Fluke Academy Motors & Drives Seminar in February

fluke motor and drives seminarsThe content of this seminar is aimed at helping maintenance technicians (electromechanical technicians, electricians) become more effective at troubleshooting motors and motor drives, and ultimately helping reduce downtime and save on costly repair bills.

At the completion of the training the technician should be able to make those critical decisions in order to quickly isolate a fault down to a component level, facilitating a quick and cost effective repair. He will also be able to diagnose if a problem is simply a component failure, installation problem or potentially an application performance issue.

The seminar starts with the basic theory of operation of key elements within a motor control system, a safety overview, as well as an overview of the typical fault conditions in a motor system. The seminar covers the key measurements and troubleshooting techniques divided in three segments by measurement points: the Drive Input, the Drive and Drive Output and the Motor and Drive Train . For each of these fault conditions the seminar goes into details of the appropriate measurement theory, measurement techniques and basics of interpreting the results as well as what the overall benefits of these techniques are. We conclude each segment with relevant Case Studies, Discussions, Quizzes and Hands-on exercises with fundamental tools that will contribute to the learning experience.
