DC Motor Tests

This page is an overview of iTIG DC motor tests. For details about specific tests, including types of DC motor tests and iTIG test measurement techniques used during DC motor tests, see the method descriptions for each test and measurement.

Which DC motor tests are available?

DC motor testing is done with the same instrument used for AC motor tests. The tests used are also the same. Since multiple coils and windings are tested, the procedures for doing the tests are different.

Multi-coil tests are available. This semi-automatic process makes testing multiple coils and DC armatures fast and easy. Options for presentation of winding resistance and surge test data include bar graphs.
