AEGIS Shaft Voltage Tester: a Single Package

L&S Electric has an excellent relationship with Electro Static Technology, the creators of the AEGIS® shaft grounding ring. One aspect of preventing shaft voltage is the ability to measure that voltage. With that in mind, I'd like to introduce the AEGIS Shaft Voltage Tester™. Everything You Need to Measure Motor Shaft Voltages in a Single Package AEGIS Shaft Voltage Tester is a CAT II/III digital oscilloscope that includes everything you need to test voltage levels on the spinning s

AEGIS Ball Bearing Protection Working in Paper Mill

As you know, a popular, and effective, way to operate and control electric motors is through a variable frequency drive (VFD). VFDs provide a long list of benefits, yet have a few drawbacks. Among them shaft currents, which can lead to ball bearing failure. Preventing shaft currents is the job of an AEGIS grounding ring. The effectiveness of the AEGIS ring is on display at a Wisconsin paper mill and is the focus of an excellent white paper authored by the fine folks at Electro Static Techno
