AC7296

CUSTOMIZABLE 1 INCH THROUGH-BORE, IP65 SEALED

Ethernet Slip Rings

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 inch through-bore provides routing space for hydraulics, pneumatics, optics or for a concentric shaft mount.

The AC7296 Ethernet slip ring uses our unique fiber brush technology which offers several advantages over conventional slip ring contacts, including multiple points of contact per brush bundle, low noise, electrical and low contact wear rates. In addition, fiber brushes do not require lubrication and produce virtually no wear debris for maintenance free lifetime operation

The AC7296 leverages Moog’s popular AC4598 / AC6200 series of parts while providing many new standard options including higher circuit counts and accommodating custom cable requests.
