Durable slip rings for applications requiring high transmission rates and
broadcast-quality video

From cable reels to antenna systems, communications equipment relies on continuous rotary motion to meet the tracking requirements of vehicles and satellites. Our slip rings can help you accommodate this motion—all while providing high transmission rates and IP65 protection for reliable outdoor use.

Our customizable slip rings combine power and data—including high-speed Ethernet—in multiple mechanical configurations to meet your specific needs. Ideal for applications requiring broadcast-quality video, our High Definition Video Slip Rings transfer non-compressed, HD video through a rotating joint and can achieve data rates of 3 Gbps and higher.

Antenna pedestals will also benefit from our High Performance Brushless Servo Motors, which combine high torque and smooth motion in a compact, cost-effective package. Various cable, connector and feedback options are available.
