In this webinar, we briefly review the basics of slip rings and outline their various design iterations. Then we explain how slip rings integrate into automated motion designs — and use several examples from industrial automation, robotics, wind turbines, and defense.
Topics to be covered in this slip-rings webinar:
- Construction and subcomponents of common slip-ring designs used today — including materials, contacts, electronics, wire harnesses, enclosures, and sensors commonly integrated into slip-ring assemblies
- Where slip rings make more sense than other approaches — and where they’re indispensable
- Industries where slip rings are on the rise (and why); IIoT capabilities with slip rings; power and data transmission considerations
- Electromechanical designs and combination slip-ring components; specifying standard and custom solutions; slip-ring offerings for extreme environments and settings requiring explosion-proof assemblies
- Signal purity, new modes for transmission, and where fiber-optic slip ring permutations excel
