Measure Motor Shaft Voltage

Thu, 11/17/2011 - 12:19pm

AEGIS™ Shaft Voltage Test KitElectro Static Technology’s new AEGIS Shaft Voltage Test Kit makes it easier than ever to measure and document damaging VFD-induced voltages, while there is still time to stop bearing damage and equipment downtime. According to the company, the kit:

  • Can test every VFD-controlled motor in a production plant, office building, mechanical room, or anywhere else where VFD-driven motors are operating.
  • Provides a powerful tool for maintenance personnel, testing contractors, and anyone who needs to determine and convince others that a motor is or is not subject to stray shaft voltages great enough to harm motor bearings. 
  • Is the result of a collaboration between Electro Static Technology (EST) and Fluke Corp., and is available from both companies.
  • Includes a special replaceable probe tip, which contains high-density conductive microfibers that ensure continuous contact with a rotating motor shaft for highly-accurate voltage readings on rotating equipment.
  • Extends motor life by diverting shaft currents safely to ground, thus ensuring the reliable, long-term operation of the VFD-driven motor system and locking in energy savings to make the system sustainable and truly “green.”
