Michigan Scientific’s Short S-Series Slip Ring Assemblies are utilized for a variety of applications requiring up to eight circuit connections. The slip rings are designed to mount on the end of a rotating shaft and make electrical connections to strain gages, thermocouples, or other sensors that have been installed on rotating equipment. The slip ring brushes and rings are made of precious metals in order to minimize resistance variation and enable the assemblies to be used for low level instrumentation signals. In addition, a stainless steel and aluminum case provides protection from dust and other contaminants.
The Short S-Series models are available in four and eight circuit slip ring assemblies. Connections are made through color coded solder terminals located on the slip ring rotor and a connector on the slip ring stator. Permanently lubricated bearings eliminate the need for routine cleaning and maintenance. The lightweight and compact design of these slip ring assemblies make them ideal for use in applications where limited space is available.
These models can easily be mounted to the end of a shaft. Refer to the literature on S-Series Slip Ring Assemblies for a detailed drawing and description of the mounting procedure.
Contact Michigan Scientific for applications in which the slip ring assemblies are subjected to extreme vibration.
