Constant Torque Connection
Low-speed horsepower is half of high-speed horsepower.*

Constant Torque Connection

Speed L1 L2 L3 Typical Connection
High 6 4 5 1 & 2 & 3 Join 2 WYE
Low 1 2 3 4-5-6 Open 1 DELTA

 

Variable Torque Connection
Low-speed horsepower is one-fourth
of high-speed horsepower.*
