WIND POWER CARBON BRUSHES
Carbex supplies carbon brush grades for pitch systems. Pitch systems should only be equipped with one quality that can handle both power and signal transmission. It is therefore of the utmost importance that the selected brush quality is capable of operation with and without power, as well as attenuating the noise level, as the carbon brush is for signal transmission. Carbex selected grades are based on a fine film formation even when the currents are low warranting minimal brush wear. Carbex can also offer complete systems, i.e. slip rings, brush holders and carbon brushes which are adapted for maximum performance and hassle-free operation.
Our development department has, among others, developed an innovative brush holder that generates a longer service life for pitching. The carbon brushes mounted on the brush holder have a wear length of no less than 22mm!
The system uses constant force springs to give the same brush pressure throughout the service life of the carbon brush. This solution can be used for both power and signal transmission. Silver grade carbon brushes should be used for signal transmission which generate low noise levels and a transmission speed up to 100 base-T.
The system can easily be modified for the desired number of channels and the power and signal transmission tracks can also be freely chosen.
