POY Finalist: Shaft voltage test kit

Finalist in Electric Motors and Drives in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition

By Edited by Chris Vavra, Plant Engineering November 1, 2011

Fans and pumps of commercial HVAC systems, conveyors of industrial production lines, and motors controlled by variable frequency drives are vulnerable to electrical bearing damage.

The Aegis Shaft Voltage Test Kit makes it easier for maintenance departments to measure and document damaging VFD-induced voltages before bearing damage and equipment downtime occur. Because the kit can test every VFD-controlled motor in a production plant or mechanical room, it is ideal for maintenance personnel and testing contractors who need to determine whether a motor is subject to stray shaft voltages large enough to harm bearings.
