Motor Current Signature Analysis Service

MCSA is a non-intrusive, on-line test technique, used to assess the rotor condition of motors by analysing the frequency content of the current.
 
MCSA can be used in conjunction with on-line partial discharge (OLPD) testing; for the preventative maintenance and diagnosis of problems in induction motors. Through periodic testing it is possible to track and trend a machines mechanical performance, pre‑empting faults and unplanned outages.

Features and Benefits

  • Non-intrusive testing by analysing the frequency content of the 50/60 Hz current wave form through the motor
  • Can provide savings by preventing in service failure of the motor
  • Detects electrical problems with the rotor
  • Complements OLPD testing
 

What Can MCSA Detect

  • Broken Rotor Bars
  • Dynamic Eccentricity
  • Static Eccentricity
