Current Signature Analysis

Tracking your motor’s performance while analyzing trends over time allows you to schedule preventative maintenance; therefore reducing the incidence of motor failure.

Bradleys’ offers Motor Current Signature Analysis (MCSA), a detection and diagnostic method used to analyze faults in electrical motors. This technology enables the testing of operating equipment to identify rotor bar and high resistance joint problems.

As a preventative maintenance tool, MCSA can be used to perform a one-time test or periodic testing to track and trend motor performance. MCSA allows for remote, non-intrusive, testing of the equipment being monitored. The test analyzes the current waveform using complex mathematics.
