The company says its slip rings are optimized with material configurations tested and proven for hundreds of millions of cycles, which translates into many years of trouble-free operation with unsurpassed performance, significantly reducing down-time and maintenance costs.
The electrical slip rings feature flexible engineering to support unique requirements and allow for easy replacement of existing slip ring brands by the end user. DEUBLIN designs slip rings to a variety of EMI, operating temperatures, storage temperatures, acceleration, mechanical vibration, and mechanical shock requirements as required by the customer application. The company’s rotary union and slip ring combinations have a unique plug-and-play configuration to reduce installation and maintenance time. Other design innovations include slip rings that meet requirements such as RF shielding, mixed signal handling, high frequency impedance matching, reduced temperature generation, and miniaturization.
A slip ring allows transmitting power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. Also called a rotary electrical joint, collector, or electric swivel, a slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent, or continuous rotation while transmitting power, or data, or both. Typically, it is compromised of a graphite or metal contact brush which rubs on the outside diameter of a rotating metal ring. As the slip ring turns, the electrical current or signal is conducted through the stationary brush to the metal ring making the connection. A new Electrical Slip Ring brochure is available (#SR1104 US), that replaces the SR102 US.
