What are the wiring connections for a 3 phase motor starter?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

The incoming three phase supply connects to the starter terminals L1, L2, and L3. The out going voltage to the motor connects to the starter terminals T1, T2, and T3. If the motor turns the wrong way interchange any two of the T terminal wires at the motor.
