Four Common Problems With Fiber Optic Rotary Joints

A slip ring is an electromechanical device that transmits electrical current between a stationary and rotating structure. A Fiber Optic Rotary Joint (FORJ) is the contactless optical equivalent of a slip ring, since it transmits an uninterrupted optical signal as it rotates. FORJs are widely used in many applications, including remotely operated … Read More...

But you don’t see electrical outlets or wires hanging off the sides of the ride – so what makes … Read More...

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...
