Product Description

Face Type Series Slip Ring Assemblies:
This range of slip rings has been designed primarily for the transmission of signals, but has now been
developed to also accommodate power transmission.

The best results are obtained when these precious metal surfaces are used in conjunction with silver -graphite brushes. These units are suitable for slow speed only with fitted with brass rings. 

For power transmission larger section brass rings can be fitted for slow and medium speeds and phosphor
-bronze rings for high speeds. 

Mixtures of signals and power rings can be accommodated in this very adaptable range, and the appropriate cartridge carbon brush  holders can be supplied, either loose for separate mounting
or fitted into molded carriers.
