The AEGIS SGR conductive microfiber shaft grounding ring is suitable for predictive and preventive maintenance programs on VFD-controlled AC motors and large DC motors. By protecting bearings from electrical damage, the unit extends motor life and prevents bearing noise, downtime, and costly motor repairs/replacements. Unlike conventional shaft grounding brushes, the SGR has conductive microfibers that work with virtually no friction or wear and are unaffected by dirt, grease, or other contaminants. A mounting kit simplifies installation on any NEMA or IEC motor and provides clearance for motors with shaft shoulders, slingers, bearing caps, or end-bell protrusions. Secured with three mounting screws and standoff posts, the entire assembly covers less than ½ in. of the motor shaft.
