Inpro/Seal Introduces Smart Shaft Grounding

Oct. 23, 2015
Smart Shaft Grounding product portfolio from Inpro/Seal provides comprehensive bearing protection.

The Smart Shaft Grounding product portfolio, consisting of the Smart CDR, Smart MGS and Smart Ground Monitor, provides permanent protection from conduction-inhibiting shaft oxidation and offers continuous monitoring and feedback of shaft grounding performance. The Smart MGS integrates Current Diverter Ring technology and Inpro/Seal’s VBXX Bearing Isolator to protect against contamination ingress and lubrication loss as well as stray currents. Isolated conductive filaments and a zero-maintenance conductive bronze rotor provide premium connectivity in harsh conditions.

The Smart Ground Monitor alerts users in real time of non-optimal contact between the filaments and shaft. Contact is measured through the Smart Terminal that comes standard on every Smart CDR and Smart MGS. Smart Shaft Grounding solutions meet NEMA MG1 and CSI 23 05 13 specifications and are available in standard sizes or custom engineered solutions.
