ELECTRO STATIC TECHNOLOGY
AEGIS Shaft Grounding Rings
AEGIS Shaft Grounding Rings have been made standard equipment on the Baldor-Reliance Food Safe line of motors. These rings protect motors by channeling VFD-induced bearing current safely to ground. Continuous circumferential rows of conductive microfibers, embedded securely in the ring’s patented AEGIS FiberLock channel, completely surround the motor shaft and provide millions of discharge points for harmful shaft voltage. This unique design creates the path of least resistance that effectively diverts current away from the bearings to ground. The microfibers themselves are specially engineered for exceptional conductivity and flexibility to minimize wear and prevent breakage. For more information, visit www.est-aegis.com.
