Wind Industry Profile of

Wind Turbine Rotary Data and Power Solutions

Wind turbines require delivery of power and data signals to the rotating hub by a reliable slip ring assembly. These high-performance units must operate continuously in harsh environments, often in remote locations, where regular maintenance and monitoring are difficult and expensive. Moog provides rotary products that are designed to operate reliably in these rugged environments.

The most common use for slip rings is to provide electrical signals and power for blade pitch control systems. Moog provides solutions for both electric and hydraulic systems and can integrate position feedback devices such as encoders as well as fluid swivels, fiber optic rotary joints, and electronics such as media converters and multiplexers.

Moog’s slip ring solutions designed for the demanding wind turbine environment incorporate the latest design technology, and product features are based on years of proven performance in numerous demanding applications. These wind power solutions have standard, flexible configurations that allow quick configuration to meet each customer’s unique set of requirements. The use of standard pre-engineered modules allows cost effective, field-proven and yet customized solutions.

Moog’s low maintenance slip rings utilize several reliable contact material technologies allowing our engineers to select the optimum material combination for every application. Robust power and low noise data transfer are features of Moog’s reliable slip ring assemblies.
