As I have little understanding about electricity apart from being able
to follow simple wiring diagrams I would like some help with a project
I have in mind.
I have a DC electric motor, which if it is suitable, I would like to
use on my Atlas Lathe to give variable speed control. The motor was
taken off a Philips washing machine about ten years ago but had had
only one year of use. It is marked
Polymotor Italiana ApA, DC P.M. Motor A1 M02 Class E
22 5 110 800 85
V A W RPM % Duty
200 1.8 360 10,500 15
I would like to know what this motor is equivalent to in the terms of
wattage or horsepower compared to a single phase AC motor.
If the motor is suitable a second problem arises. I have all the motor
control equipment that came out of the washing machine including the
variable speed control, but no wiring diagram. This is despite a
considerable amount of time searching on the internet. Any ideas on
how to work out a wiring diagram from the parts I have would be
Thanks in anticipation.
