    If the motor is truly 5HP then it will already be 240V, but I'm not sure
    when compressor makers started inflating the numbers. The contactor
    device is the pressure switch which cycles the motor on when the
    pressure drops and off when it reaches a preset limit.

    I have an air compressor looks to be dated 1963 , built by wayne pum
    co. and has a single phase 5HP. GE triclad capacitor motor model numbe
    5KC215AG201B that I would like to hook up to a 230 v panel ,but I hav
    no idea of the proper wiring. Can anyone supply me with a wirin
    diagram. This compressor also came with a box that appears to be som
    sort of contactor and is wired to the regulator. I believe that it wa
    originaly wired as 110 v. I can supply photos if nessassary . HELP!
