What are Power Plugs with Harnesses For?
Motor power plugs with harnesses are necessary when you want to test a motor outside of its air handler/furnace environment. Most ECM motors have special power input plugs, so bench testing can be downright challenging without access to these plugs. The Universal Zebra System provides a wide variety of these special connectors, with more to come.
