I bought the new Dayton 3 phase 208/230vac blower model #3HMJ8. There is 3 wires red/white/black and next to the diagram for each wire on the blower is a letter. I don’t know what these letters mean.. my goal is to have it hooked up to a clothes dryer cord/plug that’s 240v so I can just plug it in and use as a fan as needed.. can anyone tell me how to hook his up.... graingers instructions are horrible I emailed them no reply yet
This is North American residential standard 240Vac split phase (120L1,120L2+N)
For bigger motors, some people buy VFD generators. 1 to 3Ph.
It is not a perfect match and supplies 240V ph-ph instead of 208~230V ph-ph rated. It might have 50% speed since 60Hz requires more voltage than 50V motors (V/F) and the phases are not balanced.
This is my estimate of what you need. I have not done this myself.
The cap you must buy may be used for PFC or Motor Start/run cap rated > 400Vac. Depending on inductance of motor, determines value of 40uF cap. Seach for better values online or measure actual motor inductance.
