The operation of the reversing motor in the reverse
position is shown in table 6-8. After the reverse push
button is pressed (solid to dotted position):

reclose and start the motor when voltage is restored
unless either the forward or reverse push button is
pressed. The circuit arrangement of the normally
closed contacts F5 and R5 provides an electrical
interlock that prevents the energizing of both coils at the
In most applications, the direction in which a dc
motor turns is reversed by reversing the connections of
the armature with respect to the field. The reversal of
connections can be done in the motor controller by
adding two electrically and mechanically interlocked

master switches, and you can get the desired motor
rotation by pressing the proper switch.
