    3 phase : rotation of motor.

    Donkey's years ago if you wanted to change which direction a 3 phase electric motor ran you just swapped two of the live wires over (after switching everything off obviously !) Can anyone tell me if that is still the case please ? TIA for any advice/help.

    Yes, just swap over any two of the three live conductors (usually done in the motor's terminal box) which will reverse the rotation.

    Thanks Peter. Was hoping you would come up with a reply.
