Well it’s 50-50 reasoning (and maybe flawed at that!)

Part of it is that I don’t like a big grey box mounted on the outside of the machine, and the other part is the current wiring has 2 or 3 wires that have come loose and I cant figure out where they go.

I have contacted the manufacturer of the thermal overload and controller, but their tech department has not gotten back to me (for 4 weeks now), and I cannot find a wiring diagram online for the specific model of controller&overload to figure out what wire goes where to the 12v on/off switches.They have changed/upgraded their controllers. It is parts, but their spec sheets don’t give me enough info to know the specifics of “put the wire from the ON switch to terminal A and the wire form the OFF switch to terminal B, type of info. I need it dumbed down that far since I have never really worked on a 3 phase motor.

I have the room to put the Static Phase Converter inside the cabinet, but there wouldn’t be enough room for both boxes.
