IPS IntegraCoil — Testing

Quality Assurance —
Documented and ready for verification

For every IntegraCoil rewind, IPS conducts in process and post rewind testing on every motor and generator. Every IntegraCoil rewind comes with the following testing and documentation:

IntegraCoil design qualification testing meets or exceeds the following:

  • IEEE 522 Surge Testing
