Are you experiencing problems with your Slip Rings & FORJ’s?... Paying too much for parts? Waiting on units to arrive? Not adaptable enough? Trouble transferring high data rates? ...


Fibre Optic Rotary Joints (FORJ’s) are ideal for applications such as Tethered Drones or UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), and other remotely operated vehicles (ROV’s). Facilitating the feedback of vital communications to ROVs and tethered drone application’s, BGB’s FORJ and slip ring technology provides reliable solutions for those hard-to-reach places. BGB can help you solve your data transfer problems, or provide you with a one-stop-shop for any rotary solutions; including slip rings, cable management or brush technology. As humanity further explores the depths and heights and we install wind turbines in the seabed and capture images of revolution in the streets, BGB facilitates the transfer of high quality and reliable imaging that benefits the pilot and the engineer in navigating these extreme forefronts.

FORJ’s in Tethered Drones :

A Fibre Optic Rotary Joint can often be found in the aluminium tube (used as a shaft for the winch system) to transmit large video or data to the main hub via the umbilical.

Available in Singlemode or Multimode , BGB’s range of FORJ’s

Most common use for ROV’s & Tethered Drones:

and Slip Rings cover most requirements for signal and data transfer through rotary applications.
