Latest analysers simplify complex motor-drive troubleshooting

23 November 2018

Fluke has introduced two new motor drive analysers to simplify complex motor-drive troubleshooting.

The portable Fluke MDA-510 and MDA-550 motor-drive analysers are said to save time and eliminate the hassle of setting up complex measurements, while simplifying the troubleshooting process for variable frequency drives. Guided graphical test set-ups show where to make connections and a built-in report generator provides records of actions taken. 

The user selects a test and the step-by-step guided measurements show where to make voltage and current connections, while the preset measurement profiles ensure the capture of all the data needed for each critical motor-drive section – from the input to the output, the DC bus, and the motor itself. From basic to advanced measurements, the MDA-500 Series provides the solutions, and with a built-in report generator as-found, and as-left reports can quickly and easily be generated with confidence.

The MDA-510 and MDA-550 can help safely locate and troubleshoot typical problems on inverter type motor-drive systems. They can:

  • Measure key motor-drive parameters including voltage, current, DC Bus voltage level and AC ripple, voltage and current unbalance and harmonics (MDA-550), voltage modulation, and motor shaft voltage discharges (MDA-550).
  • Perform extended harmonics measurements to identify the effects of low and high order harmonics on the electrical power system.
  • Conduct guided measurements for motor-drive input, DC bus, drive output, motor input and shaft measurements (MDA-550) with graphical step-by-step voltage and current connection diagrams.
  • Use simplified measurement setup with preset measurement profiles to automatically trigger data collection based on the chosen test procedure.
  • Create reports quickly and easily that are perfect for documenting troubleshooting and collaborative work with others.
  • Measure additional electrical parameters with the full 500MHz oscilloscope, meter and recording capability for a complete range of electrical and electronic measurements on industrial systems.
