Standard and Custom Design Slip Ring Assemblies

Standard and Custom Design Slip Ring Assemblies

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.

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:
