BGB Engineering Ltd., an electro-mechanical engineering company based in the U.K., has introduced the axial multimode Optilinc system for the slip ring market. The fiber optic rotary joint is ideal for high-speed data transfer on many applications and is primarily designed for the wind turbine industry, according to the company.
Constructed in stainless steel, Optilinc has exceptional durability, which protects the unit from dust and water ingress. Also, it is not influenced by vibration, humidity, heat, magnetism or other typical slip ring disturbances.
The unit can transfer data at a rate of up to 1 GB per second and can be offered with media converters to suit protocols and requirements.
The Optilinc system has been thoroughly developed in BGB's research and development lab and is now being implemented in the design stage for leading wind turbine manufacturers.
