What is Electrical Slip Rings?

Ring body and brushes are the main parts of electrical slip ring. electrical slip rings can transfer power or signals from something fixed to a point on a rotating object. It can connect rotating and stationary equipment in any electromechanical system that needs to rotate and can transmit current and signals 360 degrees without limit.

Overview

Slip rings (electrical joints) can transfer powder or signals from something fixed to a point on a rotating object. Slip rings are widely used in automation, security, heavy equipment, wind turbine, rotary table, packing, medical, military, radar, marine, etc.
GRAND provide standard electrical slip rings in stock. Also we can provide a custom solution designed to meet your exact application.

FAQS

How to choose a slip ring?

Need detail information about application’s operating parameters, including total circuits, the voltage and amperage of each circuit, working speed, working temperature, installation methods, signals type and the protection level. Please check our standard slip rings for start or just reach out to our experts.

What is the difference between commutator and slip ring?

Slip ring and commutator both are used to maintain electrical circuit continuity between a static and a rotating system. The most important difference is commutator can convert dc to ac or ac to dc but electrical slip ring cannot.

How slip rings works?

The wires from static parts called brush wire, loop around a cylindrical metal rings.
The power or signals is transferred from the metal rings to brush wires, which can transfer the power or signals outside.

What is slip ring used for?

Some parts need under 360° unrestrained continuous rotation, but the wires are to be connected to the rotating parts. Electrical slip rings can avoid the wires to be twisted.
