Our flagship line - R-Series - set the standard for quality in industrial slip ring design. They are rugged, built for long life, and easy to maintain. With an assortment of ring sizes, insulators, and bore sizes, we can assemble a ring that is ideally suited for the application. Changing brushes is easy. Each brush can be rotated out of the holder without special tools. Individual brush holders can be removed independently.
Each assembly includes a fully articulating brush system that will track the ring without fail. Rings are sized based on bore size, combined with appropriate ring sizes to meet the electrical need. We sell rings "non-enclosed" and "enclosed". We also sell them for hazardous locations and can integrate fiber optic swivels and/or pneumatic or fluidic rotary joints to the basic electrical slip ring.
