A-Drive has added the SR..130 range from Servotecnica to its product range. The slip rings are available in two versions and are suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres or under water. In the ST version, they are certified to IP67 protection and are thus suitable for outdoor as well as underwater applications.
In the latter case special materials are used, which do not allow sparking. The slip rings SR 130 EX are approved for Atex II 2GD Exd IIB IIC T5 Gb and for use in explosive atmospheres for gases (Zone 1: II 2G) or dust (Zone 21: II 2D). Accordingly, the robust slip rings can be used, for example, in refineries, oil platforms and other offshore applications as well as power plants.
Both product versions can also be used for fast Ethernet communication in addition to transmitting power and signals. The rotary joints for fieldbus applications with CAN open, Profibus, Decivenet, Ethernet, Ethercat, Profinet and Sercos II and III are tested. Optionally, an absolutely secure high-speed data transmission can be implemented using fiber-optic cables for one or more lines.
The Atex slip rings of the SR series are also very suitable in the pressure-resistant version. For an extended area we are currently working on the type SR180.
