Motor Reliability and Maintenance Programs Made Easy
If you are like many of our customers, minimizing unplanned downtime through maintenance programs and motor reliability programs is a top priority. These programs are never easy, but we can help you make them easier.
Electrom has a state-of-the-art family of portable offline motor testers for large and small motors and generators. Automated testing with the push of a button makes motor testing easy and available for personnel who are not experts, and who do not use a motor tester all the time.
The iTIG III Winding Analyzer will take the guess work out of your maintenance processes when it comes to the testing of insulation systems. It provides a simple all-in-one solution that can be used by anyone with only minimal training on motor testing in the plant and in the shop.
Tracking of test data over time, including Partial Discharge, for each motor and generator can be done automatically by the tester. The results can be viewed in Excel or with a database software for trend analysis purposes.
There are online methods to collect PD data. However, there are complications related to noise elimination. Therefore, Electrom recommends offline PD measurements during outages. With offline testing, test voltages can be higher than the peak voltages during online monitoring and testing. This provides earlier warnings of issues and insulation breakdown. PD detection capability is available in Electrom iTIG III models D4P, D6P, D12P and D15P.
Electrom testers are used in a variety of industries:
- Wind Energy
- Oil & Gas
- Pulp and Paper
- And more
Why do industrial users need a surge and PD tester?

Trend Analysis and Report Capabilities
- PDF or HTML reports can be generated by the iTIG III motor tester and sent to a server with a couple of clicks
- Reports can be generated on PCs using Electrom’s TRPro report program
- Trend Analysis:
- A full set of built in trend data tables and multi-test graphs for Megohm, PI and Hipot/Step Voltage tests is available
- The results for each test set can be automatically stored in a line item test summary file. They can be exported to a server with one click of a button.
- The exported test summary files (test results over time) can be viewed in Excel or in a database program in a spreadsheet format. This makes trend analysis easy.
- Test Data is transferred from the iTIG II to a PC or server using a USB Flash Drive, Ethernet or a wireless connection
The iTIG III combines multiple testing technologies into a single instrument. From low to high voltage, all your tests can be completed with the push of a button. The iTIG III is available in four models with additional feature options and DC motor test accessories. Learn More.
iTIG II MINI
The iTIG II MINI is a small, light tester in a briefcase type enclosure, ideal for field tests of low voltage motors. Since it can be connected to the PP-II Power Pack, it can also be used to test high voltage equipment. It is an economical solution to motor testing in general.
Portable Power Pack PP II
The PP II is the only truly portable 18kV, 24kV, 30kV and 40kV Power Pack on the market. It connects to the iTIG II, and the iTIG II MINI, with low voltage cables. Data generated by the PP-II is captured, displayed and stored in the iTIG II.
