Our Test Floor

Responding to customer needs

Customers have demanded and will continue to demand, improvements in performance and quality of products.  This is seen in the extensive amount of testing our customers require of their motor and generator suppliers before equipment ships.  Ideal Electric has responded to that demand with a state-of-the-art test floor.  Our test floor allows for the complete testing of synchronous motors and generators at voltages from 480 V to 13.8 kV, at 60 Hz and 50 Hz.


Testing Capability

  • Performance, temperature and efficiency testing of synchronous motors and generators up to 30,000 kVA per IEEE 115 or IEC 60034
  • Performance, temperature and efficiency testing of induction motors up to 10,000 HP per IEEE 112 or IEC 60034
  • Test voltages from 480 V to 13.8 kV
  • 60 and 50 Hertz test frequencies
  • Horizontal and vertical test configurations
  • State-of-the-art Data Acquisition System
  • Bently-Nevada Adre Vibration Monitoring System
  • Complete control from the master control room overlooking the test floor area


Massive Test Beds Result in Very Low System Natural Frequencies

The test floor consists of two vertical test pits and two test bedplates for horizontal machines.  Each test bedplate has a weight in excess of one million pounds, insuring our capability to meet or exceed the stringent industry vibration criteria for massive, rigid mounting per API (0.02 ips maximum).  Housing and shaft probe (if supplied) vibration readings are consistently less than all industry requirements.
