The Current Transmission business unit at Schunk Graphite Technology, Booth 10342, produces flexible power connections and holders for manufacturers of wind turbine electrical equipment and transformer substations. Among that equipment are brush yokes and carbon brushes, their holders, flexible current connections, brush rockers, and more.
Carbon brushes have a high percent of metal to provide near perfect current transmission, even under the toughest operating conditions. Different models of brush holders and rockers are available along with the capability for custom made and specialized products. Lastly, all brush rocker components are manufactured in accordance with specific assembly templates. This ensures an exact fit of brush to collector.

A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent or continuous rotation while transmitting power and / or data. It can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints.
Also called rotary electrical interfaces, rotating electrical connectors, collectors, swivels, or electrical rotary joints, these rings are commonly found in slip ring motors, electrical generators for alternating current (AC) systems and alternators and in packaging machinery, cable reels, and wind turbines. They can be used on any rotating object to transfer power, control circuits, or analog or digital signals including data such as those found on aerodrome beacons, rotating tanks, power shovels, radio telescopes or heliostats.
A slip ring (in electrical engineering terms) is a method of making an electrical connection through a rotating assembly. Formally, it is an electric transmission device that allows energy flow between two electrical rotating parts, such as in a motor.
