I have replaced the motor on my saw bench with a nearly identical motor. The new motor has a brake and therefore there is an additional wire. Where should this wire be connected?
I am confident with the standard wiring:- Live = Red Neutral = Blue Earth = Yellow and green The additional wire is white and I assume it should be bridged into one of the circuits, which will release/activate the brake.
I had huge problems getting a motor brake to come on at the right time, it needs releasing before you power motor and applying after power removed and even with a PLC (Programmable logic control) I could not get timing right, and in the end swapped motor for one where it was all integral.
This is not some thing to be done with a forum, too easy to make errors.
I was not being "funny" you have the motor, I do not. All you have said is you have a motor and how do you connect it. You have given no further information hence my question of what do the instructions say.
