  • Page 9: Avoiding High Voltage Wiring

    Avoiding High Voltage Wiring A common mistake made by wiring technicians is to wire communication cabling in parallel with 120VAC, 240VAC, or 480VAC power wiring (some- times together in the same conduit). High voltage wiring radiates noise in all directions perpendicular from the direction of the wire.

  • Page 21 TECHNICAL NOTIFICATION T080101 Commander SK Size 3 Earth Leakage Current RESOLUTION To eliminate the leakage current problem, the control 0V should be connected to earth/ground at the drive. This can be achieved by: 1. Connecting the 0V directly to the triangular grounding bracket supplied with the drive. 2.
