I'm new to electrical wiring and I'm trying to learn a bit and came across this AC motor which I have that isn't hooked up. I have attached the motor wiring diagram:
I'm trying to make sense of this all and would appreciate any input, here is my understanding on the wiring:
- Line wires are Red, Yellow, and Black? I don't understand the symbol used between the Yellow and Black wires in the diagram.
- White is neutral?
- Green is ground
- The circle symbol between Red and yellow indicate they are both connected to line
- White appears to be connected to blue? is this correct?
Using this diagram, if I connected an AC power cord with hot going to red, ground going to ground, and white going to neutral, would I be able to supply power? I'm guessing the other colored wires may be different motor speeds and I could supply / switch power to the other wires for different speeds?
I know I am probably wrong in a lot of this so any explanation or if someone wants to point me in a direction where I can learn more about things like this I would appreciate it.
