PowerbyProxi presents: “Powering Sensors in Hostile Environments”
Alternative & Renewable Energy Open
April 27th 3:30 – 4:30 pm EDT
FREE Online Event Sponsored by GlobalSpec
April 27, 2011 – Power-by-Proxi invites you to attend a free online seminar, featuring Fady Mishriki, CEO/Business Development & Co-founder who will present “Powering Sensors in Hostile Environments”.
In this presentation, attendees will learn of a contactless slip ring that provides wireless power and data to pitch control systems in wind turbines. This improves wind turbine efficiency by reducing the cost of maintaining and replacing existing mechanical slip rings and their carbon brushes, especially in wet, dirty environments, where rotational movement is involved, and power cables and physical connectors are problematic, expensive, and unreliable. Power transfer without wires or frictional contact ensures sensor operation in hard-to-reach locations. Replacing traditional wiring harnesses with wireless power transmitters and receivers ensures reliable sensor operation in hostile environments, in applications involving rotational movement, and in hard-to-reach locations.
- Learn how to power sensors across pivoting and rotating joints
- Understand how wireless power overcomes the constraints of hard-wired or battery-based applications
- Discover a contactless slip ring for delivering power and data to wind turbines
