Subject: HALT test motors
Does anybody know how to perform a HALT test on motors? We are trying to simulate the wearout of bearings and brushes. The motor manufacturer data sheet claims the MTBF of bearings is 50000 hours under nominal load conditions at 10000rpm. There is no description of what "nominal load condition" is. We would like to test this claim. How do we set up the test? Thanks for all the help in advance.
