Hi all, thanks for the comments!!!
I drew these schematics as basic as possible, to keep them as simple as possible.
Only reasons for the 460 VAC input and control circuit were to keep the motor's windings proper [notice how they are series connected, rather than parallel?], and also to show simple control circuitry.
Believe me, I would use a control transformer here!!! Next set of schematics will be more detailed and will include control transformers where applicable.
JBD:Ya, I should have drawn the motor contacts in order - just thought this way would make it easier for people not familiar to motor control circuits. I figured this would better show how the reversal of the Lines is accomplished. Thank you for the heads up! Future drawings will be done more pro!
This schematic shows a crude and basic interlocking control circuit with N.C. contacts for the interlocks in the control circuits for F and R.
This schematic is by no means the best method for this control. It's just to show basics.
Glad that you all made comments about this so others would not begin applying these simple setups to real world applications!!!
I need to remember that when posting schematics on-line, and make note of these facts when posting basic stuff.
Once again, thanks for the comments!!! Hope to have more drawings posted this weekend.
