The Slip Ring

A slip ring is used when a machine or device needs to supply power, or a signal, but rotate at the same time.  It ensures the current from a stationary wire keeps contact with the wire that needs to turn or rotate.

Slip rings come in hundreds of sizes for almost any application, and are used in industries such as industrial machinery, amusement rides, robotics, and various military and defense applications.
