Selecting A Slip Ring
There are three important parameters that must be considered when incorporating a slip ring in an Ethernet communication line: insertion loss, return loss and crosstalk. These parameters establish the signal to noise ratio of the transmission line and ultimately the Bit Error Rate (BER).
As the world’s leading manufacturer of slip rings, Moog slip rings are uniquely suited for critical Ethernet applications. Founded over 65 years ago, the company has developed products for critical applications in military, space, medical and industrial environments. Our industrial slip ring products are based on our years of material and design experience and provide unrivaled contact technologies.
To respond to market demand for engineered Ethernet solutions, Moog has developed an extensive line of Ethernet products based on our popular capsule and through-bore products.
