- Wire motor for 120V or 240V?
The 2hp dual-capacitor motor on my bandsaw can be wired for either 220V (draws up to 10 amps) or 110V (draws up to 20 amps). I need to install a new circuit whichever I decide (30 amp circuit for the 110V configuration). Am I correct in assuming the performance of the motor, such as amount of torque in generates, would be the same whichever way I wire it? Is the theoretical longevity of the motor also the same?
