Question about Heating & Cooling
This is a tri-phased motor in which the coils are joined in a stellar configuration: one end of the coils is joined together internally while the other 3 ends are set externally as the power connectors.
Because this motor is a special one, capable of functioning on different voltages the coils were designed with intermediary outputs so basically you have 3 sets of the 3 phased outputs, corresponding to the 3 available voltages.
You must identify the wires for each pair. You will do that by measuring the resistance of the coils between 2 of the wires. You will need a very sensible ohmmeter for that. Once you have determined the 3 pairs just connect the appropriate pair to your tri-phazed mains source.

This is probably being done in pairs. Say wires 1 and 2 3 and 4 5and 6 would make up your 3 hot wires. Then 789 would be tied together.
This is an example only! I dont know what the diagram shows on the motor.Each combination would depend on the voltage you have available.208 230 460 also the amps.
460 volts would draw the least amount of amps.
