How They Work

A slip ring is a rotary coupling used to transfer electric current from a stationary unit to a rotating unit. This is accomplished by either:

  • Holding the center core stationary while the brushes and housing rotate around it.
  • Holding the brushes and housing stationary while the center core is allowed to rotate

    Fiber optic rotary joints are being considered more and more as a replacement for conventional precious metal contacts in wind turbines.

    How to Keep Your Turbine Spinning

    The design and manufacturing of a slip ring component is imperative to the overall function and efficiency of a wind turbine.When a slip ring fails, power and communication data cannot pass through to pitch mechanisms, and other controls in the hub and top box; this can cause a wind turbine to shut down. This is also why manufacturers have devoted a great deal of engineering and research to developing wind turbine slip rings that last longer, and require less maintenance.

  • Small Slip Rings are a Big Deal

    Small Slip Rings are a Big Deal

    When most people think of wind turbines, bigger components like motors and blades immediately come to mind. Smaller components, on the other hand, are often overlooked. However, it's those small components that can make or break a system.
