Project History

Experiments are often required in order to validate new technologies, theories and techniques. These motor bearing experiments were initiated in order to characterize the performance of IQ PreAlert, a motor bearing condition assessment system developed at Rockwell. From the time of this original impetus, the experimental program has expanded to provide a motor performance database which can be used to validate and/or improve a host of motor condition assessment techniques. Some projects which have recently or are currently making use of this database include: Winsnode condition assessment technology, model based diagnostic techniques, and motor speed determination algorithms.
