Default Can someone help me source this

Can someone help me source this. I need: a reversing starter, 24vac control, that’ll handle a 1 phase 220v, 1.5hp motor. I’d bump it up to a 2hp if possible.

Its for a motor for a greenhouse that will be used by growlink.com system.

Is the single phase motor reversible? Not all are. There are also several different types of single phase motors and the way you reverse them (the ones that can be) differs. Start there, because if it IS, then you need to make sure the wiring for how to do that inside of the motor you have is compatible with the type of starter you get.

Most NEMA starter mfrs offer pre-made starters and wiring diagrams for common single phase reversible motors; A-B, Square D, Eaton, Siemens etc. But in IEC starters that are offered by the same people or the low-baller places on the internet, they expect you to "roll your own" by just buying the right components, but rarely tell you what you will need to do that.

As noted above, the type of motor makes a huge difference.

If it has 6 or 7 leads (dual voltage) and reversing it involves swapping the red with black, it's easy. anything else, it's gonna be tricky.......

Further, as noted above, NEMA starters are easy to connect, IEC ones are not. NEMA starters are more expensive but you'll only install them once; IEC.......not so much......

First of all ., welcome to the fourm,

Secondally please fill your profile as it will be on the upper left hand corner say user CP that you click that on and fill the profile as need to be.

Now for the single phase if that is straight 230 volt motor ( not the dual voltage verison ) it kinda pretty easy straight forward to male the connection but as Micromind mention the numbers of tails ( leads or conductors ) coming out of the junction box that will make the difference on how it can be done. the 6 or 7 leads are pretty much common but anything else the bet is out of the window.

the dual voltage verison can be done too but it can get little tricky with connection so pay attention to it very carefully.

the NEMA starter can handle the abuse pretty easy espcally with a bit of reverising on single or three phase motors:
