MOTION CONTROL: Electro Static Technology’s AEGIS SGR Bearing Protection RingTM can now be installed quickly and easily with conductive epoxy, eliminating the need to drill bracket holes in the motor’s end bell. For motors controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs), the SGR channels harmful motor-shaft currents away from bearings and safely to ground, protecting them and extending their lives for a sustainable “green” solution. Installation of the SGR, whether by the motor manufacturer or end user, takes just minutes. Unlike conventional grounding brushes, the ring is maintenance-free and works with virtually no friction or wear for the service life of the motor.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.

Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
