If you know that 220 has 3 wires usually 2 the same color and one
differentcolor. The different colored wire is the natural or
ground wire in the fuse box. The other two are your hot wires. Each
one of them cares 110 volts. thus the two together give you 220 v.
that said if you only want 110 v connect one wire to the buss bar
on the side with all the other wires connectedto it (that is your
neutral wire) then connect one wire to one side of a circuit
breaker or directly to the incoming main wires going to the circuit
breakers. make sure you first kill all power to the circuit
breaker box before you try to connect directly to the incoming
wires as they will be HOT if you did not cut the power off before
it got there."
This is so wrong! The intentions of people of this forum are without
a doubt good, however.
Get proper from the land you're going to concerning the
wiring diagram i. e. coloring of electric circuits.
The used colors I know of (for Belgium, Germany, Netherlands) for
220VAC 50Hz circuits are:
Yellow/green = ground
Blue = neutral wire
Brown = Hot wire
White and red are switching wires (for example :swithing of one item
with several swithes)
Don't monkey around with electrical wiring if you don't know about
Insurance will let you down when you change circuitry of your or a
Neutral and ground wire is not the same wire.
The ground wire is connected to the earth, wherever it is.
The neutral wire -aswell as the brown wire- is connected to the
electricity company or provider.
Some country's work with two wires for 220V carrying 110V on each of
them, but not all country's do so.
Opposite fases make 220VAC out of it.
Electricity is not rocket sience but country's have their own rules
Some of them are flexible others are straight forward.
Some are flexible untill something happends and one have to pay for
Be carefull and act wise, you're not dealing with a 9V battery.
Here is a link of colorcodes but still, get in contact with a local
