    Just for interest i came across this great site with a wealth of information all about wiring motors, encoders calculations and a lot more. Just make sure you click through the 'next' buttons to see it all.
    If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:

    hello, i purchase 4 GE motors 5KCP39HNB476S 1725 rpm 1/3 hp 115/230 volts to my surprise no mention of size start capacitor is require, i look all over can't find any info as to what size capacitor it needs.... also because I need it for each applications 115v= ? 230v=? or it doesn't matters?????? any help would be greatful.....
