Bearing Protection Ring
Company's line of Super-E motors with Internal AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring provides end-users with off-the-shelf availability of motors equipped with a pre-installed shaft ground. The addition of 98 ratings expands the existing 4 pole line of TEFC & ODP designs through 100 HP and adds an offering of 2 and 6 pole models, as well. While most shaft ground applications utilize a shaft ground on the outside of the motor, these units have the grounding ring factory installed internally on the motor. This internal design minimizes exposure to the outside elements and keeps the grounding ring from being damaged by external forces. Applications include heating, ventilation and air conditioning blower and fan motors, pump motors, and other general purpose applications using an adjustable speed drive.
