I actually know how to wire it up, I just can't remember if the L(1,2,3) gets connected to the motor (load) or to the 3 phase source (line). I drew a schematic, can someone tell me if I have the contacts correct or are they reversed. Thanks (MD).

OMG I'm about to fall outta my chair. When I saw the heading on the main page, I thought it said: "How to wire a contRactor to a motor". I was thinking "we're not THAT bad, are we? :rolleyes: :( )

L1,2,3 is the line side.
T1,2,3 is the load to the motor
Thanks Speedy Petey, now just have to remember --- L=line, L=line, L=line. OK got it.

So I drew it backwards, so I'll reverse it and stick it in my file.

Well, first you gotta get him glued down real good. Then the white wire goes on his left thumb and the black wire goes on the third leg of his system......Take a buxom blonde:eek: and have her do jumping jacks and watch that motor spin.....



No.. most aren't that bad -- and I tell ya, that would really smart.
