Proxi-Ring 480W

Features

  • Eliminate unreliable slip rings and associated maintenance
  • Transfer power through any non metallic material including liquids, solids and gases
  • Dual channels provide 480W with no redundancy OR 240W with dual redundancy
  • 100% fault tolerant for power in dual redundancy mode
  • Correct slow voltage input to provide ±1% output regulation
  • High speed communication interface
  • Plug and play system compatible with existing power supplies and communication standards

Description

The Proxi-Ring is a standalone electrical device that enables transfer of power and data across any non-metallic material – in essence a wireless slip ring.

The Proxi-Ring PR480-T021 is a next generation solution to eliminate unreliable cables, coil cords, slip rings and other connections. It provides a reliable and maintenance free alternative for 360 degree rotation or stationary power and data systems.

Input power is transferred inductively. A standard power supply can be used to power the PR480-T021 ST power transmitter. The system operates using 24VDC and can provide up to 20A peak from the PR480-T021 SR power receiver. The output voltage is held within a tight 5% tolerance.

The integrated wireless communication system acts as an invisible link and programming is not required — simply cut the cable and place the PR480-T021 in the middle — your controllers will not know any different enabling true wireless freedom.
