SAMATIC
Digital AUTOMATIC Motor TESTERS
Additional Details, Additional Pictures

SOMETIMES WE ARE ASKED BY POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS: " Why should we buy YOUR tester? We saw the latest Digital Baker Tester , Baker looks nice ,has a lot of buttons to push, nice CRT Screen and, is sold to us by our favorite wire &insulation Salesman !! So What are the Winning SAMATIC Advantages over your competition??"
Here are some of the EXTRA features that come with our REVOLUTIONARY tester. HUNDRED'S of shops have purchased and used it in the last 24 months and they all say:


"Most people think this product is too good to be true.
But once they use it,
and because of the results,
they are compelled to tell others"...

SAMATIC displays both WAVEFORMS and their ANALYSIS in WORDS & NUMBERS

This is an EXCLUSIVE Samatic Feature. This is the first time that a tester explains and determines the problem for you..
SAMATIC puts an end to the GUESSWORK !


Some Advantages of having this SAMATIC feature:

  1. You do not need the costly training and re-training on how to interpret the readings.
  2. You are told EXACTLY where the problem is , i.e. which one of the phase(s).
  3. You can send anybody , not just one or two "trained" people to any site.
  4. Events that the eye CANNOT detect, are easily explained by the SAMATIC Analysis.
  5. It is easy and reliable to TREND the motor over a period of time. NEVER deduct the WRONG conclusions. !
  6. Your customers TRUST you, trust the OBJECTIVITY of the findings and let you service the motor.




FIGURE 2: SINGLE COIL COMPARISON

         


Here , the tester is being used in a SINGLE- COIL - COMPARISION - MODE , which is EXCLUSIVE to SAMATIC. The operator sets any coil (or a phase, or a group of coils, etc.) as a REFERENCE COIL. Then every coil is tested and COMPARED to the first one.The results are displayed in NUMBERS such as 100% , or in Overlapping/non overlapping curves. It takes 4 seconds to test each coil, as it is all done AUTOMATICALLY.

THIS FEATURE HAS MANY IMPORTANT APPLICATIONS : In Checking your Windings, In singling-out a bad DC coil out of a group , in Comparing Traction Coils and many other possibilities.



FIGURE 3: SINGLE COIL SCREEN :

   

(left screen)Reporting the 2nd COIL has a TTT  (Turn-To-Turn) Short.       (right screen) Reporting 4th coil as perfect


Up to 10 Coils can display simultaneously on the screen, one next to the other.
Note that you can set any coil as a reference , and then find out WHO is EQUAL, WHO IS WORSE and WHO IS BETTER than the reference coil. The SAMATIC Tester can report it because it is the only tester capable of SCORING the tested coils by NUMBERS . Therefore a better coil will be >100. A Worse will read numbers below 100. etc.




FIGURE 4: BROKEN ROTOR BARS DETECTOR :

   

This SAMATIC exclusive feature was added in Feb. 2001. With the tested motor under load, just take a clamp reading over each of the 3 phase leads and read the screen results. Any damaged/broken rotor bar is immediately identified. What a time saver...




FIGURE 5: The MAIN MENU SCREEN

   

In SAMATIC, all the different tests are selected from simple and clear menues, on the screen. Every test is accompanied by a different screen display. If you made any mistake- a message will pop-up to direct you.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO CARRY ANY OPERATING MANUAL.
We built it into the Tester. !!!





FIGURE 6 : NO MOTOR-SIZE LIMITS-
From very small to VERY LARGE MOTORS



The same SAMATIC Tester will test very Small to very large Motors .
From Fractional HP to Over 10,000 HP.
NO OTHER TESTER CAN DELIVER THIS PERFORMANCE. Samatic does not need additional Power Packs which are mandatory with any competitive testers. Samatic has AUTOMATIC screen SCALING and screen "Expanded View" to handle details in Small , or Odd motors, so that no detail is left unnoticed wheather it is a small motor or a very Large one.

FIGURE 7 : The Instant ARMATURE Tester Fixture

   

SAMATIC invented the Instant Armature Testing Fixture. It adjusts around any size Yoke. Then you need to take ONLY 4 - 5 readings and the TEST IS DONE !!!NO NEED FOR THE OLD BAR-TO BAR TESTER. Check 100 or 200 Bars Armature in LESS than a minute.The SAMATIC will also indicate WHICH coil is shorted etc. It even knows how to isolate the Compensation Coils affect.



FIGURE 8 : THE BUILT-IN PRINTER

  

The Built-In printer is packed in the left compartment inside the SAMATIC case (see arrow). This is a portable and rechargable printer.It allows for immediate FULL DOCUMENTATION, so that you can leave the report with the customer if you wish.The report prints the Date, Your Name, Your customer name, the Job number, The motor Specs, the Test results, PI, Hi-Pot, Surge, In Numbers and in WAVEFORMS. Its Simple, Its Reliable and Customers love it.(note- you can always connect different printers to the printer port).


FIGURE 9: Built In CALIBRATION MODE



If you have used competitors' tester you know how much time (3 weeks more or less) and Money ($$$) , you MUST spend every year to calibrate your tester at the manufacturer labs. SAMATIC put an end to this by integrating thecalibration bridges INSIDE the tester. We WANT you to calibrate often, to attain maximum precision. This is why , you select a CALIBRATE from the main screen and in 60 seconds, it is AUTOMATICALLY calibrating itself. This invention of SAMATIC is important and is possible only because of the advanced SAMATIC technology.


FIGURE 10 : POLARIZATION INDEX (PI) Testing, Charting, Calculations.



Polarization Index analysis is becoming mandatory in many countries around the world. It is an excellent predictive tool. It takes 10 minutes to complete.It is difficult to chart the results as you need a semi-logarithmic paper , you need a very precise megger and you need to calculate the 1Min/10 Min values to PASS/FAIL the motor.The SAMATIC tester DOES IT ALL AUTOMATICALLY. It tests, Charts, Documents and Calculates by itself. Look at the Figure above. It shows a Testing Voltage of 1000V, and you can read thecurrent values which are changing by 0.01 MicroAmps. This is the needed precision to obtain the proper analysis. ONLY SAMATIC TESTERS CAN PERFORM THIS TEST, because their built-in MEGGER isvery advanced and sensitive. The latest competitors megger provides only 1 MicroAmp steps. ( 100 times less sensitive than SAMATIC ) !!!


FIGURE 11 : COMMUNICATION WITH A PC



ALL the test results from SAMATIC'S Built-In memory- can be downloaded (sent) into any PC or Lap-Topfor storage and Trending. In the future, when you test again the same motor- you can place the new test results next to the old ones and "TREND" the motor.The difference between SAMATIC techniqe and the competition, is that we save not just the waveforms, but also the NUMERICAL SCORING of the motor, so you can quickly see that this motor went from 94 to 87, and you know immediately WHEN you must act. Also- the waveforms are saved with the same scaling AUTOMATICALLY (same Volts/Cm), so a visual comparison is precise.


FIGURE 12 : YOUR LOGO


When you first use the tester, enter your Name, Phone Number and Fax numbers. From now on, any report you print will contain these details in the heading.

FIGURE 13- PORTABLE    LIGHTWEIGHT and   RUGGED
( Is Steve really smiling or is it a painful expression ??)




ANSWER: Steve is definitely smiling. The tester is so light, it is impact-proof, it has everything built-in, and Steve is going out to test 15 motors from 2HP to 10,000 HP at Miller Breweries. This is all the equipment he needs. No Big Testers, No attached Printers, Computers, Extra Power Pack, and not even another person to help in todays on-site testing.
