Reversing the direction of rotation of a motor is useful for many applications, for example to ensure the raising or lowering of an elevator or a lift, the opening or closing of a door or gate... Here is some practical information for changing the direction of rotation of your motor.

Reverse the direction of rotation of a three-phase motor
To reverse the direction of rotation of a three-phase motor, there is nothing very complicated. It all comes down to connections. It suffices to invert two of the three phases of the motor. Your motor will thus be able to switch from clockwise to counterclockwise and vice versa.

Reverse the direction of rotation of a single-phase motor
Reversing the direction of rotation of a single-phase motor is more delicate.

It is possible to go through a mechanical inversion, that is to say invert the position of the stator with respect to the rotor (operation which is not possible on all models).

The other solution is to reconfigure the motor connections, manipulation which will vary if it is a motor with 3 or 4 output wires.
