Split construction slip rings can be sectional in construction for assembly around a shaft that is in place or otherwise not possible to remove. Slip ring assemblies can be supplied in two or more sections to best meet the specific installation and operation requirements. This type of slip ring is ideal for installation on printing presses, paper processing machinery, or any other type of machine where shaft disassembly is not practical.
Each electrical slip ring section has its own wire harness or connector to insure full electrical connections at all times. The brushes are arranged with multiple contacts per slip ring track to maintain uninterrupted contact with each slip ring section through full rotations. The brush block configuration also provides smooth mechanical transition of the brushes over the slip ring sections with staggered contact points.
Most split construction slip ring assemblies are for large diameter shaft applications, but small diameter shaft and slip ring assembly size is also practical. Due to the infinite number of mechanical and electrical variables, each split construction slip ring assembly is custom designed and built to meet the exact needs of the application.
