AEGIS® technology is designed for use when variable frequency drives (VFDs) are used to control electric motors. The VFD induces destructive voltages on the motor shaft which discharge through the motor bearings or bearings in attached equipment. These discharges cause fusion craters on the bearing race walls. Over time, this can lead to noise, vibration, bearing failure, and catastrophic motor failure.

The AEGIS® SGR shaft grounding ring channels these harmful VFD-induced shaft currents safely to ground.  Unlike conventional grounding brushes, the SGR is maintenance-free and works with virtually no friction or wear for the service life of the motor.

Electro Static Technology is the global leader in the elimination and/or mitigation of induced electrical charges on rotating and moving surfaces. Electro Static Technology manufactures the patented technology AEGIS® SGR shaft-grounding ring for the electric motors and generators and is a division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW), a $18 billion diversified manufacturing company with operations in 44 countries.
