Contactless downloading of VARAN Packets to a Rotating Axis
Conductix-Wampfler makes it possible
Using the Ether slip ring (IndEth100) and the Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ) from Conductix-Wampfler, VARAN packets can now be loaded to/from a rotating axis. The Ethernet slip ring is thereby base on a Gold-on-Gold sliding contact. With help from a media converter, the VARAN packets are sent to the FORJ over a plastic fiberglass line. The FORG enables the contactless transfer of VARAN packets using optical energy. Through the use of optical, contactless technology, data can be reliably exchanged in a harsh industrial environment without wear problems.
