Okay, rewinding what I have is NOT ($$$) an option.
From my previous post:
There are 9 wires coming out of the motor, with metal number tags.
1,2 and 3 all separate, I assume went to the reverse switch, which is
4 and 7 tied together
5 and 8 tied together
6 and 9 tied together
This allowed it to run on our 460 3 phase at the shop.
Will this drop it to 230?
1 and 7 tied together, use as L1 input
2 and 8 tied together, use as L2 input
3 and 9 tied together, use as L3 input
Tie 4,5 and 6 together, insulate and tuck away.
If this will work, then I can get a 230 volt input VFD, waaay cheaper
than rewinding my motor.
Being as how I have no diagram for the motor, I looked at a LOT of
pictures & web pages, and it looks like my current wiring is pretty
standard for a 460v 3 phase motor, which matches the motor plates I
looked at, which had Hi and Low wiring diagrams, which is where I got
the above possible solution for my Low wiring.
