Short S-Series Slip Ring Assembly


  • 4, 6, 8 and 10 circuit slip rings
  • Compact design
  • Sealed against dust
  • Color coded terminals
  • Stainless steel & Aluminum housing
  • Instrumentation quality rings and brushes
  • Optional integrated amplifier


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. The lightweight and compact design of these slip ring assemblies make them ideal for use in applications where limited space is available.

For applications that also require signal amplification, the Short S-Series slip ring assembly can be used with Michigan Scientific’s thermocouple or strain gauge amplifiers. If the addition of the amplifiers uses up too much space, Michigan Scientific can manufacture the slip ring assembly to have an amplifier integrated directly into the rotor, not changing the dimensions of the slip ring.


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.
