Certain electrical equipment, such as motors, fans or power supplies, can usually be connected in a Delta or Wye configuration. In addition, there is sometimes provided a neutral disconnect to the AC power source for such equipment. Fig. 1 shows a single phase circuit which can be connected in a line-to-line Delta configuration or a line-to-neutral Wye configuration. Fixed female connectors J1 are permanently wired into one line, and fixed female connectors J2 are permanently wired into the neutral line. A prewired male plug is inserted into either Jl for a Delta configuration or into J2 for a Wye configuration.
