Optilinc Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ)

Optilinc Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ)

The BGB Optilinc system has been produced to revolutionize the slip ring market. Optilinc is the first of the new generation of contactless slip rings to be produced by BGB Engineering Ltd. The fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ) is ideal for high speed data-transfer on many applications.

Constructed in stainless steel, Optilinc has exceptional durability protecting the unit from dust and water ingress to IP68 and is not influenced by vibration, humidity, heat, magnetism or other typical disturbances. Optilinc is now available with either ST or Deutsch RSC TM connectors.

The Optilinc Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ) has been thoroughly developed in BGB’s R&D Lab and is now being implemented in the design stage of leading wind turbine manufacturers and other high speed data transfer applications.

The Axial Multimode and Singlemode Fibre Optic Rotary Joints have been rigorously tested by Deutsch UK Ltd to EN2591-601, (Aerospace series – Elements of electrical and optical connection Part 601: Optical elements – Insertion loss) and to EIA standards.

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...
