Ethernet slip ring are slip rings with Ethernet connectors that allow to transmission Ethernet protocol through a rotating interface. Ethernet hybrid slip rings run power, signal, and Ethernet from stationary structures to rotating platforms through copper or gold channels. Can mix electrical power and signals, and also transmit multi-channel low-frequency signals and currents.
Ethernet slip ring suitable for 10/100/1000 Base T transmission and usually equipped with RJ45 connector assemblies for plug and play. M12, CAT5E, or CAT6 cables are available as options. Gigabit ethernet slip rings can be used in wind turbines, industrial robots, and radar antennae which need rotary platforms.
