What is a Slip Ring

Capsule Slip Ring

Until today, there are still a lot of people is not familiar with slip ring product. Actually, slip ring has been widely used in various industries with the development of modern science, such as radar antenna, medical equipment, automation equipment, engineering machinery and equipment, cable reel, amusement equipment, display equipment, security equipment, crystal furnace, wire winding machine, robot, mechanical arm, windmills, military industry equipment, revolving door, instrumentation, packaging machine, environmental equipment, etc. Generally speaking, slip ring is a kind of high precision and one of signal transmission device of complex layout. The function of slipring is to realize signal or power transmitting for the rotor part and stator part in the equipment.

The main structure of slip ring is composed of the stator and rotor, which can be continuous two-way 360 degree rotating. The contacting materials of the stator and rotor use the precious metals such as gold and silver materials and some high-performance alloy material.Because contact material must enjoy the features of low resistance, low friction coefficient, resistance to corrosion, etc. Technically, if the resistance of slip ring is too big, it maybe happen overheating burn problem when both ends of the voltage is too large. However, if the coefficient of friction is too large through the friction between stator and rotor, slip ring will wear off soon so as to affect the service life. The wear resistance and high temperature resistance of slip ring is also one of the important performance index,because the slip ring need to transmit current continuously during rotating period and the vibration of device itself will  on the need to constantly in the process of transfer current, and the vibration and friction of the device itself will make temperature higher.If you select not good temperature resistance slip ring that will cause short circuit or circuit broken problem.

The another feature of slip ring is multi-channel. Because slip ring can not only be single brush wire and single signal need to be transmitted  in the reality. all kinds of complex power systems, control systems, many power supply and signals need to transport together.This request slip ring can provide the corresponding channel number.In the design of multiple circuits, each circuit and the The insulation between each circuit and signal shielding problem need to pay much attention, especially for  some high voltage and multi-signal slip ring type. The design and structure classification of the slip ring are mainly as following:

Berlin Times slip ring has always been to "customer orientation, quality first" for the pursuit goals and ideas. And, we will do our utmost to design more different types of slip rings  for more applications industry. As a Chinese slip ring supplier, we already has had a very big promotion in the technical support, and becoming more mechanized to save time and reduce labor cost to meet a full range of specialization.Please witness our efforts and progress.
