I'm trying to make a board for controlling a reversible single phase induction motor. The board simply needs to be able to turn on/off the motor and control the direction.
My understanding is that for single phase motors some kind of capacitor is used to shift the phase of the AC input. So by switching which "line" the capacitor is connected to, direction control is established.
Going from a black box view of the motor would look something like this:
Does that seem correct?
In reality it seems that 1 phase motors come with more complicated configurations. Some have 7 wires and support different voltages.
How should a control board interface (connections) look like if it is intended to support a variety of motors?
Maybe something based on this:
Would the above be considered a general interface to such motors (allowing the user to select his own)?
