Baldor Super-E Motor is available with AEGIS Shaft Grounding Ring, which protects VFD-controlled motors by channeling harmful currents safely to ground, extending motor life and improving reliability. Unlike conventional grounding brushes, the ring is maintenance-free and works with little friction or wear. The product is available in 26 models, ranging from 1 to 50 hp, 143T to 326T, with totally enclosed, fan-cooled (TEFC) or open, drip-proof (ODP) enclosures for heating, ventilation and air conditioning blower and fan motors, pump motors, and other general-purpose applications using an adjustable speed drive. This inverter-ready motor is available for custom speeds, hp ratings, and designs.
