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
