Kit helps determine vulnerability of VFD-controlled motors.

The new AEGIS Shaft Voltage Test Kit is said to make it easier than ever to measure and document damaging VFD-induced voltages while there is still time to head off bearing damage and equipment downtime. Because the kit is asserted to be able to test every VFD-controlled motor in a whole production plant, office building, mechanical room, or anywhere else VFD-driven motors are operating, it provides a desirable tool for anyone who needs to determine and convince others that a motor is or is not subject to stray shaft voltages great enough to harm motor bearings. The result of a collaboration between Electro Static Technology (EST) and Fluke Corporation and available from both companies, the kit includes a special replaceable probe tip for highly accurate voltage readings on rotating equipment. Designed by EST, this tip contains high-density conductive microfibers that ensure continuous contact with a rotating motor shaft.
