Platforms factories LEROY SOMER are regularly testing electric motors, for validation purposes and performance characterization. The amount of daily tests justifies the automation of measurements and their processing, sharing and archiving results in a database, as well as automated generation of test reports .
To meet these needs, Leroy Somer has chosen to deploy TrackReport on various test rigs and design offices.
Immediately after each test, TrackReport reads and displays the measured physical quantities, such as voltages, currents, powers, torques, speeds, temperatures and resistance ... and automatically processes the data according to the algorithms of different standards. It allows the operator to validate the various load curves, before storing the measurements and the results in a database. This database of validated tests and processed data then becomes accessible to different actors in Leroy Somer, thanks to the database client module of TrackReport. This database module notably allows the implementation of advanced search functions, configured for rapid selection of relevant tests using various business criteria.
The templates for test reports, which implement different specific standards for electric motors (CEI60034 -2-1 , CSA 390 10 , IEEE STD 112), and display the results in a test report are made by ORME. These templates will be delivered to Leroy Somer teams during training days.
Engineers of Leroy-Somer liked the ease of implementation of automatic test reports in TrackReport, as well as the ability of ORME technical team to implement an effective organization of business data for performing databases. They were sensitive to both the time saving that the application brings in the production of test results and the quality of test reports.
The deployment of TrackReport and its database, as well as the user training will be provided during April and May 2014.
