BGB Technology Lightning Brush holders are robust units that are designed to dissipate lightning energy and thus defend critical components (typically main shaft and yaw bearings).

The 120 amp brush holders, when used as part of a total lightning and surge protection system, play a very important role in the protection of buildings, structures and equipment against direct lightning strikes.

Arc propagation brackets are also available to act as backup for overload conditions.

A low impedance path is created through the rotational interface (hub to nacelle) from the lightning protection conductor to the ground, therefore protecting the main bearing.

How Much Do Slip Rings Used in Wind Turbines Typically Cost?

A wind turbine converts kinetic energy into electrical energy by using the wind to turn a set of rotor blades around a central axis. This design requires a slip ring, which transmits an electrical current from a stationary to a rotating structure. The slip rings used in wind turbines are typically customized for each turbine, so a slip ring’s cost … Read More...

Custom Slip Rings For the Wind Industry

Wind turbines, formerly called windmills, work by converting energy from wind into mechanical power. This energy can be used to power homes, schools, office buildings and more or used to complete a task such as pumping water from a well. It can fully power or supplement, conventional forms of energy. Benefits Include: Wind is a clean, … Read More...

How Much Do Slip Rings Typically Cost?

Nearly every industry uses slip rings, and many companies within those industries do as well. Slip rings are integral pieces of equipment without which much of our heavy machinery and mechanical and electronic devices wouldn’t work. A slip ring is an electro-mechanical device or piece of equipment that works within machinery and transfers power … Read More...
