Power Whip (3-phase, 208V or 277V)
The Power Whip is an installation component used to connect the eGauge meter to a breaker panel.
Each Power Whip includes a 5-pin Power Plug and four 8’ lengths of THHN #12 stranded copper wire for Neutral, L1, L2 and L3. Available in 208V (white, black, red blue) and 277V (white, yellow, orange, brown).
1x 5-pin power plug (attached to wires via epoxy)
4x 8' segments of THHN #12 wire (NEC color coded for US voltage)
The 5-pin power plug is connected to the 4 segments of wire via epoxy. Trim the wire segments to length and connect the appropriate colors to the correct breaker and neutral connections. Insert the 5-pin power plug to eGauge when complete.
If the 208V whip is used on a single-phase 208V or 240V system, the blue wire (L3) should be removed from the whip assembly.
