Identify Possible Motor Abuse or Misapplication
It is now possible to track motors through the stray flux to confirm potential process problems. If an electric motor is designed to be started and stopped once a day and it is actually being started 10, 20 or even 100 times a day, there is going to be a maintenance problem in the future. With the SST-50 Start/Stop/Timer identify potential process abuse before problems develop.
More Accurately Schedule Maintenance
Schedule maintenance according to length of run time instead of on a monthly, quarterly, or even annual basis. Prioritize motors by duty cycle during outage times to better share work requirements. For example: did that motor really run 200 hours or 2,000 hours?
Monitor energy usage for projects by run time hours. Examples include irrigation pumps, just how long did that pump run?
The SST-50 is a rechargeable battery enclosed unit that magnetically attaches to the outside of the motor case and counts each start. It records run time in 6 minute intervals (1/10 of an hour). The display gives the maintenance professional knowledge on duty cycle that motors are operating within.
