Inslulation Fault Detector?

Does anybody know "Inslutaion Fault Detection Method" for lighting and motor circuits NDT method?

As far as I know, before burning motor stator coil, resistance of insulation started to decrease. during burning, it become zero = short circuit.

We have MEGGER for measurement of cable resistance, but dows anybody now something easy and cost effective way for it?

I have 50 motors at the factory. Nominal current around 16 Ampers.

best regards.

Re: Inslulation Fault Detector?
To whom it may concern,

There is a method used in my organization to trend motor and generator insulation health. This technology, as stated, is a trending method which will give indications of insulation deterioration by means of measuring Partial Discharge (PD)activity in the motor/generator winding. The technology works most effectively on machines with ratings at or above 6kV. For more information, please contact myself or Dan Leonard, Technical Leader of Electro-Mechanical Testing on (518) 385-0165. Daniel.Leonard@ps.ge.com

Re: Inslulation Fault Detector?
Please try Thermography since before the motor actually burns, as you
rightly say the insulation resistance starts decreasing, which could result
in local temperature changes, and these changes should result in hot or
cold spots (temperature changes).

Sorry that I am not able to post this reply in the forum due to limited
access to internet. I hope Mr.Rolf does not mind.

Exertus Dual 120

The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192 sources or Selenium 75 source
...
s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
