The new AEGIS shaft-voltage test kit measures and documents damaging voltages induced by variable-frequency drives

The new AEGIS shaft-voltage test kit measures and documents damaging voltages induced by variable-frequency drives. The kit includes a special replaceable probe tip for highly accurate voltage readings on rotating equipment. The tip contains high-density conductive microfibers for continuous contact with a rotating motor shaft.

The kit is a collaboration between EST an d Fluke Corp. EST makes the tip and extension rod, while Fluke makes the 10:1 probe itself and the Fluke 190 Series ScopeMeter portable oscilloscope that displays the voltage waveform and saves the image for reporting.
