When it comes to industrial automation, precision and reliability are paramount. To cater to the intricate needs of businesses in South Africa needing top-notch drive testing solutions, Motion Tronic proudly introduces its state-of-the-art electronics workshop. This new facility is poised to revolutionise drive testing capabilities, ushering in a new era of efficiency, accuracy, and performance. As we delve into the cutting-edge features of this workshop, let’s explore how Motion Tronic continues to be the beacon of innovation and expertise in industrial automation.

Our versatile power station

Enhancing Performance Across the Spectrum

At the core of our electronics workshop lies a versatile power station, accommodating various pluggable power interface options. We cater to diverse industrial setups, offering voltages such as the steadfast 220VAC single phase, 220VAC three-phase, 380VAC three-phase, and 0-1000VDC power range. These voltage options are seamlessly controlled through meticulously calibrated pluggable interfaces. This symphony of power is orchestrated by a PC equipped with serial and ethernet connections. This strategic combination ensures seamless drive software installation and efficient communication, streamlining the testing process.

Cutting-edge testing instruments

Precision Instrumentation for In-depth Analysis

Our electronics workshop features a range of cutting-edge testing instruments, each serving a specific role in the analysis process. The versatile oscilloscopes capture intricate waveforms, revealing transient moments often unnoticed. Dual channel power suppliers create easy connections for powering up control voltage rails. For simulating real-world scenarios, a signal generator takes the spotlight, creating circumstances that mimic industrial environments. Furthermore, the Inductance Capacitance Resistance (LCR) meter provides precise measurements of component harmonics, offering clear data insights. Digital multi-meters capture essential data points, providing a comprehensive view for accurate testing.

Weller solder stations

Crafting Soldering & Desoldering Expertise

The art of electronics demands precise soldering and desoldering techniques. Desoldering is the process of removing soldered connections to disassemble or replace components on a circuit board or other electronic devices. It’s a fundamental skill in electronics repair, manufacturing, and prototyping. Our electronics workshop features a range of Weller solder stations, each executed with surgical precision. Notably, the vacuum desoldering station ensures seamless removal of components with minimal heat and fuss. Complementing this, our hot air stations delicately perform Surface Mount Devices (SMD) rework with finesse. SMDs are miniature electronic components directly mounted onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). This modern mounting technique offers space-saving advantages and is widely used in densely populated electronic systems.

Testing Stations: Assurance and Innovation in Harmony

The dyno unit, with its sophisticated instrumentation and precision engineering, simulates an array of demanding conditions that closely mirror the challenges your drives may encounter in their operational lifespan. This meticulous load testing is not just a measure of performance; it’s a real time test on the integrity of the repair. By placing drives under the watchful gaze of the dyno unit, we’re able to meticulously evaluate their response to varying loads, torque demands, and dynamic conditions. This comprehensive assessment ensures that every drive that leaves our workshop has not only been repaired or optimised but has also been rigorously validated to withstand the trials and tribulations of the industrial landscape.
