Electrical slip rings can be specified to meet a variety of customer requirements, ranging from electrical power, communication protocols and operating temperatures to mechanical vibration and shock requirements. These electromechanical devices may be used in a variety of applications including semiconductor production equipment,wind turbines, industrial automation equipment, directional drilling machines, and robotics.
In recent years, sensors have been adopted on a larger scale across vertical markets including industrial applications, driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, where huge amounts of data are collected and shared between connected devices. These connected machines help businesses improve their productivity and efficiency by enabling real-time monitoring and control.
