Certainly, predictive maintenance has become more and more important within all manufacturing sectors. To simplify, the purpose of PdM techniques is to determine a failure before the failure even occurs. This could ultimately save you thousands of dollars in unplanned downtime! The MCEMax will do just that! This unit will test AC, DC, wound rotor, and synchronous motor issues, as well as drive and load issues.

There are several things that can shorten the life of your motor such as thermal stress, mechanical stress, electrical stress, and environmental stress. Because of this, you need to come up with a game plan and establish a criticality ranking of all your motors, review their history, then develop and execute a plan to schedule testing. Having the assurance that this type of testing can essentially test for everything is an amazing feeling for any maintenance manager!

What can it test?

Power Circuit:

  • High Resistance Connections
  • Defective PF Correction Compacitors
  • Faulty Contact Surfaces
  • Flawed Cabling


  • Excess Heat
  • Brittleness
  • Moisture / Contamination
  • Abrasion


  • Turn-Turn Faults
  • Phase-Phase Faults
  • Faulty Connections with the Motor
  • Core Loss


  • Cracked / Broken
  • Porosity
  • Defective Rotor Iron
  • Lamination Damage

Air Gap

  • Warped or Broken Rotor
  • Cocked End Bells
  • Misalignment
  • Soft Feet

In addition to the above, after the testing is complete, you can have access to generated reports detailing the condition of your equipment and giving you an inside look that you haven’t seen prior. Therefore, MCEMax testing should be apart of everyone’s facility. Reducing failures, increasing motor life, reducing maintenance costs, safe testing, and most importantly Increasing Overall Plant Reliability!
