Basic 2 Phase 3 Wire Squirrel Cage Induction Motor drawings, with rotation schemes.

Dual speed, single winding 2 Phase Squirrel Cage Rotor Induction Motor.

Connections can be done physically hard wired, or via contactors.

Look for more exciting motor and control circuit schematics at a theater near you!!! [or at least look for them here soon!].

Discussion thread to come soon, or feel free to create one yourself!
