How Does A Slip Ring Work?

A slip ring transfers electricity via sliding contacts from a stationary to a rotary side of an electro-mechanical assembly.

Rings are generally produced in copper alloy, and the brush contacts are commonly copper or silver graphite.

Generally one ring is required for each conductor in the supply cables used in the application. Additional rings may be incorporated if necessary.  Slip rings are generally only limited by the space restrictions of the application and are highly customizable.
