Baker AWA IV is the only high-voltage test instrument that a user can program to perform a specific set of insulation tests prior to being in the field, and then use as programmed in the field. The AWA-IV is also used to assure quality of motor rebuilds or new production motors before they are placed into service.
The Baker AWA-IV is a simple-to-use test instrument with an intuitive, touch-screen user interface. It delivers accurate, repeatable results regardless of the skill level of a given operator. It easily detects problems that low-voltage testers cannot find by performing a comprehensive set of both high- and low-voltage tests. Results are presented in simple, easy-to-understand graphs and reports that give motor maintenance professionals the information they need to minimize costs and unplanned downtime. The ability to apply identical tests to a given motor over a long period allows trends to be analysed, revealing the degradation of insulation over the motor’s lifetime. This allows maintenance professionals to predict when a motor may fail, and plan its replacement accordingly.
