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

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.
