Pole Drop Testing

Assess your rotating machines' integrity during outages

Pole Drop Testing is used to assess the integrity of the rotor in motors and generators, and detect any potential shorts or inconsistencies in the rotor winding.

By applying a single-phase AC voltage across one pole pair of the rotor while it's stationary and measuring the voltage drop across this pole pair, irregularities can be identified. A deviation from the expected value can suggest winding shorts, imbalances, or other defects that might compromise the condition of the motor or generator.

By periodically conducting Pole Drop Testing and recording the results within Atlas by Monitra™, potential faults can be identified and addressed, supporting the longevity and efficiency of the rotating machine.
