Baldor’s Super-E® Motor with the AEGIS™ Shaft Grounding Ring Named Category Winner in EC&M Product of the Year Competition

EC&M (Electrical Construction and Maintenance) Magazine holds an annual product of the year competition to honor excellence in new product development in the electrical industry. This year a panel of electrical engineers, contractors, and plant personnel, selected the Baldor-Reliance® Super-E Motor with the AEGIS Shaft Ground Ring, as the top product in the motors, drives and motor controls category.

The motor, with AEGIS shaft grounding ring mounted inside, is ideal for users looking for a way to prevent bearing damage caused by adjustable speed drive-induced currents. While most shaft ground applications utilize a shaft ground on the outside of the motor, the Baldor-Reliance Super-E has the grounding ring uniquely installed internally on the motor. This internal design minimizes exposure to the outside elements and also keeps the ground from being exposed to external forces that might damage the grounding ring.

Program judges made their selection based on how this innovative product helped electrical professionals do their jobs more efficiently and effectively.
