Over 1,100 shops have purchased and use SAMATIC testers daily. Before we introduce
some of the EXTRA features that come with Samatic's New Generation Testers, Lets
read what some SAMATIC tester's users have to say...
Or the complete Curves and Analysis screen, Reporting shorts in Phase C . ( Quality
This is an EXCLUSIVE Samatic Feature. For the first
time a tester determines and explains the problem(s)
SAMATIC always displays :
WAVEFORMS and also the ANALYSIS in WORDS & NUMBERS
SAMATIC puts an end to the GUESSWRK
you can set any coil (or a phase, or a group of coils, etc.) as a ReferenceCoil
(=100) and then find out who is equal, who is worse and who is better than the
reference coil. The SAMATIC Tester can report it because it is the only tester capable
of SCORING each tested coils by NUMBERS . Therefore a better coil will read above
100, a worse coil will read numbers below 100 , and an equal one will read 100.
A clear visual display of Curves (Overlapping or non-overlapping ) isalso provided
, as in Fig 2.1 and 2.2
Up to 10 Coils can display simultaneously on the screen, one next to the other.
testing each coil is fully automatic and takes only 4 seconds !!
In SAMATIC, all the different tests are selected from simple and clear Interactive
Every test is accompanied with a unique screen display. If you make a mistake- a
message will instantly pop-up to guide you
This way- you don't need to carry the operating manual with you. It has been built
into the tester.
The same SAMATIC unit will test very small to very large motors, from Fractional
HP (KW) to 10,000+ HP.
Samatic does not need additional Power Packs which are mandatory with any competitive
testers. Samatic is using the built -in Adaptive Joules Booster that takes care of
large size motors.
In addition, Samatichasautomatic screen scaling and screen "Expanded View" to handle
details in small , or Odd motors, so that no minute detail is left unnoticed whether
it is a small motor or a very large one.
Customers TRUST the OBJECTIVITY of your findings , therefore select you over
the others for all their predictive and repair needs.
Some Advantages of having this SAMATIC feature:
You do not need the costly training seminars on how to interpret the readings.
You are told EXACTLY where the problem is , i.e. which one of the phase(s).
You can send anybody , not just one or two "trained" people to any site.
Events that the eye CANNOT detect, are easily explained by the SAMATIC Analysis.
It is easy and reliable to TREND the motor over a period of time. NEVER deduct
the wrong conclusions. !
Every SAMATIC Tester isPrecise, Fully Automatic, Auto-Ranging, Auto-Calibrated
, with Menu selectable
testings! Just select the desired test, push the Start button and the test is done,displayed

SAMATIC -Single Coils Comparison Test
This shop is checking a set of
HV coils before connecting them
The Tester is looking for a perfect match,
otherwise It will not pass the coil(s)
This Feature Has Many Important Applications :
In Checking and verifying your Windings,
In singling-out a bad DC coil out of a group ,
In Armature testings
in Comparing Traction Coils and
In many other possibilities (more details in the Samatic operating manual)
Another SAMATIC exclusive feature . With the tested motor running under load, just
take a clamp reading over each of the 3 phase leads and read the screen results.
Any damaged or broken rotor bar is immediately identified.

