The DOL Starter is rated to 5.5kW but I am not sure how MrUnix can read the tally plate but thats some vision I tell you!

What the starter is rated at is irrelevant, and it should have an internal switch to set OL current based on motor used… that DC is either a Delta #50-852 (3hp three phase) or #50-853 (3hp single phase). I dug around a bit and found the data plate for the motor:

I guestimated the 15A… data plate shows a FLA of [email protected], or a little less @240V. 12 gauge SOOW would handle it, and 10 gauge would be way more than enough. If it is three phase, then it would be rated at even less.
