    Re: Hydraulics myths

    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    How I read that terminal box and diagram, they are both 3phase.

    You are wiring the LH diagram as Star connected because each of the 3 windings has one end that goes to the linking plates, its...

    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    Saw plug has 1 x earth & 3 x live 240v pins

    The converter socket should be as above but with the addition of a neutral so you can have a 240v supply ie- controlgear, lighting etc.

    In your case...
