Experience has shown that 20 to 40 percent of motor systems tested may have some sort of alarm condition. Just because a motor has exceeded the alarm limits in MCA Basic™ or MCA PRO™ it does not necessarily mean the motor will fail or should be stopped immediately. For over 30 years the dedicated staff at ALL-TEST Pro have gathered data and resources to determine when a motor will most likely fail on the most common 3-phase squirrel cage motors.

More and more companies are proactively monitoring their assets using at least one technology to provide early defect identification. This makes up the core of condition monitoring – allowing you to identify and address defects early, before they compound and cause further damage, result in unplanned equipment downtime or compromise employee safety.

It’s a question that gets asked a lot – “How do we know when we need to conduct an RCA”? The answer is by using RCA triggers. An RCA trigger is something that can be used to prompt us to conduct an RCA if the outcome of an event breaches a specific threshold. Conversely it also lets us know when we do not have to conduct an RCA based on the event not breaching a specific threshold.
