Slip rings let electronic designs twist, rotate

July 21, 2019  Stephen Law

NTE 6-wire (76-SR-6) and 12-wire (76-SR-12) slip rings allow the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure. Inside the plastic tube are gold-plated slip rings for either the 6-wire or the 12-wire version. There are six/12 color-coded wire sets made of 26AWG and no matter how you twist or turn the assembly, they will remain in continuity. Each slip ring is capable of handling a rotation speed up to 250RPM and each of the wire sets can carry up to 2A at up to 240Vac or 240Vdc.
