SKF says its new Baker DX static motor analyzer models—which help users identify potential problems with motors and generators—will replace older-generation Baker D-series and ST series surge test analyzers, and perform analysis faster and more accurately than previous generation models.
The new models now include low-voltage inductance, impedance, phase angle and capacitance, coil, and DC step voltage tests in a smaller, lighter-weight portable unit. Like their predecessors, these analyzers also conduct winding resistance, megohm, DC HiPot, surge tests and DC bar-to-bar armature tests. All units come with a more intuitive, easy-to-navigate touch screen graphical user interface, and can be ordered in an array of configurations that suit the specific needs of a given customer. DX analyzers can perform motor tests from 4 to 40 kV (with an optional Power Pack), and are available in 4kV, 6kV, 6kV HO (high output), 12kV, and 12kV HO versions, along with a wide array of options and accessories to meet specific application needs. Such options include coil test, resistance-inductance-capacitance test, DC armature test, simple meg-ohm test, and either single- or three-lead configurations. www.bakerinst.com
