The AEGIS™ SGR Bearing Protection Ring protects the bearings of VFD-driven motors from electrical damage, and the new all-inclusive AEGIS™ Universal Mounting Kit (U-Kit) simplifies its mounting on virtually any AC motor shaft. The kit includes the proven AEGIS™ grounding ring and mounting hardware for most motor designs. Ordered based on the NEMA “u” shaft diameter, the kit contains the correct size ring for the motor and four styles of brackets with bolts and lock washers that can be used in various configurations, depending on the contours of the motor’s end bracket. Ideal for HVAC service contractors, motor repair shops, plant maintenance departments, and original equipment manufacturers, the ring prevents electrical “fluting” damage in the bearing, bearing noise, costly motor repairs/replacements, and downtime by safely channeling VFD-induced bearing currents to ground. To simplify the installation of the ring on NEMA frame motors, the brackets in the U-Kit may be mounted on the motor either by drilling and tapping small holes or using AEGIS™ Conductive Epoxy.
