leroy somer air compressor wiring

I have recently bought this air compressor and there are wires attached to it but I want to make it 110v instead of 220. It only has the 3 orange wires coming from the motor. What wire does what?

My eyes must be going bad, but that motor data plate says 575/600V. From whom did you buy this compressor? OH.. it's 3 phase. I think you're out of luck with it being 600V 3PH, but maybe someone will reply with a solution. You may need to buy a new motor.

Welcome to the forums.

I enhanced the ID plate. It is indeed a 3 phase 600v motor.
Not going to work on lower voltage.

No.... it can only be run on 600 volts.
That is a special industrial motor.

I doubt you have 3 phase power so that is another issue.
