UEA slip rings offer design versatility as component kit rings or as completed, ready-to-mount assemblies with optional pre-wired harnesses. A wide selection of circuitry is available with many combinations of amperage and voltage (AC or DC). The compact design is made possible by brushes stacked on alternating sides. UEA slip rings come in a variety of bore sizes, from .500” to 14.00”. Every order is custom designed for your specific motion application need. Our engineers work with you on the application to provide the highest performing quality slip ring available!

C. Set Screws

Should be tightened securely at 45 - 55 in. - lbs. (5.1 - 6.2 Newton/Meters) to mounting tube.

1.5" (38.1mm) ID bearing accepts 1.496" (38.0mm) to 1.492" (37.9mm) diameter tube.

Optional environmental seal/bearing for inverted mounting accepts 1.496" (38.0mm) to 1.492" (37.9mm) diameter tube.

Optional oil-impregnated bronze bearing for high ambient temperature application accepts 1.5" (38.1mm) diameter tube.
