End of Shaft Slip Rings

Slip Ring Assemblies

Slip Rings are a reliable way of transferring signals between stationary and rotating parts. They accommodate multiple channels for the transfer of data, signals, and power simultaneously. Low electrical noise provides reliable signal transfer with minimal external interference. Slip rings are compact and can be customized to fit specific requirements. Michigan Scientific Slip Rings also provide unlimited bandwidth for signals. This makes them an ideal instrument for the installation of sensors on rotating components. Michigan Scientific offers an array of slip rings, including varieties of End of Shaft, Tubular, and custom solutions. Slip Ring Assemblies are trusted by the automotive, aerospace, robotic, agriculturalenergy, medical industry, and many others.

End of Shaft Slip Ring

Michigan Scientific creates End of Shaft Slip Ring Assemblies specifically to mount on the end of a rotating shaft. Tubular Slip Ring Assemblies are used for applications that require the slip ring to be mounted directly on a rotating shaft. Common End of Shaft Slip Ring Assembly applications include use on parts such as wheels, gearboxes, engines, and compressors. Customers often use them to transmit temperature, strain, torque, stress, vibration, and acceleration measurements. Customers can also use the slip rings for high-speed digital ethernet signals. Michigan Scientific Slip Ring Assemblies can utilize many optional accessories and features to meet the demands of a variety of applications. 

The video below demonstrates a potential use case and installation for an End of Shaft Slip Ring. To demonstrate, we gauge a shaft, which spins a flywheel at high speeds, for strain and then transfer the measurements from the shaft to the DAQ via the slip ring.

Michigan Scientific’s slip rings set the industry standard in durability and efficiency of design, making them a great choice for anyone’s first slip ring purchase. Michigan Scientific makes them from precious metals that reduce noise and enable using the assemblies for low-level instrumentation signals. Many standard End of Shaft Slip Rings operate at high speeds, up to 12,000 rpm. The Slip Ring Assemblies from Michigan Scientific are compact and rugged. Weatherproof designs provide accurate test results in even the most adverse conditions.
