How to wire an electrical fan motor

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to wire up this inline fan however I am not sure how to wire it up. The electricity I intend to wire it up to is 120v and single phase. Thanks!

Not sure what they exactly mean by "LOW VOLT" and "HIGH VOLT", but I assume they mean 115V and 208V-230V written on lower label.

Just wire as drawn on LOW VOLT diagram.

P1 to one side of 120V (hot or neutral)
Red, P2, Orange tied together and insulate (a wire nut will do)
Black, White, Yellow tied together and connect to the other side of 120V (hot or neutral).

Where you connect neutral and hot would not matter.

Low volt would be what you want for 120 volts.
connect exactly like the drawing on the motor.
red, P2 and orange connected together and to nothing else.
Black power wire connected to black, white and yellow.
White power wire connected to P1

If the motor rotates the wrong way swap the red and black leads to reverse the rotation.
