Electro Static's Split-Ring AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring

To simplify the protection of bearings in VFD-driven motors, Electro Static Technology has introduced the Split-Ring AEGIS(TM) Bearing Protection Ring with Conductive Epoxy Mounting. Developed for fast, easy field installation without detaching coupled equipment, the new Split-Ring kit offers long-term protection of ac motor bearings from electrical damage, safely channeling VFD-induced bearing currents to ground. The unit has a 360-degree circumferential inner ring of conductive microfibers permanently secured in place by the patented AEGIS FiberLock(TM) channel. The FiberLock channel design not only prevents the microfiber brushes from loosening or falling out, but also protects them from breakage.

Unlike conventional shaft grounding brushes, the ring is maintenance-free and lasts for the life of the motor. It works with virtually no friction or wear, regardless of motor rpm, and is unaffected by dirt, grease or other contaminants.
