AEGIS® Bearing Protection - Why Shaft Grounding?


AEGIS-OSC-9100 Setup and Parameters




The following pages describe the settings and parameters we use to capture shaft voltages. For ease of use, the factory settings are preset for shaft voltage measurements.

To demonstrate, we will use the AEGIS-OSC-9100 Shaft Voltage Tester™ - a 2 channel - 100 MHz Digital Oscilloscope designed to easily capture shaft voltage measurements on operating equipment. Refer to your owner’s manual or quick start for detailed instructions and explanations of other advanced functions.

The AEGIS® Shaft Voltage Tester™ may be reset to factory settings at any time using the procedure below.
