Hi everyone, thanks for the comments!!!
I tapped L1 and L3 on these drawings only because it looks a little more clean, along with being quicker to trim a line in AutoCAD.
Not too sure if there's any law against connecting the control circuit to L1-L2 or even L2-L3, since the Line to Line voltage is the same no matter which way it's connected.
spkjpr, you must have been driving the coils from L-N [Line to Ground] in order for the high leg to burn out coils. If they were 240 VAC coils, the high leg to another Line would still be 240 VAC.
That's a good example, though, of when a person should be aware of which Line to choose from. If the control circuit was one Line to ground [neutral or common], and the system was a 4 wire Delta, there's a 1/3 chance in letting the smoke out of said contactor coils.
I made this set of schematics as simple as possible. The only reason for choosing 460 volts is to keep the motor connections simple!
[these are series connected coils, rather than parallel coils for lower voltages]. Also, to keep things simple, I did not include a control transformer.
For the next series of schematics, I'll include a control transformer.
Thanks again for the comments!!! Keep 'em coming!!!
