5ik60a-aful oriental motor

Postby lukebarber » Thu Dec 15, 2016 10:41 am

Hi, I need to know how to run this motor. It is a 5IK60A-AFUL lead wire motor with no geared on it, just a belt pulley. There are plenty of markings that the experienced engineer could follow easily, but being new to single-phase motors (I don't know how much about them more than the name). Can I connect this to AC Tech's VFDs?

Hi lukebarber,

The 5IK60A-AFUL motor is a round shaft type, single-phase induction motor. Oriental Motor's single-phase AC motors are all permanent split capacitor types. Permanent split capacitor motors contain an auxiliary winding offset by 90 electrical degrees from the main winding. The capacitor is connected in series with the auxiliary winding, causing the advance of current phase in the auxiliary winding. Therefore, this motor needs to be connected to the capacitor which came with the motor. Originally, this motor came with the CH120CUL capacitor which is a 12 uF capacitor. You can reference page A-62 (electronically page 5) of the link below for a reference on wiring the 5IK60A-AFUL motor to the capacitor:

A VFD (Variable Frequency Drive), otherwise known as an inverter, can be connected to a three-phase induction motor. However, since the 5IK60A-AFUL is a single-phase induction motor, it will not be able to be connected to a VFD.
