AEGIS Bearing Protection Rings

AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring AEGIS® SGR uKIT

The AEGIS® Shaft Grounding Ring Kit with universal mounting brackets allows universal mounting options to fit almost any motor design in NEMA frames from 56 to 449T or IEC frames from 132M to 355M.

VFD inverters have been found to be a major cause of motor bearing failure in inverter-drive systems.

While the AEGIS® Ring conducts harmful shaft voltages away from the bearings to the motor’s frame, it is advisable to also ensure a low impedance path to earth ground. Recommended by motor and drive manufacturers, this high frequency grounding path is best accomplished with a braided strap from the motor to ground.
