This sounds a bit dangerous for electrical connection?
The new motor will also be made by WEG. The FLA is 33.3, so maybe it is more efficient? The electrician that wired my first motor in is doing the second. He says 50 amp receptacle and 60 amp breaker, #8 wire. Is he coming in with a low ball price that may be dangerous? I'm thinking pay a few dollars extra for #6 wire, 60 amp receptacle, which is like $60 vs $10 for the NEMA 14-50 and a 70 or 80 amp breaker? I don't want to be voltage starved. A also may see this new system running 5-6 hours in a 10 hour split shift and 4 days per week at some point. I want to do it right, I want to do it heavy duty. If it costs me an extra $200, that's fine.
