BGB can supply power and data slip rings combined with a fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ) when high data rate transfer is necessary. These custom designed products include the reliable and cost effective BGB metal graphite brush systems combined with the BGB Optilink fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ).

As well as stand alone media converters and WDMs, BGB can build all Optilinc products into bespoke slip ring solutions incorporating connections to suit each individual requirement.

Data transfer would not be susceptible to electromagnet interference from high frequencies. Slip ring assemblies with Optilinc for data would also not be susceptible through data loss due to low resistance contact on an in-frequently used low power data ring.

Product Description

Some benefits of this FORJ technology combination include:

  • Minimal wired connections
  • All encased in an IP rated enclosure
  • Easily serviced
  • Complete packaged solution
  • Adaptable to all environmental conditions
  • Tried and tested in the wind industry
  • Immune to all forms of electrical interference (Optilinc FORJ)
  • Minimal torque
  • Future proof – if bandwidth needs increasing in future, electronic components can be changed easily

Applications include:

  • Hoists and winches
  • ROV’s
  • Packaging machinery
  • Assembly machinery
  • Wind turbine pitch control

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...
