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.
What Can MCSA Detect?
- Broken Rotor Bars
- Dynamic Eccentricity
- Static Eccentricity
