AEGIS® Bearing Protection for VFD AC Motors
We offer AEGIS® shaft grounding brushes which provide effective electrical protection of bearings in variable speed AC motors
The new AEGIS® SGR Conductive MicroFiber™ shaft grounding brush prevents electrical damage to motor bearings by safely channelling harmful shaft currents to ground.
