Trolex Engineering have recently expanded the TX4700 Series of products to allow the TX4705 and TX4707 to be used directly with the TX3700/3701 Exd Connectors.
The slip rings are certified for use in ATEX and IECEx hazardous areas with an ambient temperature of -20°C to +55°C, allowing direct connection using plug-and-play technology.
Fitted with the connectors, the TX4705 has a maximum current throughput of 100 Amps, allowing up to 20 Amps/ring. The TX4707 has a maximum current throughput of 16 Amps, fitted with 2 x 8 Amp Rings. The voltage of the units is governed by the certification of the connectors. If fitted with TX3700 Connectors the voltage is limited to 240Vac/300Vdc, or fitted with TX3701 Connectors, the voltage is limited to 1500Vac/2000Vdc.
Trolex Engineering have been designing and manufacturing both explosion protected and weather protected slip rings for over 40 years. From small, low power slip ring units, through to large, high power slip rings; tried and tested in a range of arduous environments, offering both standard and bespoke products to suit any application.
