AEGIS technology is designed for use when variable frequency drives (VFDs) are used to control electric motors. The VFD induces destructive voltages on the motor shaft which discharge through the motor bearings or bearings in attached equipment. These discharges cause fusion craters on the bearing race walls. Over time, this can lead to noise, vibration, bearing failure, and catastrophic motor failure. The AEGIS Shaft Grounding Ring channels these harmful VFD-induced shaft currents safely to ground. A market leader, the AEGIS Ring offers a 2-Year Extended Warranty.
