New “W Type” Terminal Box on Brother Gearmotors 1 HP ~ 3 HP

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Fri Sep 02, 2016 12:42 pm

Brother Gearmotors has upgraded their terminal box on all their 1 HP up to 3 HP ie3 efficiency geared motors (208-230-480 VAC) to now include a terminal connection inside the terminal box. This requires a different terminal box and replaces the existing E type terminal box / part number with the new W type.
