Electrical Discharge Detector Pen -hand-held
Service Detail from SKF/North America
Electrical discharges are a result of motor shaft voltages discharging to earth through the bearing, causing electrical erosion, lubricant degradation and ultimately bearing failure.
Electric motors are more vulnerable to suffer electrical erosion in bearings when controlled by a Variable Frequency Drive. When incorporated into a predictive maintenance program, the EDD Pen can help detect bearings more susceptible to failure, and significantly prevent unplanned machine downtime.
Unique remote solution allows operation at a distance from the motors. This helps protect the user from touching machinery in motion
