Default Re: Wiring a 110V two-phase motor?

The nomenclature on the motor is doubtful. Usually capacitor start/run motors are called 'single phase' because of the supply they run from. If the capacitor is external, the value is marked on the rating plate.

So does 2-phase mean it needed a 2-phase supply, or was it loose language meaningg a capacitive phase shift was needed?

Klaxon sold motors on the general market, they weren't all driving ratcheted diaphragms or sirens.
