I have a 230 volt cabinet saw that seems woefully underpowered. I think the motor is smaller than the 3 hp motor which is supposed to be installed at the factory. What is the best way tio determine the output of my motor?
I’m familiar with the amps x volts divided by 746 formula and know that you don’t get 100% efficiency out of any mechanical process, but is their any way to measure the output with a multimeter?
The name plate does not list HP or amps, but it does say KW 2.2. The motor is a Leroy Somer. I’m calling their St Louis office as soon as I can get the time. Meanwhile any ideas or familiarity with this brand of motor?
