I am trying to use an electric motor for a band saw but am not sure if
it is 1Ph or 3Ph or both! The plate gives information for both
220-240volts and 380-420 volts.
There six wires coming out of the motor connected to a block. On one
side of the block there are Blue, Grey and Red wires. On the otherside
there are White, Black and Brown these three are wired together. By
connecting across the Blue,Grey and Red with 240v the motor runs.
Question? If I have got the motor to run does that mean it is 1Ph or
is it just running on much reduced power ?
Will the motor run happily on either 1Ph or 3Ph (with a reduced power
