Measuring Motor Shaft Voltage Discharges
Voltage pulses from a variable speed drive can couple from a motor’s stator to its rotor, causing a voltage to appear on the rotor shaft. When this rotor shaft voltage exceeds the insulating capacity of the bearing grease, voltage arcs or electrical discharge machining can occur, causing pitting and fluting of the motor bearing race, damage that can cause a motor to fail prematurely.   Read more here…

 

The Future of Power Factor Correction has Arrived
Traditional Power Factor Correction (PFC) is technology that utilises AC capacitors switched into circuit in defined steps to offset inductive loads. This helps to improve the power factor and power quality by increasing the efficiency of the supply, but times are changing.    Read more here…
