New automated drive analyser

First Quarter 2020 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

Fluke’s MDA-500 Series is designed to help users easily test and troubleshoot typical problems on three-phase and single-phase inverter type motor-drive systems. The on-screen information, and step-by-step setup guidance allow easy configuration of the analyser, delivering the drive measurements needed to make better, faster maintenance decisions. From power input to the installed motor, the MDA-500 provides the measurement capability for the fastest motor-drive troubleshooting.

The units save time and eliminate the hassle of setting up complex measurements, while simplifying the troubleshooting process. Users simply select a test and the step-by-step guided measurements show where to make voltage and current connections, while the preset measurement profiles ensure the capture of all the data needed for each critical motor-drive section – from the input to the output, the DC bus, and the motor itself. From basic to advanced measurements, the MDA-500 Series has it all covered, and with a built-in report generator, users can quickly and easily generate ‘as-found’, and ‘as-left’ reports with confidence.

The MDA-510 and MDA-550 are ideal portable motor-drive analysis test tools, to safely locate and troubleshoot typical problems on inverter type motor-drive systems. They can measure key motor-drive parameters, perform extended harmonics measurements, conduct guided measurements for motor-drive input and create reports quickly and easily.

The MDA-500 Series uses guided test measurements for analysis of drive input voltage and current unbalance, extended harmonic measurements, DC bus and drive output.
