I have ordered a 3HP 3 Phase motor. I had a choice between 2 motors, a TECF and a TECF Haz Location. I chose the latter and didn't notice the voltage requirement was different from the TEFC . The standard TEFC had a 208-230/460 volt range and I made an assumption that the other motor was the same. I just noticed that it is a 230/460. My power system is a 208 3 PH. Am I going to be able to run the motor off this lower voltage without doing harm? Or am I going to have to get a boosting transformer? The voltage is about 9.5% low, usually a 10% variance is considered OK for motors. There is a thermal shutoff control within the motor. Will this protect it if it gets to hot from the low voltage? Thanks for your help.
