SCARBOROUGH, ON — Adwell International Ltd. has come up with a second-generation stator core fault-detection unit, the MCT 2 motor core tester. It allows users to quickly and accurately test for stator lamination faults in motors and generators. Based on the original technique that England-based Central Electricity Research Laboratories developed in the 1970s, the unit does a nondestructive test for both fault detection and quality analysis of repairs. “Stator cores are normally tested by heating them with high levels of flux and checking for hot spots,” said Brad McNarma, director of sales and marketing. “This is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process that could damage the stator core.” Among its benefits, the unit runs on low power and is portable, thus allowing onsite testing.
