Electro Static Technology: Shaft Voltage Test Kit
December 26, 2011
Designed for retrofits, the AEGIS™ shaft voltage test kit makes it easier to measure and document damaging VFD-induced voltages while there is still time to head off bearing damage and equipment downtime. The kit can test every VFD-controlled motor in a whole production plant, office building, mechanical room, or anywhere else VFD-driven motors are operating. The result of a collaboration between the manufacturer and Fluke Corp. and available from both companies, the kit includes a special replaceable probe tip for highly accurate voltage readings on rotating equipment. The tip and extension rod may be held or used with an optional magnetic base. The Fluke 190 Series ScopeMeter portable oscilloscope displays the voltage waveform and saves the image for reporting.
