ok here we go again.
it should be ok. i havent first hand had to re wire a 480v, but i know it follows the same general concept as everything else.
it is common misconception that more volts equals more electricity running. but its the opposite. the more volts the less amps are drawn. this is due to a couple of things, but mainly do to the quality and guage of wire.
so think about it as if it were speakers. if you have a couple small speakers, you will only need low guage, cheap audio wire to run them.
but if you get a couple big speakers, you will need a thicker guage audio wire in order to handle the current being drawn, and for sound quality.
so lets say now you have big speakers, and you want to downgrade to smaller speakers.
you will not 'need' or 'have' to buy low guage wire in order for those speakers to work. where as when you got big speakers you had to buy thicker guage wire for them to work. see what i mean?
so you are downgrading in volts. since it was 480, that means you have thick wire- which isnt a problem if you are downgrading, and should cause no troubles rewiring it to a 120. see what im gettin at?
im gunna throw this up on paintshop, and let me know if it doesnt make sense.
also know that there are different varieties in plugs. so try not to get confused by the fked up pics lol . you should get the general idea.
also note that the first post was much better written before it go erased. :laugh:
