Slip Rings Help Power CCTV Cameras

Slip Rings Help Power CCTV Cameras

In today’s environment, where both personal and facility security is a priority, security systems including CCTV, or PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras, continues to grow substantially.  The use of these types of cameras has become common everywhere from factory and manufacturing facilities to schools and residential homes.

How Do CCTV Cameras Work?slip-rings-for-cctv

Each of these camera systems utilizes a slip ring to transfer electrical power, data and video signals. Given the size of these cameras, the slip rings also must be compact while being rugged and usable within a number of environments including exposure to wind, rain and extreme cold.

Requirements for slip rings used within these CCTV and PTZ applications ranges from simple power transfer, to sophisticated high speed data and video.  In some cases, requirements may even dictate the use of a contactless data link such as a fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ).  And it is not uncommon to see requirements for various Ethernet signals, or HDMI protocols.

Slip Ring Maintenance

The maintenance requirements of slip rings are highly dependent upon application, especially the frequency of rotations and physical environment. For example, a crane only needs to turn occasionally, even when it’s in operation. The entire crane may therefore reach the end of its service life before slip rings require their much scheduled … Read More...

How Long Do Slip Rings Last?

Slip Rings transfer power or signals across a rotating surface. They are made from electrically conductive material and work in conjunction with brushes. As the slip ring rotates the brushes come in contact with the ring producing power or signals. Slip Ring Housings The ring and brushes are housed within a unit designed to withstand harsh … Read More...

How Much Do Slip Rings Used in Wind Turbines Typically Cost?

A wind turbine converts kinetic energy into electrical energy by using the wind to turn a set of rotor blades around a central axis. This design requires a slip ring, which transmits an electrical current from a stationary to a rotating structure. The slip rings used in wind turbines are typically customized for each turbine, so a slip ring’s cost … Read More...
