Trolex Engineering have recently introduced the TX4849 Slip Ring to their range.
The Weather Protected Slip Ring is a compact 316L stainless steel unit which has a cover diameter of only 72mm. The unit can house up to 16 rings, rated 12 Amps, 1000V per ring. In addition to electrical passes, the unit can also be combined with a fibre optic rotary joint, both single and multimode options.
Suitable for a variety of applications including ROV’s, winches and seismic surveying, the unit has been design tested to meet IP66 ratings. The TX4849 has precious metal plated rings for low loss signal and is available with up to an M25 tapped entry, or connectors as a cost option.
Trolex Engineering have been designing and manufacturing both explosion protected and weather protected slip rings for over 40 years. From small, low power slip rings such as the TX4849, to large, high power 11kV, 3,500 Amps, the slip rings have been tried and tested in numerous environments.
