Orbex Slip Rings Offer IP65 Protection for Demanding Environments

Fremont, CA – October 15, 2019 – The Orbex Group, a leading manufacturer of high-performance electric motors and slip rings, now offers IP65-rated slip rings for reliable use in demanding industrial or outdoor environments. Units include the 200 series of harsh environment slip rings, as well as the 500 and 300 series (with the -F option) of through-bore slip rings and miniature slip rings, respectively.

Constructed from stainless steel, the rugged 200 series resists shock, vibration and corrosion in salty or washdown environments. It features a wide temperature range (-40° to 80°C) and the longest service life of any of our slip rings—up to 80 million revolutions. Units incorporate our proprietary channeled brush technology, which creates multiple contact points and reduces contact forces to minimize wear in food processing, packaging, wind turbines, marine cable reels, downhole inspection equipment and other demanding applications.

The 300 series of miniature slip rings is ideal for applications requiring signal and power transmission in compact spaces. Devices feature a small rotor diameter, which minimizes surface speeds and imbalances—improving service life.

With standard bore diameters from 2 to 100 millimeters, our 500 series slip rings incorporate a through hole for passage of a shaft or feed. Devices have a modular design—achieving unprecedented flexibility with respect to package size and combination of power and signal circuits.
