The Orbex Group, a leading manufacturer of high-performance electric motors and slip rings, introduces standard slip rings with an IP65 protection rating, providing washdown tolerance in many food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturing applications.
Available immediately with short lead times, these washdown-ready slip rings feature stainless steel or aluminum housings, while their IP65-rated, sealed design enhances component protection in demanding environments. They also offer flexible mounting options with through-hole diameters ranging from 25 to 100 millimeters, or capsule style when a through-hole is not required, facilitating installation.
These slip rings support a wide range of standard industrial network protocols, such as Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, Profibus and more. And, their modular and flexible design enables engineers to easily configure a solution to better fit customer needs.
Orbex Group, a U.S.-based supplier of slip rings and electric motors, has introduced two new custom products to its offering of precision motion solutions. These custom flat brushless DC (BLDC) motors provide smooth motion, high precision and excellent power density, as well as an integral gear reducer in a compact package.
