A slip ring is a component for transmission of power and data signals to a freely rotating unit such as a radar aerial or the rotor blades of a wind turbine. Also called a slip ring device, rotary electrical joint, collector, or electric swivel, a slip ring can be used in any mechanical device that requires free rotation while transmitting power or electrical data signals. Slip rings can improve the performance and simplify the design of many applications.
The Hollow shaft X Series uses multiple contact point technology, allowing for low contact electric resistance between brushes and ring. This reduces electrical noise and the slip ring gets a longer lifetime.
We can also offer custom designs. As a customer you have the possibility to specify the slip ring to comply with your needs. We can also offer hybrid units, for example a combined slip ring and fiber optic rotary joint, integrated into one small housing.
Other options we can offer
- Inclusion of coax and miniature data bus cables
- Harnessing of lead wires into chosen crimps and connectors
