ST4030A – Impulse Wiring Tester


Diagnose the Insulation Quality and Deterioration of Rotor Windings while in Assembled State via Response Waveform Quantification


RM2610 – Electrode Resistance Measurement System


The ST4030A is an impulse winding tester, or surge tester, that combines the functions of both a resistance meter and insulation-withstand testing required for electric motor winding manufacturers to improve quality. Meet the needs of more reliable motor windings in light of the increasing use of electric vehicles and self-driving technology.

Key Features

  • Identify previously undetectable defects.
  • Detect waveforms with high precision (200 MHz high speed sampling × high 12-bit resolution).
  • Identify single-fault turns via quantification of response waveforms into LC and RC values.
  • Diagnose defective insulation (pseudo-shorts) between motor windings by testing for microscopic partial discharges hidden in noise (option).
Measurement items • Quantification (LC value, RC value) of the response waveform obtained when impulse voltage is applied, pass / fail judgment
• Waveform judgment using AREA value, Flutter, Laplacian etc.
