Available from Norman G Clark , the DEUBLIN electrical slip ring is comprised of a graphite or metal contact brush which rubs on the outside diameter of a rotating metal ring. As it turns, an electrical current or signal is conducted through the motionless brush to the metal ring making the connection.
Should more than one electrical circuit be required, extra ring/brush assemblies can be stacked along the rotating axis.
Electrical slip rings enable the conduction of power and electrical signals from a motionless to a rotating structure. Slip rings are also referred to as rotary electrical joints, collectors or electric swivels, and can be utilised in any electro-mechanical system that needs unrestrained, sporadic or constant rotation while transmitting power and/or data.
Electrical slip rings have been developed by DEUBLIN to serve the challenging requirements of electric or hydraulic wind turbine pitch control applications.
The enclosed housing is specifically designed for high rotational speed and features precious metal brushes on gold plated rings.
