These 6 wire and 12 wire slip rings are simple electromechanical devices that allow the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires rotation while transmitting power or signals. It can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage−prone wires dangling from movable joints. Commonly, you’d find slip rings in wind turbines, robotics, wheel encoders, or anything else that requires continuous 360 rotation, while maintaining an electrical connection. With a slip ring assembly, your electronics can now twist and turn safely. This particular slip ring provides you with a compact body with gold−on−gold alloy fiber brush to plated ring contacts inside. Inside the plastic tube is a gold plated slip ring for either the 6 or 12 wire version. There are six/twelve color coded wire sets made of 26AWG and no matter how you twist the assembly, they will remain in continuity. Each slip ring is capable of handling a continuous working speed of 250RPM and each of the wire sets can carry up to 2A at up to 240VAC or 240VDC. There’s a 44mm (1.7”) diameter flange with mounting holes to make it easy to attach.
