All Shaft Grounding Devices Are Not Created Equal: Insist on the Best
As variable frequency drives (VFDs) have become more common, awareness of the electrical bearing damage caused by VFDs has grown by leaps and bounds. And so has demand for a solution. In the solution department, AEGIS® Shaft Grounding Rings have led the pack. With some still in operation for almost fifteen years, AEGIS Rings have proved their mettle in millions of installations worldwide.
No other protection against bearing currents can boast of a record like that: Neither carbon grounding brush, nor fiber bundle grounding "ring," nor common mode choke.
But not everyone realizes that all bearing protection is not created equal. That's why it's so important that you ask for AEGIS by name. Whether you're getting a motor repaired and ask for a shaft grounding kit to be installed, or buying a new motor with shaft grounding factory-installed, it's essential that you be specific. Don't accept just any form of shaft grounding. Insist on the most effective and longest lasting shaft grounding product out there: AEGIS Shaft Grounding Rings.
