Slip Rings

McGeoch Technology specialises in the design, ongoing development and manufacture of a wide range of highly sophisticated slip rings. Our extensive expertise and engineering development facilities mean that we can respond quickly and efficiently to any specific needs be they for small or larger quantities. A slip ring is an electromechanical device that allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires rotation while transmitting power or signals. It can improve mechanical performance, simplify system operation and eliminate damage-prone wires dangling from movable joints. Also called rotary electrical interfaces, rotating electrical connectors, collectors, swivels, or electrical rotary joints, these rings are commonly found in slip ring motors, electrical generators for alternating current (AC) systems and alternators and in packaging machinery, cable reels, and wind turbines. They can be used on any rotating object to transfer power, control circuits, or analog or digital signals including data such as those found on towed array sonar, aerodrome beacons, rotating tanks, power shovels, radio telescopes and canmakers. McGeoch slip rings are standard equipment in many applications throughout the defence industry. In industrial applications too, McGeoch slip rings can be found in winches, rotating plant and sludge pumps. Please contact us for further information.
