Webinar Details

When the highest reliability is demanded of your motors, high voltage testing is not just an option – it’s a necessity. Latent issues or existing insulation faults will be missed if you restrict your testing to line voltage and below. This webinar will focus on the theory and application of electric motor insulation testing techniques.

Learning Takeaways

  1. The 5 most critical tests you should be performing on your motors.
  2. How high voltage provides the best information about the reliability of your motors and cables.
  3. Analysis techniques that provide the most information from your test data.
  4. How to find the most common insulation failure modes which are invisible to low voltage testing.
