Kuebler Group SR120 and SR160 slip rings improve Ethernet transmission in industrial environments.
The Kuebler Group announced its SR120 and SR160 slip rings designed for reliable Ethernet transmission in industrial environments. The company’s Slip Ring SR120 features a three-chamber system and shield to enable parallel Ethernet transmission up to 100 Mbps. The component’s features include contact technology that achieves service life up to 500 million revolutions and a modular structure that can be expanded up to 20 channels. The Slip Ring SR160 features an integrated Sendix Encoder that provides contactless Ethernet transmission—either two channels at 100 Mbps multiplexed or one channel at 1 Gbps. Like the SR120, this system offers parallel transmission of load, signal and data, as well as media flow in air or hydraulic models. It can even transmit video signals.
