Can anyone help, please!
I know you can run a 3 ph motor on single phase but can you run a
motor supplied a single phase on 3 phase?
I have a milling machine that has been converted to single phase. The
motor for the cross travel has RYB and neutral connections and has a
capacitor connected across RB. Now, my guess is that the mftr makes a
3ph motor as standard and converts to single phase by the use of the
capacitor. I have 3ph so would like to convert back to 3ph. The plate
on the motor does say single phse so it is a manufacturers conversion,
not a home one.
