FLUKE MDA-550 Motor Drive Analyser - Reducing Motor Drive Troubleshooting Complexity

Application shot of Fluke MDA-550, by Acutest

The Fluke MDA-550 Motor Drive Analyser makes troubleshooting and measuring easier by automating drive measurements and guiding users through test setups... well as reducing the number of tools needed by combining several functions into one instrument.

Synopsis: "You can have an oscilloscope where you can visualise the waveform and you can have a bearing discharge analyser where you can count the number of discharges, but this instrument can do both things."

Motor drives. They're everywhere and essential to adapting the speed of a motor to the needs of an application. Also called variable speed drives (VSD), variable frequency drives (VFD) and adjustable speed drives (ASD), motor drives are an important behind-the-scenes component in fans, pumps, compressors and other motor-driven equipment.

A global maker of commercial refrigeration and heating systems, hydraulics and motor drives, one of the largest industrial companies/employers in Denmark has recently partnered with Fluke to test the new Fluke MDA-550 Motor Drive Analyser.
