Iris Power Engineering has developed a new instrument called the CSMeter that is designed to reliably detect broken rotor bars in squirrel cage induction motors across a wide range of applications, including coal crushers/mill motors, compressors and other applications involving mechanical drives. Advanced electronic and software technology enables the CSMeter to be less than half the price of other instruments offering similar diagnostics. It uses proprietary motor current signature analysis algorithms to guard against false indications. The hand-held meter provides on-the-spot diagnosis right at the motor and needs no cumbersome accessories.
