Our Test Floor
Meeting Customer Needs
Customers have demanded and will continue to demand improvements in both product performance and quality. Customers now require extensive testing conducted by their manufacturers before equipment even ships. Ideal Electric meets this challenge with our innovative test floor. Our Ohio Works allows us to precisely and accurately test synchronous motors and generators at voltages from 480 V to 13.8 kV, at 60 Hz and 50 Hz.
- 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
High Quality Testing Facility
The Ohio Works test floor consists of two vertical test pits and two test bedplates for horizontal machines. Each test bedplate has a weight exceeding one million pounds, insuring our capability to meet and exceed the stringent industry vibration criteria for massive, rigid mounting per API (0.02 ips maximum). Other test floors use housing and shaft probe vibration readings which consistently fail to meet the stringency of industrial requirements. Our Ideal capabilities make our test floor unique, yielding precise and timely results as no one else can.
