Electrical, insulation and thermal measurements for motors and drives

  Electrical, insulation resistance and thermal measurement are three tests that can troubleshoot motors, drives and associated electrical panels, and prolong their operational lifetime. Most facilities must obtain maximum life out of their motors because they are expensive to replace, in terms of both money and labour. Used together, thermal imagers can detect potential problems […]

How to keep VFDs and motors running

  Applied to blowers and pumps, VFDs offer energy savings and, in mechanical applications, allow fine adjustments which are impossible with other methods. Yet they are not simple plug-in-and-forget devices. Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are full of electronics and are susceptible to many problems, from incoming power disturbances to environmental hazards and incorrect use – […]

Electrical, insulation and thermal measurements for motors and drives

  Electrical, insulation resistance and thermal measurement are three tests which can troubleshoot motors, drives and associated electrical panels and prolong their operational lifetime. Used together, thermal imagers can detect potential problems and insulation resistance, while electrical tests can determine the cause. Handheld thermal imagers can collect heat signatures from a range of motors, from […]

Transportable multi-product calibrator

  The Comtest Group has introduced the Fluke 5522A multi-product calibrator which is specifically designed to improve the capabilities of calibration laboratories across all industries. The calibrator, based on Fluke’s top-selling 5520A series calibrator, aims to provide daily service both inside and outside of the calibration lab because it is durable enough to be transported […]
