A slip ring is an electromechanical device that can be used in any system that requires rotation at several points in the transmission of power and signals. It improves the performance of machinery, simplifies system operation and eliminates susceptible wires hanging from movable joints.
Slip rings also become collectors, rotary joints,slip ring connector,rotary contacts, electrical slip rings, collectors and electrical rotary joints, these slip rings are commonly used in applications such as alternators, packaging machinery, cable reels, slip ring motors, rotary tables, automation equipment and more. They can be used on any rotating object to transmit electrical power, control circuits or analog or digital signals.
