A split-ring version of the Aegis SGR Bearing Protection Ring now is available in halves for easy field installation with little or no equipment disassembly. For variable frequency drive AC and DC motors, the SGR Split Ring protects bearings from electrical damage by channeling currents to ground. Conductive microfibers in the ring provide the path of least resistance, allowing these shaft currents to discharge safely to the motor frame. Microfibers also have very low friction, which also helps to prevent noise. Mounting hardware sizes can accommodate motor shafts up to 6" in diameter and larger rings can be specially ordered.
