Specially designed for high-current applications, the AEGIS iPRO Bearing Protection Ring protects generators, turbines, and medium-voltage motors against electrical bearing damage by safely channeling harmful voltages to ground. It is available in a range of sizes to accommodate generator/motor shafts up to 30 inches in diameter. To facilitate field retrofits, the iPRO split-ring comes in mating halves that simplify installation around the shafts of coupled equipment.
