A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. Also called a rotary electrical joint, collector or electric swivel, a slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires un-restrained, intermittent or continuous rotation while transmitting power and/or data. It can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints. For high-speed data transfer or for data transfer in EMI sensitive environments, we manufacture a line of Fiber Optic Rotary Joints (FORJ's). With over 6,000 designs, if you do not see a slip ring to match your requirements, please contact us for assistance. Our slip rings are aggressively priced, available for fast delivery and are designed for tough commercial, industrial and military environments.
