Static motor analysers

The new Baker DX series of static motor analysis equipment from SKF replaces older-generation Baker D-series and ST series surge test analysers. The DX is ideal as an entry level instrument for performing motor and generator analysis in areas such as industrial motor test/maintenance, motor servicing and OEM manufacturing.

The SKF Static Motor Analyser, Baker DX offers wide capabilities to analyse all insulation and motor circuits in AC and DC motors, gen¬erators and coils.

The lightweight, portable instruments can carry out low-voltage inductance, impedance, phase angle and capacitance, coil, DC step voltage, winding resistance, Megohm, DC Hipot, surge and DC bar-to-bar armature tests.

They feature an easy-to-use touch screen graphical user interface, are offered with a range of configuration options and accessories and can include the test functions required by the user. Options include coil test, resistance-inductance-capacitance test, DC armature test, simple meg-ohm test and either single- or three-lead configurations.

The low voltage testing capability allows for a more complete testing solution for predictive maintenance or quality management. The low voltage tests can supply up to 600 mA and frequencies from 50 to 4 000 Hz. The Baker DX also offers a modular design that allows for configuration with only the test capabilities needed for the specific application. For example, it can be only a high voltage or a low volt¬age tester or used as a unit that has both high voltage and low voltage testing.

The optional desktop software package - ‘Surveyor DX’ enables data from the tester to be moved to a PC via a USB stick. The software will allow storage of data and report generation.
