Slip-ring motors are used in applications requiring high starting torque or low starting current. These motors provide maximum availability, and are especially recommended for heavy load inertia applications like mill drives or situations where network conditions are weak. Other typical use applications for slip-ring motors are e.g. cement plants, mines and water works.
Combinent produces slip rings for large motors and generators in a small series and also in quantity of just one piece at a time.
Slip rings are used in wind mills in wind turbine generators and for pitch control. Combinent has delivered slip rings for the wind turbine generators since late 90’s. Combinent slip rings are used mainly in 2 – 2.5MW wind turbines.
