What is a Slip Ring?

Measured on size alone, a slip ring is a relatively small piece of a larger engineering puzzle, but looks – as they say – can be deceiving. Slip rings are actually a vital electromechanical device that you’ll find as a commonplace component in many of today’s industrial, military and even everyday equipment, where they play a crucial role in answering one of engineering’s most difficult questions:

How do you efficiently – and effectively – transfer power and other electrical signals from a stationary device, component or power source to a rotating object?

To find the answer to that question, as well as many more including 'What is a Slip Ring?', 'How does a Slip Ring work?' and 'The leading Causes Of Slip Ring Failure', you can continue reading this post at our website. 

By doing so, you'll learn everything there is to know about Slip Rings, as well as the advantages that new technologies including wireless and contactless slip rings provide over their mechanical counterparts, as well as the ways this new technology is helping businesses the world over cut down on maintenance and repair costs while operating in harsh, hostile environemnts.
