There is a growing need for faster, more accurate data and power transmission via rotary joints for automation applications. SPINNER is now offering a new technology to accomplish this: contactless rotating interfaces based on inductive and electronic coupling.
For data transmission, contactless electronic data interfaces are used instead of slip rings. This approach permits transmission rates of up to 1 Gbit/s in Ethernet-based bus systems, also at very fast rotational speeds. 100 Mbit/s real-time feature enables transmission of various, deterministic bus protocols. This paves the way for completely new approaches in automation technology.
Power is transmitted via an inductive system, either by itself or together with data.
A further advantage of these contactless data interfaces is that they are non-wearing and maintenance-free. This avoids the downtimes and costs caused by repairs and servicing. Transmission errors and distortions as a result of micro-interruptions and line reflections are also very effectively prevented, which reduces abnormal data packets and cycle times.

The typical applications include flatness measuring rolls in aluminum rolling mills, bottling lines, and cable braiding machines: situations involving very fast rotation that can cause unreliable slip rings to fail quickly.
