Integrated Testing Capabilities
The AWA 2.2 integrates a wide range of electrical tests with the hallmark quality of a Baker. This instrument supports all
major electric tests in a single field portable unit including surge, polarization index, DC HiPot, megohm and winding
resistance. This instrument complies to IEEE recommendations.
With the AWA 2.2, Baker Instrument Company, an SKF Group Company, continues to pioneer new breakthroughs that demonstrate our ongoing commitment to quality, reliability, and competitive advantage. The AWA 2.2 is the result of over 40 years of designing and building insulation test instruments. It is the only tester available today that provides automatic pre-programmed tests and manual controlled tests in the same instrument.
The Power of Automation
The AWA 2.2 has been designed around PC104 technology that allows the instrument to work efficiently without fans to cool the processor. This computer performs all requested tests, stores the results, and continuously monitors voltage levels while testing. If the computer detects a weakness in the insulation, the test is interrupted, the operator is alerted, and all test parameters at the time of the interruption are reported. The AWA 2.2 performs this operation in microseconds with a higher degree of precision and safety than can be achieved through manual testing.
Automatic or Manual
The AWA 2.2 gives you the option of automatic or manual testing. In manual mode, the system allows operator control over tests, voltage levels and data collection.
The AWA 2.2 is the only high voltage tester that can be preprogrammed in the office and implemented in the field. Prebuild
work orders define which motors to test, the order of execution, and parameters for each test including voltages, duration and pass-fail limits. Operators can then conduct tests in the field simply by connecting to the pre-programmed motor, insuring a higher degree of reliability in testing procedures. This allows repeatable maintenance testing, which is vital to a successful PM program.
Advanced Data Collection
When testing is complete, results can be saved as part of each motor’s permanent test record. This kind of documentation is critical to a successful reliability program. With the AWA 2.2, test results are collected, stored, recalled and managed using standard MS AccessÒ relational database format. Reports can be generated for trending, insurance records, or guarantee and warranty requirements for customers through the AWA software or MS WordÒ file formats. This open
database structure make it easy to transfer information to maintenance management software or other database tools.
