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.

Four Common Problems With Fiber Optic Rotary Joints

A slip ring is an electromechanical device that transmits electrical current between a stationary and rotating structure. A Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ) is the contactless optical equivalent of a slip ring, since it transmits an uninterrupted optical signal as it rotates. FORJs are widely used in many applications, including remotely operated … Read More...

Slip Rings In Amusement Park Rides

Summer is when people head out to their favorite amusement park to enjoy everything from the classic carousel to the biggest roller coasters. Many of the best rides incorporate an impressive light display while spinning and turning at the same time. But you don’t see electrical outlets or wires hanging off the sides of the ride – so what makes … Read More...

Slip Ring Maintenance

The maintenance requirements of slip rings are highly dependent upon application, especially the frequency of rotations and physical environment. For example, a crane only needs to turn occasionally, even when it’s in operation. The entire crane may therefore reach the end of its service life before slip rings require their much scheduled … Read More...
