AEGIS™ Shaft Grounding Ring (SGR) uKit
Product Announcement from Applied Industrial Technologies
The AEGIS SGR uKit includes:
- AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring
- Four mounting bracket styles and hardware to adapt the AEGIS ring to virtually any end bracket
The AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring can be fastened with screws (included in kit) or conductive epoxy (sold separately). It fits over slingers, seals or shaft shoulders.
Without an AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring, induced shaft voltages cause destructive bearing currents that can lead to catastrophic bearing damage and cause premature motor failure. The AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring dramatically extends motor service life by safely channeling harmful VFD induced shaft voltages away from the motor's bearings to ground.
