Identify Possible Motor Abuse or Misapplication
It is now possible to track motors through the stray flux to confirm potential process problems. If an electric motor is designed to be started and stopped once a day and it is actually being started 10, 20 or even 100 times a day, there is going to be a maintenance problem in the future. With
the SST-50 Start/Stop/Timer identify potential process abuse before problems develop.
More Accurately Schedule Maintenance
Schedule maintenance according to length of run time instead of on a monthly, quarterly, or even annual basis. Prioritize motors by duty cycle during outage times to better share work requirements. For example - did that motor really run 200 hours or 2,000 hours?
In processes where there are more than one motor involved, it is easy to lose track of which motor id doing the majority of the work. Understand quickly the role each motor in the process carries.
Energy Use Observation
Monitor energy usage for projects by run time hours. Examples include irrigation pumps, just how long did that pump run?
SST-50 Start Stop Timer
The SST-50 Start Stop Timer is a rechargeable batter enclosed unit that magnetically attaches to the outside of the motor case and counts each start. It records run time in six (6) minute intervals (1/10 of an hour). This display gives the maintenance procession knowledge on duty cycle that motors are operating within.
