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?
