Can we lower the capacitance value to allow a reversible motor to run at continuous duty?

Yes, but only on the World K and V Series (3 wire reversible motors).

Advantages: Runs cooler, allowing for continuous duty.

Disadvantages: Less starting and rated torque.  May affect reverse-on-the-fly capability.  Motor loses UL certification.
