    Foir all porpoises your best bet is to look at the plate on the motor which should tell you the voltage and other characteristics.

    Hi, the motor´s plate show me both choices, but it doesn´t give me any information related with the connection. Moreover, because it is a dual voltage it shows 2 connectios (delta and star) in low voltage and other two in high voltage...
    The plate shows:
    Star connection (230V) - Low start
    Delta conecction (230V)- Low run
    Star connection (460V) - High start
    Delta conecction (460V)- High run
