Look on the motor's identification plate, information booklet or specifications. You will need to know the wattage of the device and whether it uses a single- or three-phase circuit. If you cannot find the phase circuit, look at the power connection. Four wires is a dead giveaway that it is a three-phase circuit. If there are only three wires, then it is probably a single phase.
Divide the number of watts by the voltage to calculate the amperage for a single-phase circuit. Since this is a 240-volt device, you would divide the watts by 240 volts. For example, a 1,800-watt device would use 7.5 amps.
Divide this figure by 1.732 to calculate the amps for a three-phase circuit. In the example, 7.5 divided by 1.732 would give you 4.33 amps.
