We have a bit of a situation, I'll do my best to explain.
Press brake is off 208/480V step up transformer. Wanting to hook up a spot welder off of the press brake. Obviously with proper disconnects as it's already a bit of a sketchy set up, being as the welder should be on it's own circuit. The spot welder is 575 volt, 15kVA. So we have another xer 480/600V for the welder. Wondering if we are going to have enough amps to run the welder? Both machines will never be on at the same time.
