TAMPA, FL-According to the PdMA Corporation, many times when a trouble call is placed for the reliability group to troubleshoot a motor related problem, the question arises: "How was the motor operating before this concern developed?" Sure you can look at the last test data obtained or all of the dynamic motor diagnostic data. You may even observe the latest In-Rush/Start-Up test that you obtained when the motor was started. This is a good, analytical process to follow and may yield an initial idea for the cause of the anomaly.
