  • What Can You Test with a Motor Tester?

    A motor tester is a simple unit that can test a variety of motor capabilities. These testers are often used in conjunction with engine dynamometers, and some of the testers are even combined within the components of an engine dyno machine. Motor testers are used by motor manufacturers to ensure the safety of the motor and to identify any potential problems with the unit. Each motor is tested by the manufacturer before it is released for public retail to ensure the highest level of safety and quality. Motor testers can...

  • Servo Hydraulic Test Lab Audits

    Thursday, August 21, 2014 The test labs that the Wineman Technology Sales Engineers encounter on a daily basis vary as much as the number of products being tested in today’s marketplace. We are increasingly finding that throughout the years that each lab has grown, processes have changed and test stands have been added, but rarely do lab managers have the time to take a step back and take a fresh look at the “big picture” of how his or her lab and processes are running as a whole. Figure...

  • SAKOR Tech Wins SCIP Grant to Measure Airflow in Running Vehicle

    SAKOR Technologies, Inc., a leader in the implementation of instrumentation products for dynamometer testing, has won a competitive Small Company Innovation Program (SCIP) grant awarded by the Michigan Corporate Relations Network (MCRN), and will use the grant for research necessary to develop a thermal transient anemometer (TTA), a device used to measure airflow moving through a running vehicle. The research will be conducted in collaboration with Michigan State University’s Turbulent Shear Flows Laboratory. The TTA is engineered to enhance the ability to assess heat rejection, a major design consideration...

Industry Information

Motor Tester

Motor testers measure the performance of motors to ensure that they are efficient and safe. The equipment is automatic, performing a sequence of steps to determine whether the demonstrated capabilities of the motor are acceptable. The majority of motor testers are used with electric motors.

Motor testers are used to determine if repairs are necessary and to perform maintenance and troubleshooting in order to minimize downtime and avoid repair costs. A routine test can help maintain the motor's efficiency so that the lifespan of the equipment will be extended. Motor testers have a variety of operating procedures to perform electric motor impulse testing, motor rotation testing, wound rotor motor testing, electric motor insulation resistance testing and more. This equipment can operate offline without a power supply or online with applied power and a running motor. Depending on the application, motor testers may be portable, standalone or installed in the equipment being tested. Because of the widespread usage of both gas and electric motors, motor testers are very important to many industries. Production and manufacturing companies rely on functioning and efficient motors for every process that requires power or motion. These machines may also be used for vehicles.

Motor testers are available in a range of styles, sizes, methods and abilities. Top quality testers perform more complicated analyses, storing and exporting data and graphing it on digital displays. Generally, motor testers work by using voltage probes and current probes attached to input wires of the motor to connect internal voltmeters, ammeters and ohmmeters to the system (only for electrical motors). Some use a non-contact speed sensor to measure the motor shaft speed and determine the number of rotations per minute. Other options and parameters include a load point test where the motor is tested while under a full load, no load or a locked rotor. Direction, torque, current, voltage, power, efficiency and cut-out speed may be determined by motor tester equipment because of the range of available options that meet the variety of needs. To take torque measurements, motor testers may use a trunnion mounting of the loading device where the brake is mounted so that its enclosure is able to rotate freely around the shaft. An electronic scale takes the measurements. Transducers coupled with the shaft between the motor and the brake is very fast and accurate with less than 0.1% inaccuracy. For motor power, testers are able to handle speeds from less than one horsepower to several hundred.
