current insulation deep groove ball bearings feature an electrically insulating coating on the outside surfaces of either the inner or outer bearing ring. This keeps stray electric currents from passing through the bearings, protecting them against electrical erosion damage and helping prevent lubricant degradation resulting from electric current discharge. As with deep groove ball bearings generally, they are particularly versatile, have low friction and are optimized for low noise and low vibration, which enables high rotational speeds. They accommodate radial and axial loads in both directions, are easy to mount, and require less maintenance than many other bearing types.
