About the EASA Accreditation Program
Assuring the efficiency and reliability of repaired electric motors
It has been proven that electric motor efficiency can be maintained by following defined good practice repair and rewind procedures. As a result, the Electrical Apparatus Service Association, Inc. (EASA) developed an international accreditation program for service centers that is 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” from the 2003 study The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency by EASA and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT).
This groundbreaking accreditation program uses EASA-approved independent, third-party auditors to evaluate service centers and assure they are following prescribed good practice electrical and mechanical repair procedures that maintain motor efficiency and reliability.
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
Covered Repair Processes
Compliance with the EASA Accreditation Program is assessed using a checklist that includes more than 70 criteria. Covered repair processes include:
- Instrument calibration
- Mechanical measurements
- Core testing and rewinding
