These new instruments now include low-voltage inductance, impedance, phase angle and capacitance, coil, and DC step voltage tests in a smaller, lighter-weight portable unit. Like their predecessors, these analyzers also conduct winding resistance, megohm, DC HiPot, surge tests and DC bar-to-bar armature tests. All units come with a more intuitive, easy-to-navigate touch screen graphical user interface, and can be ordered in an array of configurations that suit the specific needs of a given customer.

The Baker DX series is designed for use in motor test/maintenance, industrial, and OEM motor manufacturing environments. The analyzer can perform motor tests from 4 to 40 kV (with an optional Power Pack), and can be configured with just the test functions customers wish to have. Baker DX analyzers have all of the motor test capabilities of Baker D-series and ST-series testers, including compatibility with SKF power pack units.

The new analyzers are available today in 4kV, 6kV, 6kV HO (high output), 12kV, and 12kV HO versions, along with a wide array of configuration options and accessories to meet specific application needs. Such options include coil test, resistance-inductance-capacitance test, DC armature test, simple meg-ohm test, and either single- or three-lead configurations.

Units may be ordered in the U.S. through authorized distributors, or from SKF partners and distributors throughout Europe, Asia, Latin America, Australia, Africa the Middle East and Canada.
