New Slip Rings - Ethernet Series

Nuovi Slip Rings - Serie Ethernet
Martedì, 26 Luglio 2016
Our challenge here at Servotecnica is anticipating our customers’ needs and being ready for new requests.
Here are the ready solutions for electrical slip rings that can transfer Ethernet-based protocols like EtherNet/IP, ProfiNet, EtherCAT, Sercos III, PowerLink.
The new generation of SVTS A Series Slip Rings in Capsule version and the new series of SVTS C05 Series slip rings with through-hole are the response to the need to bring these types of transmissions to high frequency rotation. This is made possible by gold-gold technology - using, both for brushes and rings, a coating of the 2 elements in gold and to the special inner structure designed to minimise disturbances and coupling.
Our Slip Rings can operate with 100BaseT or 1000BaseT Ethernet at speeds of 100 MB/s and 1 GB/s, respectively. That's why our slip rings with E1M option use, for the 100 BASE-T solution, two twisted and shielded pairs with category CAT5E cables while, with the E1G option for Gigabit Ethernet transmissions, they use four twisted and shielded pairs in category CAT6A.
Thanks to the gold-gold technology, we can provide both digital and analogue signal circuits as well as power circuits in the same slip ring. There are up to 56 circuits in the SVTS A Series with 2, 6 and 8A currents and with voltages up to 240 VDC/AC. Being very small in diameter, they have a life of around 107 revolutions.
The SVTS C05 Series has a 38.1 mm through-hole with the opportunity to reach up to 48 2A signal circuits and 15A for power circuits, with voltages up to 600 VDC/AC; multi-strand brush technology also allows for a duration of around 8x107 revolutions.
The customisation possibilities are countless, from cable length to IP51 degree of protection up to IP65 or even IP67, from the ring body materials in ABS plastic or metal to the option of integrating both the electric ring and the fluid joint into a single element to 1 or more passages for liquids and gases, with the particularity of being able to simultaneously transmit power and electrical signals, liquids and gases, as well as optical signals via fibre.
Operating temperatures can also be a problem: hence solutions available that extend the operating temperature upwards or downwards.
Finally, explosion proof versions with ATEX certification are available.
