Proxi-Ring 240W

Features

  • Wireless slip ring
  • Circuits completely friction free
  • Fast and accurate response to load variations
  • Power channel: maximum output current 10 A (total across all channels) at 24 VDC

Description

The Proxi-Ring™ is a standalone electrical device that enables efficient transfer of power and data across an electrical rotary joint referred to as a slip ring, electric swivel, rotary electrical interface, commutator or a collector.

The Proxi-Ring™ is a next generation solution to replace existing mechanical slip rings. It provides a reliable and maintenance free alternative and does not require friction based metal and/or carbon brush contacts to enable power and data transfer.

Input power is transferred inductively using a standard 24 VDC power supply. Up to 10A peak can be drawn from the receiver at 24 VDC.

The Proxi-Ring™ is available as a plug and play modular system which can be used to upgrade slip rings in new or existing equipment.

Benefits

  • Elimination of friction or heating between rotating and stationary circuit contacts
  • Cost effective maintenance free alternative to traditional slip rings
  • Unlimited continuous rotation
  • Corrosion and water proof – immersion rating of IP67
  • Plug and play modular system compatible with existing power supplies and CAN bus communication
  • Transfer power through any non-metallic material including liquids, solids and gases
  • Eliminate unreliable cables and coil cords
  • Solves continuity of delivery and maintenance pain points
  • Simplify implementation/installation processes
  • Create unique competitive advantages in the design, operation and convenience of products
  • Reduce high installation and ongoing maintenance costs
