Motor drive analysers enable fast error detection

Now available at Conrad Electronic are Fluke’s new MDA-510 and MDA-550 motor drive analysers. They offer accurate and fast error analysis on complex single and three phase variable speed drives, and provide the user with an effective tool to detect and correct typical errors.

A step-by-step guide for setting up the various voltage and current measurement connections simplifies the troubleshooting process, saves time and provides fast and reliable results.

Pre-set measurement profiles ensure that relevant data is collected and evaluated across all major sections of the motor drive under test: from input to output, DC link to the motor itself. This approach provides solutions for both basic and complex measurement tasks.

The built-in report generator enables an objective evaluation of the condition of the drive system before and after troubleshooting.

With their consistent user-oriented design, the MDA-510 and MDA-550 motor drive analysers record all significant parameters, including voltage and current, voltage of the DC link, ripple voltages, voltage and current waveform asymmetries.

The MDA-550 also enables measurement of harmonics and leakage currents via the motor shaft. This reveals possible effects on the power supply systems.

“The fast, automated measurement routine with pre-set profiles is of vital importance in our analyser system,” says Stefan Kohler at Fluke Germany, explaining the advantages of the MDA-500 series. “With an additional oscilloscope and multimeter, further functional parameters in motor drives can be recorded and documented.”

“With the MDA-500 series from our top manufacturer Fluke, we offer professional users a reliable and comfortable measurement methodology without manual configuration for uninterrupted detection, correction and documentation of typical error sources in complex industrial motor drives,” explains Susanne Storch, Product Manager at Conrad Electronic.
