Default Dayton Fan and Motor Co unique motor

I picked up this little guy at the Pioneer Engineers reunion in Rushville IN this weekend. It does not list amperage or HP. It comes up to speed somewhat slowly but hums along nicely. Now for the “unique “ part, it does not appear to have any starting components. Instead of a capacitor or switch, there is what appears to be a transformer or coil of sorts in the housing above the motor. The motor and coil each have three leads. Any idea what type of motor this is? Unfortunately one of the feet is broken off.

That looks to me like it might be a reactor based equivalent to a Permanent Split Capacitor motor. Would require more investigation to confirm. I have an early Century table fan that works this way.

Too bad about the UPS feet...
