Self contained slip rings provide very low stack height along with a through bore for use with center shafts, rotary joints, optics and any other axial assembly. Slip ring bodies may be supplied in stainless steel, anodized aluminum, acetyl-copolymer or other composite materials. Integral ball bearings provide for smooth mechanical operation along with maintaining correct alignment of the slip ring conductors. Multiple brush contact points are used on each ring conductor to provide extremely low dynamic noise for clean signal quality along with high reliability operation over a long product life time.
Miniature slip rings utilize conductor rings on 1mm centers to minimize diameter and height. Signal and power conductors can be combined on the same miniature slip ring to provide full function to the rotating part of the unit. Uses include video pan & tilt, robotic joints, data channels in rotary fluid couplings, and any other application where minimum component size is essential.
Compact slip rings with 1 mm pitch conductor rings are normally for lower RPM operation or intermittent higher speeds such as on a servo motor. Miniature slip rings can accommodate 3 Amps power typically and often are supplied up to 10 Amp power capacity by utilizing two or more track spaces for each power channel. Typical miniature slip ring sets are in the range of 5 to 30 conductors that combine both power and data channels.
