The power used by a working system varies with the application but must stay within safe limits. Power consumption outside of this range indicates a faulty motor or system.
The load or power consumption is measured at the input to the motor. When the calibration button is pressed, with the jumper in place, the MOTORSCOPE defines the safe range for the system. The motor must, at that time, run under normal working conditions. The power supply has to be correct and stable, this is checked continuously. The MOTORSCOPE keeps the motor running as long as the safe limits are not exceeded.
The MOTORSCOPE has an RS232 output for serial communication with our OPTIMIZER or a PC. The OPTIMIZER is used to improve settings, as an installation aid, and for more detailed fault indication. The OPTIMIZER can carry the data of the last 43 motor stops to be transferred to a PC.
