AEGIS® Bearing Protection - Why Shaft Grounding?


Best Practices

The AEGIS® Ring conducts harmful shaft voltage discharge currents away from the bearings to ground. These currents travel from the shaft, through the conductive microfibers, through the housing of the ring, through the hardware (or conductive epoxy) used to attach the ring to the motor, to ground. All paths must be conductive.

Note: Overspray on end bracket must be removed to
ensure a conductive path to ground. Clean all fits.


Application notes are intended as general guidance to assist with proper application of AEGIS® Bearing Protection Ring to protect motor bearings.
