A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. Slip rings 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.
For high-speed data transfer or for data transfer in EMI sensitive environments, Moog manufacture a line of Fiber Optic Rotary Joints (FORJs).
Moog has over 10,000 designs, if you do not see a slip ring to match your requirements, please contact us for assistance.
