I am trying my first 'electronics' project, involving setting up a pond aerator pump. I purchased a Gast air pump, 86R123-101-N170X. However, it came just as it was assembled at the factory and does not contain a conventional 3-prong plug. I would like to add a plug to the exposed wires.
This document shows how it should be wired. I have the 115V unit.
I understand that the brown and yellow wires go to the capacitor.
- Is the white wire considered my positive (+) wire where current flows in?
- Is the joined blue and black wires considered my negative (-) wire where current flows out? The blue and black wires already come twisted together at their tips.
- Do I simply ignore the orange and red wires? They too are already twisted together at this tips. Do I just put a cap on the twisted end?
