a voltmeter. For 3 phases we use the 0 to 500 volts range voltmeter.

Something about Voltage and Voltmeter

We know that the force required to make the flow of electrons in a conductor is called voltage, and the measurement device which is used for measuring the voltage is called a voltage meter or voltmeter. Note that the Voltage unit is volt and it is denoted by V.
And if a voltage meter has a V symbol then it means that it is a voltage meter.

How to wire Volt meter for 3 phase 440 volts

In three phase supply, we have 3 phase or three Line voltage and one neutral. The phase is denoted by L in every place and I also named wire with names L1, L2, and L3. Note that for 3 phase supply we use wires colours Red, Yellow, and Blue and for neutral always Black.
Now let’s see how to wire 3 phase voltage meter.

In the above diagram, I show 3 phase 4 wire system supply but I only connect L1 and L2 (red and yellow) to the volt meter or voltage meter. for a three-phase voltage meter, you can only connect 2 line wires and if you connect the neutral and phase to the voltmeter then the volt meter shows 220 voltage which is single-phase voltage.
Note that between to phase the voltage will be 440 +/- 5% and between the neutral and phase the voltage will be 220 +/- 5%.
Note that this will be only for those places where the voltage between phase / neutral is 220.


I hope this is a good start in 3 phase wiring topic, and now you will get complete knowledge about 3-phase volt meter wiring. However, I will soon write more posts about the 3 phase. Now if you want to give us some suggestions or any questions regarding this post then use the below comment section.

    The capacitor can hold the vitality in the electric field and it is regularly utilized for putting away the charge for some other time, or for controlling current.Thirdly, you have to test the inductor by turning the multimeter change to the inductor setting. It is typically demonstrated by the letter H. In this progression, you ought to put the dial to the least setting over the part inductance Garage tools.
