The portable meters are an effective tool to assist in the detection and correction of typical errors. They come with a step-by-step guide for setting up the various voltage and current measurement connections to simplify the troubleshooting process.
The meters also have pre-set measurement profiles to ensure relevant data is collected and evaluated over the major sections of the motor drive under test: from input to output, DC link to the motor itself. The integrated report generator helps the tester make an accurate evaluation of the condition of the drive system. 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 can also measure harmonics and leakage currents via the motor shaft.
