WHITE PAPER – The Importance of Contact Resistance in Slip Rings

Our engineers are regularly called upon to explain and demonstrate the importance of contact resistance, and the signal quality one can expect from a conventional brushed slip ring compared to a ROTOCON brushless slip ring.

Choosing the right slip ring is vital for ensuring reliable results, and delivering the lowest possible maintenance expenses. This dialogue usually begins with a simple but important client question: which device works best for my application? Based on our 55+ years of experience delivering thousands of slip ring solutions, we can help.

In this whitepaper we go over the basics of resistance, and what it means for your application.

    I contacted Meridian Laboratory to obtain a slip ring for my Undergraduate Senior Capstone project. The project required … More a slip ring capable of highspeed data transfer with very little noise to drive an LED bar on a fan to generate images. Sven Krause was very knowledgeable and responsive and helped me figure out what product I needed. He even managed to get the slip ring donated to our team and had great advice on how to integrate it into our project. The project was a huge success thanks to Meridian Laboratory.

    I had a great experience working with Vance Nelson on a batch of custom polyurethane wheels. He provided fantastic design … More and material property advice related to my application and was able to deliver high quality wheels in a fast time frame at a reasonable price. I'd highly recommend working with Vance and Meridian Lab in the future

    I've had the pleasure of working with Meridian Laboratory for the past couple of years, and they have revolutionized … More our product with the parts they created for us. Not only did they create the part, they also gave us advice on which type of material to use, and the combination of those two things has helped us be more efficient and productive.
    Vance has been helpful at every turn, and I look forward to working with him and the team at Meridian Laboratory more in the future. They do superb work.
