How to Connect a Run Capacitor to a AC 4-Wire-Reversible PSC Gearmotor or Motor

In this How-To video, we show you how to wire and connect one of our AC single-phase, 4-wire-reversible, permanent split capacitor (fixed speed) gearmotors with its run capacitor and a power cord. PSC gearmotors or motors require a run capacitor to be connected to the winding at all times. To enclose the capacitor or to make the AC power cord connections, an optional terminal box kit is a convenient add-on solution. Adding a terminal box also upgrades the Ingress Protection rating of these AC gearmotors from IP-20 to IP-44.
