Precision Electric, Inc.
Indianas First EASA Accredited Industrial Service Center
EASA Accreditation Program Overview
It has been proven that electric motor efficiency can be maintained during repair and rewind by following defined good practices. EASA has developed an international accreditation program for service centers based on the sources of these good practices, namely ANSI/EASA AR100: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus and the Good Practice Guide of the 2003 study The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency, by EASA and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT).
The intent of this groundbreaking accreditation program is to evaluate service centers for evidence of compliance to assure that they are using prescribed good practices to maintain motor efficiency and reliability during electrical and mechanical repairs of electric motors. The program accomplishes this by use of independent, third-party auditors.
Assuring the Efficiency and Reliability of Repaired Electric Motors
The EASA Accreditation Program covers three phase, squirrel-cage induction motors. Its scope includes both mechanical repairs and electrical rewinding.
The EASA Accreditation Program for motor repair:
- Assures usage of prescribed good practices that help maintain motor efficiency and reliability
- Covers 23 categories and more than 70 criteria (see the Audit Checklist with Explanations at www.easa.com/accreditation)
- Requires external audits by EASA-approved independent, third-party auditors
- Assures continuing compliance with proven good practices through mandatory internal self audits
- Is open to EASA members and non-members
