Greetings

Pardon my ignorance, not being an engineer, my question is what instrument can one use to know the power factor of an electrical motor?

Regards,

Itos

Clip On Power facter meters are available that have two leads plus a clamp CT (like a clip on ameter) You connect the two leads, one to phase and the other to neutral. The current clamp goes around that phase conductor.
Siemens used to make such a device so they could be worth talking to.
