Motor Test Equipment
Electro-Meters provides a collection of motor test equipment for a variety of motors, gas engines, and automotive equipment. Motor testing assesses the integrity of a motor through the use of computer-supported equipment that monitors the motor functions. The main objective of motor testing is to discover any hidden issues and prevent unnecessary problems. We carry models from the Magitrol line of motor test equipment, which includes equipment to test motors, measure torque, test brakes and clutches, and measure load-force-weight. If you need any assistance in finding the right motor test equipment for your needs, contact our team of experts at Electro-Meters today.
Magtrol offers three types of Dynamometers, each with a different braking system to absorb load: Hysteresis, Eddy-current and Powder. Magtrol’s dynamometers, electronics and software are used for testing all types of electric and pneumatic motors, gas engines and gearheads, as well as servo drives and inverters.
With over 50 dynamometers to choose from, and the availability of Customized Motor Test Systems (CMTS), virtually every motor testing requirement can be met.
Pure Hysteresis Brakes produce torque strictly through a magnetic air gap without the use of magnetic particles or friction components.
Like the Hysteresis Brake, the Magtrol Hysteresis Clutch develops torque strictly through a magnetic air-gap, ensuring an absolutely smooth transmission of torque from the drive unit to the driven element.
Highly reliable systems to measure and monitor load, force and weight, commonly used to provide safety, control and overload protection. Typical applications requiring Load-Force-
Weight Systems include cranes, ski lifts, harbor installations, oil drilling (on and off shore), hoists, winches and other heavy lifting equipment.
