Motors with Internal Bearing Protection Rings

February 9, 2012

Baldor has added 98 new ratings to Baldor•Reliance® Super-E® motors with Internal AEGIS® Bearing Protection Ring, providing end-users with off-the-shelf availability of motors equipped with a pre-installed shaft ground. The additional ratings expands the existing 4 pole line of TEFC & ODP designs through 100 HP and adds a generous offering of 2 and 6 pole models. Other additions include 575V TEFC motors, 1 to 50 HP and TEFC & ODP close-coupled pump motors. The Super-E has the grounding ring factory installed internally on the motor. This internal design minimizes exposure to the outside elements preventing damage by external forces to the grounding ring.
