Why isn't there an Amperage chart on theses motors in the code book???
430.248 just goes up to 230 volts???

Personally,I have never seen a 277V motor.
So I never gave it a thought.

Ditto on Leland's comment.

You could always refer to the motor nameplate, right?

Per 430.6 (A)1 all amperages except for overloads & few exceptions are to come out of tables in Code book.
Since no Table with 277V I guess well have to use Nameplate for all calculations??
And yep theres 277Volt Motors Goggle um there there. These are on a Heat Pump System.

I've seen those and other type units. Also in them was a transformer to step down.

Google was the first thing I did. Always nice to find something new.

It's never to late, & we're never to old to learn. We come here to do that, right???

Yes, as there is no table to use, go to 110.3 (B) and use the nameplate.

Wi/ Paris France { France for ...
There is not a large number of 277 volt motour in use however most common found in HVAC or large electric unit heater AKA electric Renzor heater.

Once a while will find them on the exhaust fan when they are tied to bathroom lighting circuit { this is a grey spot to cross }

The other common place to find 277 volt motor is thru wall heatpump when they are order on 277 volt system.

Merci,Marc
