Pluggable slip ring coupling

(PresseBox) (Ostseebad Rerik, ) W2E continues the Plug & Play concept forcefully. The innovative new product was designed in cooperation with HARTING. The slip ring is double-sided pluggable. The slip ring cou-pling is featuring a standardised electrical interface with two time of 4-wire-busses, 24 control signals and a three-phase power supply line. A thermal barrier is integrated. The exchange of the slip ring is possible without contact to the Pitch System and without any stripping of ca-bles. Preventive maintenance as well as repair could be realised without standstill of the tur-bine.
