I need a quick help on wiring
an electric motor
(compressor) to a starter. I have a Baldor 5 hp single phase motor, and a Dayton IEC 2UXW6 starter. And of course 220v at the wall, and a Lefoo LF10-1H pressure controller.
Right now I have the leads from the pressure switch
wired to the starter at T1 and T2. And leads going to L1 and L2 from the 220v power source (not plugged up, obviously). It appears that the switch for the starter is on A2, so that part is fine.
1) I'm not sure what to do with A1. There's a green wire attached at the A1 label on the starter. It has a connector
on the other end. There's a red wire zip tied to that one, connectors on both ends. Right now I have the A1 green going to T1. And the red simply jumpering L2 to T2. But that is just a guess on my part, and could be way off.
2) I planned to run the pressure switch from off the starter, and the motor from there. Is this correct, or is the A1 for running the pressure switch perhaps?
220v source --> L1, L2
T1, T2 --> pressure switch line terminal
pressure switch motor terminal --> motor
3) Just to double-check the Baldor motor. 5hp single phase 220v. There is a yellow fat wire, and a blue fat one. Yellow is 4, I'm assuming blue is 1 (can't find a label on it). Red is 8, black is 5. From the diagram it appears that I just connect 8 and 1 together with one lead from the 220v, and 5 and 4 with the other lead. I don't need this reversing, as it's for a compressor. Is this correct?
Much appreciate the help . . .
