Baker D12R, 12kV Digital Winding Tester

The Baker D12R is part of the D-Series digital winding testers. With the D12R/D6R/D3R Digital Winding Tester from Baker Instrument Company, an SKF Group Company, you can perform Resistance, HiPot and Surge tests, as well as digitize and store data for future use.

The Resistance Test verifies the existence of dead shorts within the turn-to-turn coils, shows any imbalances between phases due to turn count differences, along with locating poor wire connections or contacts.

DC HiPot testing detects faults in groundwall/earth insulation, and also provides a complete Polarization Index test. The groundwall/earth insulation system consists of the wires insulation, slot liner insulation, wedges, varnish, and sometimes phase paper.

Surge testing detects faults in both inter-turn winding and phase-to-phase insulation systems. Using advanced analog-to-digital conversion hardware, the “D” series captures the surge test waveform, remembers it, displays it indefinitely, and prints it to the included ink jet printer. This surge waveform storage capability can be applied to other motors besides simple induction motors. The D Series can be used to test all the rotating fields of a synchronous motor by storing the waveform from a surge test on one coil, and comparing that waveform to a waveform from every other coil. The Digital Winding Tester can also be used on DC armatures and fields. The resulting waveform can then be compared to all other bar-to-bar or span tests to detect a winding fault.
