Posted by Jacek Laszkiewicz on Jun 18, 2023

Beaver Electrical is pleased to introduce our services utilizing the MCEMAX® Motor Circuit Evaluation test equipment. 

This reliable tool, designed by PdMA Corporation, facilitates detailed health assessments for a broad range of motors and generators. MCEMAX® is an integrated solution for managing and troubleshooting motors, accommodating both operating and non-operating conditions. 

It efficiently evaluates six critical fault zones - Power Quality, Power Circuit, Insulation, Stator, Rotor, and Air Gap, helping to ensure consistent performance of your equipment and aiding in the maintenance of your electrical assets. 

Key features of the MCEMAX® include: 

  • Monitoring distortion or harmonic content of incoming power quality against IEEE limits. 
  • Assessing cables and power circuits for high resistance connections. 
  • Evaluating ground insulation for deterioration. 
  • Scanning stator turn insulation for shorts or opens. 
  • Analyzing rotor cages for breaks and shorted iron. 
  • Examining the air gap for non-symmetry or eccentricity. 

MCEMAX® is a portable, battery-powered device, which makes it suitable for testing motors or starters in various locations. It offers a variable test voltage from 250 to 5000V, enabling Resistance To Ground (RTG), Polarization Index (PI), or Step Voltage testing. With six-channel simultaneous acquisition and torque and efficiency analysis, MCEMAX® serves as a valuable tool for equipment analysis. Additionally, it pairs with its proprietary MCEGold® software, providing data analysis and helping keep track of your motor’s health.
