  • Prazi Lathe motor question

    A friend picked up alittle Prazi lathe and the motor tag said 220V 50 HZ 1N. I will assume 50HZ is the european HZ as compared to the US 60 HZ. But is it a 3 phase motor?. We didn't know what the 1N stood for.

    How many wires?

    Any capacitor?

    Doubtful that little lathe would have 3 phase.

        I'm almost sure it's sng phase, if it has 2 hot wires & a ground it is, if 3 hots & a ground it's 3 phase.

          The Prazi lathe I had was single phase. 220V/230V/240V/250V doesn't matter much. All good European products are certified (CE Mark) to work at rated voltage +/- 10%.

          Plug it into single phase 230V/60 Hz and use it.

              Prazi lathe and other machine tools where hobby equipment imported from East Germany (in the good old days) many years ago. By all accounts it is decent equipment for its size.
              The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.

                1N means one phase (1) and Neutral (N).

                At 60 Hz it will run 20% too fast, which might be an issue if it's got a centrifugal switch for the start capacitor.

                  It will run 20% faster as we run 20% faster than our friends across the pond but I bet it will run fine. Most all motors now are marked with both.
