MRT: Motor & Line Rotation Tester
Tests for Motor Rotation
Tests for Phase Sequence
Tests Presence of All Phases
Tests 20mVAC to 600VAC, 3Ø
Recessed Push Button
Clip Leads for Easy Hook-Up
The MRT is designed to determine which combination of motor leads will provide the desired motor rotation when matched with the three phase electrical system under test. The Correct Rotation LED indicates the phase sequence to obtain the desired motor rotation. Remove power from the circuit to be tested and connect the three MRT leads (L1, L2, and L3) to the terminals to be tested.
For Line Rotation Testing: After the MRT has been connect to the line with power off, re-apply power while depressing the “Rotation Test” push button on the MRT. If the green Correct Rotation LED lights, the three phase rotation sequence matches the MRT sequence. If the LED does not light, remove power and reconnect the MRT by switching two leads. The green Correct Rotation LED should light. Remove power and rewire the control to match the rotation determined by the MRT. If the LED still does not light, one or more phases is missing. Check your fuses and wiring.
For Motor Rotation Testing: Connect the MRT leads to the motor leads. Rotate the motor by hand while depressing the “Rotation Test” push button on the MRT. If the green Correct Rotation LED lights, then connecting the motor leads to the matching three phase voltage leads will provide the desired rotation. If it does not light, switch two leads and try again.
Warning: Always remove power when connecting and disconnecting the MRT clip leads!
