I have a single phase single volt (UK 220-240) 1Hp electric motor with two capacitors, start and run. As photographed. This is to run my Milling machine. I need to connect the motor, via appropriate switch gear, to mains AC. I appreciate the earth wire connects to the "seventh" terminal at the side. But I have no idea where the Live and Neutral wires need to connect.
I appreciate that the metal strips (as photographed, shown between U1/W2 and V1/U2) manage the rotation, and presently are connected for forward/clockwise rotation, and can be changed to U1/V1 and W2/U2 for reverse/counter-clockwise rotation (which I will probably use). But for either scenario (CW or CCW), to which of the terminals should the Live and Neutral AC wires be connected?
If someone could offer a clear answer please - in terms of U1 etc as per photograph - as I've scoured the internet and have fried my brain looking at too many conflicting options (mostly involving 3phase despite specific search criteria).
