A slip ring capsule can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, intermittent, or continuous rotation while transferring power and / or data. A slip ring is also called a rotary electrical joint, collector, commutator, or swivel. A slip ring can improve system performance by simplifying operations and eliminating damage prone wires.
The AC6231 high speed slip ring provides a high performance solution when a through-bore configuration with high-speed operation is required. This unit provides a 1-1/2 inch through-bore for shaft mounting and a compact 4.25 inch outside diameter and very short overall length for minimal space applications. The AC6231 provides eight 15 amp circuits and the AC6266 provides four 15 amp circuits. Similar in design to our very popular AC4598 and AC6200 series, this design features long life, fiber brush contact technology for ultimate performance in many challenging applications. Brush blocks are easily replaceable for extended life.
