Motor shaft voltage test kit
The AEGIS shaft voltage test kit measures and documents the voltages of motors controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs).
The AEGIS shaft voltage test kit measures and documents the voltages of motors controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs). The kit can test every VFD-controlled motor at a facility to determine whether it is subject to stray shaft voltages great enough to damage bearings. The kit includes a replaceable probe tip with high-density conductive microfibers that ensure continuous contact with a rotating motor shaft. Electro Static Technology manufactures the tip and extension rod with optional magnetic base, while Fluke makes the 10:1 probe and the Fluke 190 Series II ScopeMeter portable oscilloscope that displays and saves the voltage waveform.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
