During 2015, Trolex Engineering developed 4 new products covering a range of applications including winches, cranes and FPSO’s.
The TX4707 was the first to be added to our range. Intended for space-limited winch applications, the slip ring is only 95mm long in total, with a 53mm cover length, containing 2 rings rated at 8 Amps/2000V per ring. Conforming to the requirements of both ATEX and IECEx standards, the unit is capable of operating in a wide range of temperatures, from -40°C to +60°C, to suit the application.
Next up, was our TX4714. This slip ring is intended for smaller crane applications where only a small number of power and signal rings are required. The maximum supply voltage per ring is 100 Amps/750V, with a maximum throughput current of 420A (excluding earths and neutrals). Again, this slip ring conforms to the requirements of both ATEX and IECEx standards, and can be used for power, signal and I.S. circuits.
The next slip ring to be added to our range was again for crane applications. The TX4816 slip ring is a weather-protected, is individually rated up to 770V/100 Amps and may be used for power, signal and I.S. circuits, with a maximum total throughput of 1166 Amps.
Last but not least, the TX4789 Slip Ring was developed for use on the swivel stack of an FPSO. The slip ring contains 40 slip ring circuits, rated up to 500V ac/250 Amps, with a 10 Amp maximum current on each individual ring circuit. The unit conforms to the requirements of IECEx standards, and is capable of operating in temperatures of -20°C to +50°C.
