Cobham’s slip ring product line is designed for use in offshore wind energy production and onshore wind projects. Cobham’s slip rings are GE OEM approved, and the company has delivered more than 70,000 pitch slip rings to turbine OEM manufacturers. The slip rings are hardy products that have a durable design. This quality design means that they are not subject to mechanical failures or fatigue. Additionally, you’ll have a lower cost of maintenance and a lower ownership cost. The slip rings belong to a line of products called contactless electronics, which are designed to transmit data in real-time and therefore enable continuous operations. The contactless slip rings allow for highly efficient data transfer over shorter distances. Along with expediting data transfer, contactless slip rings reduce heat and friction between stationary and rotating components, which in turn improves their lifespan and reduces the risk of premature wear. The slip rings also have a strong seal design that keeps oil from getting into the system. Their brushes will last up to 10 years, and to date, there have not been any brush failures reported on GE applications. The plug-and-play design on the products also translates to faster installation and less system downtime.
There are many great products available at Kurz Wind from Cobham to meet a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. You can find the company’s products on the Kurz website, where you can order products on a large or small scale depending on your needs. If you have any questions about the line of products available or how they can help with your system operations, don’t hesitate to ask.
