This motor has very good versatility and may be used in several power supply applications. It is a dual voltage machine and may be used on either voltage as defined on the connection plate. It is designed for use on a Wye Start, Delta Run starter. This is a special motor contactor which starts the motor on its Wye connection to limit the inrush and then switches to Delta for running. The motor must not be run on the Wye connection for more than 30 seconds as severe winding damage may occur. This motor may also be started across the line and run on the Delta connection. In addition, the motor may be used on the low voltage connection as a part-winding start motor, also to limit the inrush required. After a brief period, it is switched to the full winding.