Samatic -The Step Voltage Test
The Step Voltage Test is useful if performed at regular maintenance intervals. Changes
in results may indicate insulation degradation. The Test is to be conducted as per
IEEE Std. 95. SAMATIC testers performs it automatically. On the left picture is
the STEP SCREEN with the easy setting, and on the right is the immediate printout.
SAMATIC -NO LIMIT to motor size !
From very small to very LARGE motors
SAMATIC Motor Testers
All-in-One, Digital , Automatic , Portable
the Industry's best selling testers in 2004-2010
In All 3 sizes :6,250 V, 12,500 V, 15,000 V
A Built-In-Printer is packed in the left compartment inside the SAMATIC case (see
arrow). This is a portable and rechargable printer.It allows for immediate FULL DOCUMENTATION,
so that you can leave the report with the customer if you wish. The report prints
the Date, Your Name, Your Customer Name, the Job number, The motor Specs, the Test
results, PI, Hi-Pot, Surge. Results are in both Numbers and in Waveforms. Its Simple,
Its Reliable and Customers love it.
Note that when you return to your shop, you can download the test results and print
your extensive report on your letterhead with your office printer.
If you have used competitors' tester you know how much time and Money ($$$) , you
MUST spend every year to calibrate your tester at the manufacturer labs. SAMATIC
put an end to this by integrating the calibration bridges INSIDE the tester. We
encourage you to calibrate more often, always keeping the tester in its highest sensitivity
Simply select the CALIBRATE from the main menu and in 60 seconds, it is AUTOMATICALLY
calibrating itself. This innovative feature of SAMATIC is important and made possible
only thanks to the advanced SAMATIC technology.
Polarization Index analysis is becoming mandatory in many countries around the world.
It is an excellent predictive tool. It takes 10 minutes to complete.It is difficult
to chart the results as you need a semi-logarithmic paper , you need a very precise
megger and you need to calculate the 1Min/10 Min values to PASS/FAIL the motor.The
SAMATIC tester DOES IT ALL AUTOMATICALLY. It Tests, Charts, Documents and Calculates
by itself. Look at the Figure above. It shows a Testing Voltage of 1000V, and you
can read the current values which are changing by 0.01 MicroAmps. This is the needed
precision to obtain the proper analysis. ONLY SAMATIC testers can perform this test
with such precision . This is due to the very advanced built-in sensitive MEGGER
. To date, Samatic's runner-up competitor's megger provides only 1 MicroAmp steps.
( 100 times less sensitive than SAMATIC ) !!!
ALL the test results from Samatic's Built-In memory- can be downloaded (sent) into
any PC or Lap-Top for storage and trending. The Tester comes with the SWIMET- the
most advanced software to use and work with the tested data . Your tested data can
always be printed out using your Letterhead etc. In the future, when you test again
the same motor- you can place the new test results next to the old ones and "TREND"
the motor.The difference between SAMATIC technique and the competition, is that we
save not just the waveforms, but also the NUMERICAL SCORING of the motor, so you
can quickly see that this motor went from 94 to 87, and you know immediately when
to act. Also- the waveforms are saved with the same scaling AUTOMATICALLY (same
Volts/Cm), so a visual comparison is precise.
The Fixture is adjusted over the Armature, and its 2 leads are connected to the tester
Samatic -The Instant Armature Testing Fixture
Sliding the fixture and taking 5 readings
is all what the tester needs

other testers require a good knowledge of buttons
such as: Focus, Intensity, Horizontal Position, Vertical Position, Volts per Division,
Scale ranging, Trace/ Frequency Sweep Control and more...
SAMATIC testers have only a Start button. The tester takes over and frees the user
from any manual adjustments. The display of the SOLID STATE SCREEN is AUTOMATICALLY
ranged, focused and positioned.
Anytime you need more visual details-simply select from the menu. In Fig 12.1 to
12.4- the user does not need to play with or adjust any buttons or even remember
the screen scaling (volts/inch), but simply press the dot key to toggle between screens.
How easy is to separate and isolate the curves, and to
Probe any deviation even if its far away. All screen changes are done with just
one key !

This employee is going out to test 15 motors from 2HP to 7,000 HP at Miller Breweries.
This is all the equipment he needs. No Big Testers, No attached Printers, Computers,
Extra Power Pack, and not even another person to help in today’s on-site testing...
Samatic Unique built-in Resistance Meter comes with a Kelvin based temperature-compensated
Circuitry which is the most precise and sensitive on the market. It starts to measure
as low as 0.001 Ohm (1 Milli Ohm) and goes way over 200 Ohms. No other tester is
designed to cover such a range. This is another reason as to why SAMATIC detects
problems which B--- simply CAN NOT.
