Like I said before I am new at this but, I thought the part that rotates is called the Armature and the connections are labeled A1,A2

Series wound: the stationary winding is called the Stator and it's connections are labeled S1,S2

Sepex: the stationary winding is called the Field and it's connections are labeled F1,F2

So A Series motor would have 4 connections labeled A1,A2,S1,S2
and A Sepex motor would have 4 connections labeled A1,A2,F1,F2

Are you sure he knows what he is talking about?
He mentions cage and stator. I though cage and stator were both names for the outside windings.

We are both speaking "English" but I call a car's bonnet a hood and it's boot, a trunk.....
