Motor/Generator Testers


Appliance motors are always evolving. A customer needed several fully automated testers for use at their offshore manufacturing facilities. Of course, test time was of paramount importance because of the high production volume on these product lines.

Vidac provided two versions of these motor testers, both of which were fully automated and could complete the functional test in minimal time.
