As an integral part in its aim to educate and support technicians in best practice for maintenance and troubleshooting across a wide range of industrial processes, Fluke has developed a wealth of background information relating to preventive maintenance and troubleshooting motors and drives which can be found at https://www.fluke.com/en-gb/learn/best-practices/motors-and-drives
The user is immediately offered the opportunity to contact and speak to a Fluke motor drive specialist for advice on optimum approaches and the ideal tools.
Ten illustrated pages, Introduction to motors and drives, provide information about the basics of motors and drives and the sort of Fluke tools that are ideal for taking measurements, such as thermal imagers, motor drive and power quality analysers, and vibration testers and shaft alignment tools.
Four detailed Customer stories describe in detail the problems faced by industrial users and how they solved them using Fluke products including motor drive and power quality analysers.
Seven detailed Checklists and guides provide information on best practice approach to preventive maintenance to keep a plant up and running and to minimise downtime.
The Troubleshooting motors and drives page also includes two short videos, one a case study showing the application of a Fluke 438-II Power Quality and Motor Analyser to regularly monitor motors and thus minimise downtime, and the other showing how intuitive Fluke MDA-510 and MDA-550 Motor Drive Analysers are to use, even if on an irregular basis.
