Wiring diagram for two speed moto explained. Three phase see below single voltage.
20 years ago i wired it to 240 volts but i wanted to switch it back to 120 volts.
Dual voltage motor wiring diagram. Dual voltage electric motors are designed to run on either amount of power though they are commonly labeled as 110 220v motors out of habit by manufacturers and can be set to use one voltage or the other.

I have received several requests to cover this topic. Electric motor wire marking connections. Two speed one winding vt or ct m s single voltage.
This happened to be the case for the 1 5 hp motor for my old table saw. Power and control circuit for 3 phase two speed motor. Three phase wiring diagrams always use wiring diagram supplied on motor nameplate colored leads are only applicable on the new rolled steel motor lines single phase wiring diagrams always use wiring diagram supplied on motor nameplate for motors with thermal protection single voltage single rotation single voltage reversible rotation dual voltage single rotation split phase motor.
How dual voltage motors work and how to wire them even without the wire labels. But sometimes when you open up a motor there s just six wires and no diagram. The best way to change the voltage on a motor is to follow the wiring diagram on the label.
For specific leeson motor connections go to their website and input the leeson catalog in the review box you will find connection data dimensions name plate data etc. To convert a 220v motor to 110v mode then all you need is to adjust the wiring configuration.

The reason why motor manufacture design dual voltage is to make this motor available for any country used because every country have a different voltage value such as 200 vac 600 vac and 415 vac it also so for marketing strategy to increase their profit margin. Wiring a 110 or 220 volts split phase capacitor start ac motor to achieve a dual voltage 110 and 220 volts connection and to be able to run the motor in both forward and reverse direction can be achieved by knowing the order and arrangement of its internal coil winding connection and its associated internal electrical components. Two speed one winding chp m s single voltage.
