Slip rings for a wide variety of industrial applications come from Deublin Co., Waukegan, Ill. The devices are easily configured for both power connections and signal connections. The signal portion of the slip rings is compatible with Ethernet, Profinet, RS-232, RS-485, RS-422, CAN as well as generic analog or digital sensing and 24V control signals.
Slip rings are well suited for a variety of demanding applications such as wind turbines, robotics, industrial machinery (textile, bottling, and packaging for example), test equipment, commercial displays, crane and hoist controls just to name a few. Deublin Company has used the same high quality standards in the development of the new Slip Ring product line as we have established in our rotary union designs for over 60 years.
The electrical device allows transmitting 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. Typically, a slip ring is comprised of a graphite or precious metal brush, which contacts the outside diameter of a rotating metal ring. As the ring turns, electrical current or signal is conducted through the stationary brush to the metal ring making the connection. Additional ring/brush assemblies are stacked along the rotating axis if more than one electrical circuit is needed. A new brochure, Catalog SR084 US, is available along with a Request for Quote form that assists in specifying a slip ring.
