Thread: Switch for motor?
I have recently bought a tapping machine with a 3 phase motor. I have changed the motor to single phase. The spec of the motor is as follows:
I need to buy a green and red push bottom switch to attach to the machine but have no idea of the technical name for it? Any ideas? A link to website would be appreciated too.
It's a "motor starter", ebay is full of them but you need to disallow "starter motor" when you search
Or search for a 'DOL' as they are also known asIf the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
If the motor is only 0.18KW then you dont actually need a starter. Control gear is only required for motors with ratings above 0.37KW if I remember correctly.
