    3 Phase Motor schematic etiquette

    Nicholas Farrand

      I'm curious why one would choose to have 3 wires (or 4 with ground) going into a motor symbol instead of showing what's actually happening with the motor?

       

      Example: My specific 3 phase motor, Teco-Westinghouse XP0202, has a 12 wire configuration in which depending on your input voltage different wires are tied together with each phase. I can't represent that with the generic symbol. I feel like I'm cheating whoever will be wiring/diagnosing the system.

       

      Is that too much detail for the schematic?
