And was the motor just a basic three phase motor with start stop ?

I had 3phase DOL with 2 remote starts and 2 remote stops. There is no separate control voltage for the starts/stops so wire from mains.

The DOL was for circuit design and fault finding - they never got as far as putting a deliberate fault on mine as I found a fault with the transformer before hand and another with the circuit connection plugs / sockets they were using

There was also a disconnect / reconnect - check for dead before touching anything, don't forget to check direction and confirm earth on reconnect. Should be plenty of guidance on testing for dead on Vetassess site

The transformer was doing the supply for the motor circuit and wasn't part of the practical as such but there was a transformer in the prac that I did - Identify the primary / secondary windings and test to see if it was functional. I did my prac with Vic Uni.
