What is a Slip Ring?

"A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure.

A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, 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.

The BGB range of robust standard slip rings lends itself to a multitude of application speeds. Barrel and face type units use phosphor bronze rings as standard within an insulation medium of thermoset glass-reinforced DMC based on unsaturated polyester resin (Grades 43-2036/597 and 43-2036/623).
