Ok, so I recently purchased a 10hp RPC panel. It was supposed to arrive with instructions, but there are nothing but a couple labels. I have yet to purchase and idler motor, but was hoping someone could give me some info on connecting everything properly.
Right now there are three terminals labeled "To idler motor". Seems self explanatory, but what happens with a 6 or 9 lead motor? I know I need a 2 or 4 pole motor, but I am not sure what that means. Also, the terminals labeled C, A, B I assume are the output 3ph which will power my tools. What's the best way to split the output between 3 or 4 machines? Another subpanel? Thanks.
P.S. I didn't know where a topic like this should be posted, so I will understand if it gets moved.
