Both of these wires should be either black or red for their entire exposed length inside of the breaker panel. Connecting the terminal connections on a system aren't all that different than installing any other appliance, fixture or receptacle except that the wire and connection hardware is usually bigger and a little bit harder to work with and there is an extra "hot" wire.
If you are wiring for straight equipment such as a water heater then you can use a three conductor hookup such as XWG. This picture above shows a dryer cord at the dryer end with 3 wires only, No ground wire.
In the example in the picture the dryer doesn't have color hookup on the wires, follow direction above; if the dryer cord does have colored wires, white is the neutral wire to the center connector, the red and black wires are the hot live wires which connect to the 2 outer connections of the dryer terminal block, don't forget the ground strap or green wire jumper from the center connector to the dryer frame.
The green wire, or bare copper wire, is the ground, which is there for electrical safety. Use a 30 amp volt double pole breaker in the panel. The center conductor of the pigtail is connected to the center screw of that same connecting block inside the dryer.

I need to add a outlit to my hookup for a kiln. It is always best to remove the load from a breaker before shutting it off. A Safety Note about Breakers A breaker designed to be used with v, is a dual double breaker that actually when mounted into the panel connects to both phases of the incoming powerin other words connects to both the red and hookup panel lugs colors in illustration, your panel is not colored but will be alternating between phases from one lug to the next. In order to use a direct connection, the appliance must be within 50 feet Main panels cannot usually be de-energized by turning off breakers.
Continue to 9 of 10 below. Remove the hookup plate over the breakers called the dead front panelwithout touching any wires inside the panel. Never oversize a breaker to solve a tripping breaker problem!

Take note as to how the breaker locks into position in the panel. I turned off the breaker. In the below diagram you will notice that for a hookup outlet you would need a two pole breaker.
Yes you can have volt outlets in your house. I made some bends so the wire would lay in an orderly fashion. Use a 30 amp volt double pole breaker in the panel.
The red and black wires are hot live wires and get connected to the 2 outer connectors on the dryers power terminal block, doesn't matter which is which as long as it is the outer two connectors.
