A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, continuous rotation while transferring power and/or data from a stationary to a rotating structure. A slip ring is also called a rotary electrical interface, collector, swivel or a rotary joint. A slip ring can improve system performance by simplifying operations and eliminating damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints. The 1-1/2 inch unobstructed through-bore provides routing space for hydraulics, pneumatics or for a concentric shaft mount.
The AC6200 slip ring with through bores uses fiber brush technology which offers several advantages over conventional slip ring contacts including multiple points of contact per brush bundle, low contact force per fiber and low contact wear rates. In addition, fiber brushes do not require lubrication and produce virtually no wear debris, for maintenance free, life time operation.
