The efficiency and capacity of the slip ring system depend on the quality of the transmission of power and signals, as well as on its resistance to wear.
These are determined by the design, the material, and the surface quality of the sliding system used. Only the optimal combination of the sliding contact and slip ring surface allows electrical signals to be transmitted without interference and the contact system to work with a minimum of wear and with a long service life.
High quality materials based on gold, silver, and palladium provide optimal contact resistance, mechanical and electrical properties, and excellent resistance to corrosion. To minimize costs, we can offer material combinations with lower precious metal content and selective applications of precious metals.
