Title: All-in-one motor assessment precision sizing system and capacitance calculator unit

Abstract: An apparatus designed to accurately measure the capacitance required in order to optimize the power factor of single phase and three phase induction motors. Capacitor circuits are interruptably connected to the busses by means of push-button switches. Leads electrically connected to the busses are attached to a calculator unit which is, in turn, electrically connected to the load leads. The calculator unit displays in digital figures the actual operating conditions of an induction motor and the capacitance required for power factor optimization. The correct capacitance required to increase power factor in the 99% to 100% range is determined by either: (1) pushing a switch or a combination of switches, or (2) pushing the automatic mapping switch.
