I acquired a blower assembly from an old air handling system, with the intention of using it as an exhaust fan in my workshop. With a six-lead set-up, you cannot choose whether you get a high-voltage or low-voltage system, but with a nine-lead set-up, you can select either one, using either configuration. That drawing we said to follow could be wrong. My guess is based on more than three speeds being unlikely and speed being quite sensitive to voltage being likely. He said it sounded like it was single-phasing. Anyway I'll keep you guys up to date on what the end result is but, I think its beginning to look like the motor may have been wired right after all.

Old Robbins and Meyers Motor Wiring Diagram Hi William, Unfortunately I have not been able to locate a wiring diagram for your Robbins and Meyers motor. You will be able to find tables that give ranges based on motor power and voltage. Before you actually make any bolted connections, verify the correct rotation using a rotation tester. Do not forget to share and love our reference to help further develop our website. Connect 4 to 7, 5 to 8, and 6 to 9. On a 12-wire motor wired for high voltage i. Usually the connection diagram is showed by the name plate.
If common to each hot is the same, then changing which wire gets the hot leg, may reverse rotation? Consult the name plate information that is found on the motor, or consult the information from the manufacturer to see if the motor may be wired for a higher voltage. There are 6 leads, all the same color. I think it was the 4-5-6 hooked together and the phase leads being 1-2-3. Keywords for 6 Wire Motor Wiring To Ac 3 Diagram :. Wiring a Motor for 240 Volts Application: Wiring an Electric Motor. More about Kevin and links to his professional work can be found at www. Look for some wiring diagram on the motor nameplates.
Don't want to feed power to any wires until I can tell what is what. This image has been published by Ella Brouillard. Using a pair of diagonal cutters, cut and remove 3 in of rubber insulation around outside of power cord. Stepper motors with these center taps are often referred to as unipolar motors. A basic 4-wire stepper motor is shown in Figure 1.
Yet, with the help of this step by step guide, this task will be become as easy as counting to five. It has been taken back in preparation for use the next time it is needed, so we'll see. I do read all the questions, and if I get the same ones over and over I make videos about it to help lots of people. Verified by using a 12v battery and a light bulb, + to each wire and - to others for each of the colors. This past week one of the shop personnel went out to install a newly rewound motor and could not get it to work right.
Here is the link: I hope this helps, Dave Can I Wire Two 120volt Motors to a 240volt circuit? Again I am not an electrician by trade but, I have taken quite a few courses on the subject and am learning as I go along. Connect 3, 5, and 9 to L3. Measure resistance of the wires to each other. You apply power to one of the other wires depending on which direction you want it to go. I've seen 3 wire single phase motors on tool changers. If both are equal, then it probably does not matter which is which.
The wire with the higher resistance to common is probably the capacitor wire. White is probably neutral, the capacitor probably goes between red and black. Where the incoming hot leg goes, now that's the question. Estimated Time: Depends on personal level experience, ability to work with tools, work with electrical wiring, and the available access to the project area. To learn more, see our.
Meanwhile I had them bring the motor in question back to the shop for some experimenting. I was just wondering if there was some special reason. Would this affect the motor wiring at all? For the higher voltage, connect 1 to L1, 2 to L2, and 3 to L3. Link to video about Centrifugal Switches If you want to chip in a few bucks to support more content like this, please visit my patreon page. This configuration is very similar to the 6-wire configuration and similarly offers the most torque per amp at the expense of high speed performance. What is the connections to run on 110 volts. If the motor hums on high speed when the shaft is free no load the winding is wrong.
Recently I have been promoted to a lead person job and fill in when my Supervisor is out. Do you come here to obtain new fresh idea about 6 wire motor wiring to ac 3 diagram? More re resistance measurements etc. Circuits for Two 120volt Motors Hi Timothy, Using a multi-wire 4wire circuit for two 120volt motors would depend on the type of motors that would be connected and the application. Now when we received this motor it had markings 1 thru 6 on the wires, but no indication as to how they are connected. Estimated Time: Depends on experience with electric motors.
Join your peers on the Internet's largest technical engineering professional community. If you want to know more or withdraw your consent to all or some of the cookies, please refer to the. Connect the remaining leads 4, 5, and 6 together. But have been unsuccessful in getting a 2 speed effect. Figure 3 shows an 8-Wire stepper motor with both windings of each phase connected in series.
