Production Line Test Automation

Production Line Test Automation

Electrom’s Production Line Test Automation (PLTA) solutions come in a range of systems for every budget.  Automate your QA testing program with a single instrument that seamlessly integrates with your production line. Options such as bar code scanning, external controls, and automatic uploading of test results make the iTIG the most cost-effective solution for developers, manufactures, and OEMs.

Manufacturers of electric motors, generators, alternators, and coils can rely on the iTIG for quality assurance and new technology development on the production floor or in the R&D lab.

The iTIG is easy to use and features over 20 high- and low-voltage tests and measurements.  Options for automation, reporting, data import and export, and other advanced systems are flexible.

Seamless Integration from a Single Instrument

Other test automation systems require interfacing multiple independent units so implementation can be costly. With Electrom’s PLTA solution, a single instrument can be set up at a stationary test station or carried around the production floor. Having the choice of a dedicated test station’s stability or mobile versatility whenever you need it makes the iTIG the cost-effective choice for test automation implementation.

  • Perform all tests on various types of coils, stators, assembled motors, generators, single phase or 3-phase equipment.
  • Use on single product or multi product production lines
  • Manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic mode.
  • Enter test information manually, using a bar code scanner, or upload by computer to the tester via the instrument’s serial port interface.
  • Operator or PLC/PC test start.
  • Test results can be uploaded to a server automatically in real-time and at the conclusion of each test set.  Data can also be stored in the tester and uploaded later or transferred to a Flash Drive.

Available Tests

  • 4-wire µΩ winding resistance measurements
  • Inductance and Impedance measurements
  • Various Insulation Resistance (Megohm) tests
  • DC Hipot, Step Voltage and Ramp tests
  • High Frequency Surge comparison tests with up to 50 Hz surge pulse repetition rate find more turn-to-turn insulation weaknesses than testers with lower rates such as the common 1-5Hz rates
  • Surge tests of assembled motors without turning the rotor
  • Surge test comparisons to master coils or master stators where each phase in the motor is compared to the equivalent phase in the master stator
