Sakor Technologies' Dynamometer Systems to Enhance Electric Motor Testing

Manufacturing Technology Insights | Monday, October 25, 2021

SAKOR’s new motor testing dynamometers will provide highly precise motor performance evaluation to electric motor manufacturers.

FREMONT, CA: Automotive companies employ dynamometers to measure power in a variety of power generation systems. The significance of a dynamometer is increasing to focus in the overall development of any vehicle. SAKOR Technologies Inc., a recognized leader for high-performance dynamometer systems, has developed a series of dynamometer systems that are ideal for customers who need to test and verify the efficiency of electric motors in accordance with a variety of national and international standards, such as IEC 60034-2-1, IEEE 112B, and Canadian standard C390-93. The SAKOR machines can test motors with two to eight poles and power ratings ranging from 10 watts to over 3 megawatts.

The new SAKOR motor testing dynamometers provide high-accuracy testing for designers and manufacturers of electric motors of all sizes, for use in everything from huge industrial equipment to household appliances like fans, refrigerators, and washing machines. They've been tweaked such that each machine can test the largest range of motor sizes while still maintaining the required accuracy tolerances. SAKOR systems meet the standards' tight tolerances and stringent data precision and accuracy criteria.

These dynamometers, which are capable of precisely evaluating motor performance, are a crucial tool for engineers looking to minimize fossil fuel usage and improve energy efficiency in order to meet stringent environmental requirements and laws.

“We have worked hard to define this line of systems to give the maximum utility per machine and make it most cost-effective for the customer,” states Randal Beattie, president of SAKOR. “By optimizing equipment to test the widest range of motor sizes with one system while staying within required accuracy levels, customers will need to buy the fewest number of machines at the lowest total cost.”

Regulators are developing energy efficiency requirements for the billions of small, medium, and large electric motors used around the world as part of a global effort to minimize the use of fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. These rules outline how to guarantee that motors fulfil efficiency standards that have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented. Induction motors are first in line for regulation; permanent magnet motors will most certainly be regulated in the future years, followed by inverter-driven motors.
