*Please note that the operational life of the unit is dependent upon rotational speed, environment and temperature.

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, commutator, collector, swivel or an electrical rotary joint.

The AC6023 compact slip ring capsule is a standard, off-the-shelf unit that uses gold contacts at the rotary interface.  Color-coded lead wires are used on both the stator and rotor for simplified electrical connections. It is available in 6, 12, 18 and 24 circuit models.

Aside from the standard configurations, we have a wide variety of special designs, which have been customized to meet the particular needs of an individual application.
