The MOTOR GENIE® is a handheld motor tester that uses patented technology to troubleshoot low-voltage AC induction motors rated less than 1000V. It is capable of finding winding faults, including coil-to-coil, turn-to-turn and grounded windings. It also measures impedance, phase angle, current/frequency response, phase to phase resistance and insulation-to-ground resistance.
With its advanced capabilities, the MOTOR GENIE® outperforms other traditional tools such as the Megohmmeter, RCL meter and other resistance meters, which only provide measurements. The MOTOR GENIE® goes beyond measurement taking abilities and analyzes the condition of the motor. These conditions are sent to the associated mobile app on the user’s phone or tablet.
Megohm insulation testing will only detect faults to ground. The majority of faults will go undetected using this method alone.Surge testing requires the application of high voltages and currents, which can be destructive and actually generate faults. This aspect combined with the size of surge testing equipment makes it inappropriate for troubleshooting and predictive maintenance testing.
In addition, resistance and inductance-only (RLC) test methods don’t provide enough information for reliable fault detection and troubleshooting.
The MOTOR GENIE® is your best, most economical choice for fault detection and troubleshooting.
