European and North American wiring has the following differences:
1. Different voltage levels: 110V or 120V, 60Hz AC system in the United States, while 220V to 240V, 50Hz AC system in Europe.
2. Different standards of use: The Electrical system in the United States uses the standard NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association), In Europe, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard is used.
3. Different wiring: In the United States, non-metallic wire sleeves (NM wire sleeves) are used for size 14 to 10 wires, which include all the cables inside the harness. The way wiring is usually done in Europe is by leading individual cables into boxes, circuit breakers and plugs.
4. Different standards for other electrical equipment: In addition to electrical systems, there are also differences in standards between the United States and Europe for other electrical equipment, such as the shape and size of electrical jacks and plugs.
In general, the electrical system wiring in the United States and Europe is different, mainly due to the voltage level of AC, the standard of use and the type of wire. If you need to use electrical equipment in different areas, you need to carefully understand local standards and regulations, and properly install and connect them.
