Electric Motor + Generator Test Service

Special types of electrical test equipment are necessary to properly test most varieties of electric motors and generators. Substantially different test and measurement methods are used for online monitoring vs. off-line situations.  EDE is able to provide for both scenarios with the EDE technology portfolio. Recent jobs in 2012 included 108 AC motors at a large industrial facility and acceptance testing 2000 HP DC motor. Jobs in 2013 included acceptance testing of 6MW generator. Jobs in  2014 included Aviation industry, and Jobs in 2015 have included Public Utility works.
