I have a European (230 volt AC motor, no markings), 1 phase (I think). It is roughly 6 inches long, just to get a sense of the scale.
It basically wobbles when current is supplied to it.
1) I need to figure out which leads connect to ground, neutral and live.
2) I also need to figure out what kind of transformer I need to use. All I know is that it needs to convert the voltage from 110V (in the US) to 230V (so that the European motor can use the power).
I read about how to do it when there is live voltage, in a situation where you need to figure out which wire are which in a house with running current. How do you do so with a cold circuit? How do I do it without first connecting (and possibly shorting) the motor to a transformer? How do I know which wires to connect to what before doing so?
All I have is this shabby old multimeter, but it works.
Motor is .2Amps 240V and 45 watts.
