Slip Rings For Surveillance And CCTV Applications

Slip Rings For Surveillance And CCTV Applications

slip-rings-for-cctvIn today’s environment, where personal and facility security is a priority, the use of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) or Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) camera systems has grown substantially.  In factory and manufacturing facilities and residential homes these types of cameras are becoming more and more common.

These camera systems utilize a slip ring to transfer electrical power, data and video signals. Given the size of these cameras, the slip rings must be compact while being also durable and useable in almost any kind of environment.

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

BGB Technology can work with all manufacturers of CCTV and PTZ camera systems to supply and support the proper slip ring systems to fill the varied range of requirements seen in the market today. Should you have such requirements, please contact us us or email our sales team at

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...
