A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, continuous rotation while transferring power and / or data from a stationary to a rotating structure. A slip ring is also called a rotary electrical interface, commutator, collector, swivel or a rotary joint.
The LPT096 is a commercial slip ring capsule that features a 96mm through-bore and a compact 86mm outside diameter. The through bore provides routing space for hydraulics, pneumatics, or for a concentric shaft mount. This slip ring is available in four lengths,(depending on the number of circuits required). The 15 amps per circuit are available in 6, 12, 18 and 24 ring configurations in 4 housing lengths. This “stacked module” approach allows us to quickly assemble the exact number and type of circuits that our customers require.Similar in design to our very popular LPT096 series, this design features long life, fiber brush contact technology for ultimate performance in many challenging applications.
The LPT096 uses our fiber brush technology which offers several advantages over conventional slip ring contacts including multiple points of contact per brush bundle, low contact force per fiber and low contact wear rates. In addition, fiber brushes do not require lubrication and produce virtually no wear debris.
