    Home / industrial wiring help

    I am hooking up a spray booth in my shop and looking for a little electrical help in making sure all gets hooked up properly.

    Quick background, I have good knowledge of home wiring and no trouble doing any of that. I have never hooked up a magnetic switch and just want to be sure. The wiring in the motor is also "not standard"

    Motor is a 1.5 HP 230v single phase.

    What size breaker do I use when comparing fla to the running amps used?

    The motor has 6 wires in the junction box. T1,t2,t3,t4,t5,t8
    When opened 4,5 where twisted together. 1 by itself, 2,3,8 twisted together. (Use to seeing red and black)
    What goes to what in hooking up the wire?



    Finally the switch. Do I hook up red to t2 black to t2?


    Upload from tap talk and not sure if the pictures are working.

    Thanks for any help you guys can provide.

    I can see a wiring schematic inside the peckerhead in the second picture. It should have the legend for which numbered wire to join for different voltages.
    Always base your wire size and breaker for FLA (full load amps) and breaker size should be 20% above FLA. Also,it really doesnt matter on 220 single phase what the color code is....but I usually hook black to T1 and red to T2...just out of habit

    Great info thanks. The label inside was useless but I did recheck and see it now on the main label. That is buried against the wall.

    Now I have to ask, is it called a peckerhead or is that a cell phone typo?

    So in this case at 220v fla rating of 8.7 x 20% is 10.4. So a 15 amp breaker?

    Feed wires go to t1 and 2. Where does the load attach in this switch. I assume L1 and 2?




    Thanks

    I had to google that too, they have some funny definitions,

    But the one used here is: Pecker, or more fully, "pecker head", is a slang term for an electric motor terminal connection box.
    Just my 2 cents and thanks for my laugh of the day.

    That will be close, RGD is very close, but just a bit off on a couple of points. I have to go out to the barn and do chores, when I come back in I will go down the list , and clear it all up for you. As a practical matter, with this small of a motor, the end result will be the same, but I want to make sure that you understand how to get there according to the NEC.

    That is an industry standard term. But I think Randy smiles really big every time he says it.
