AEGIS® PRO Series High Current Bearing Protection Ring
Medium Voltage Motors, Generators and Turbines
The AEGIS® PRO Series design provides reliable shaft grounding for medium voltage applications, generators, and turbines to divert harmful shaft voltages to ground and extend bearing life. Install the AEGIS® PRO on the DE and insulate the bearing on the opposite end (NDE) for best results. Large motors and generators often have much higher induced shaft voltages and bearing currents. The six circumferential rows of conductive microfber provide the extra protection for these high current applications.
Generators may experience current surges which can cause electrical arcing in their bearings and equipment. The AEGIS® PRO Rings have a high current capable design and can discharge these currents.
