Slip ring assemblies are used for the transfer of power and data. BGB Technology can manufacture custom units that combine power slip rings with signal / optical / hydraulic rotary joints.

Power channels utilize Phosphor Bronze rings in conjunction with either Copper graphite or Silver graphite brushes. Signal channels make use of silver to silver contacts, or where applicable, fiber optic rotary joints (FORJs).

We are able to design slip ring assemblies from concept using the latest 3D design techniques. We can produce virtual 3D images that give a vivid impression of a new design. There are limitless possibilities for new products.

Product Description

Power and data slip rings available for the following protocols:

  • High speed digital signal transfer
  • RS232 & RS485
  • Ethernet
  • BUS Systems
  • Multiplexing
  • Video

Applications include:

Cable reels, hoists, winches, packaging and other automation machinery, robotics, water treatment applications etc.

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...

Slip Rings In Amusement Park Rides

Summer is when people head out to their favorite amusement park to enjoy everything from the classic carousel to the biggest roller coasters. Many of the best rides incorporate an impressive light display while spinning and turning at the same time. 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...
