Motors and Drives Testing:
Testing motors and drives is the foundation for everything our team does. We work to improve our lab and processes every day. Got a difficult motor application or design problem to solve? Need motor efficiency or safety compliance testing? Are you interested in variable frequency drive performance?

We have several test standards in our scope including one for variable frequency drive performance that no other lab in the world has. All the testing in our scope of standards can be conducted without requiring a witness from any of the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTLs). If you have a need that is outside of our scope we can and do work closely with all of the major NRTLs including UL, CSA, Intertek, and TÜV. When this happens they provide witnesses and accept our test data for safety compliance. For US DOE efficiency compliance we offer turn-key solutions that do not require the use of an NRTL.

The procedures our test lab follow are well documented, traceable, and repeatable. All of our accreditations are based from ISO Guide 17025 which means we are always in calibration and highly accurate. ISO guide 17025 is specific to test laboratories and is the foundation of how we maintain our lab and approach all of our testing. Combined, we offer more than 100 years of engineering experience and have performed detailed tests on more than 3,000 motors in our lab. We pride ourselves on being flexible and nimble.
