Description

Michigan Scientific’s Short S-Series Slip Ring Assemblies are utilized for a variety of applications requiring up to ten circuit connections. The slip rings are designed to mount on the end of a rotating shaft and make electrical connections to strain gauges, thermocouples, or other sensors that have been installed on rotating equipment. Connections are made through a variety of termination styles located on the slip ring rotor and stator. 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 lightweight and compact design of the Short S-Series 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 have an amplifier integrated directly into the rotor, not changing the dimensions of the slip ring.

Mounting

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.
