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.

    We ordered some custom urethane rollers to use as encoder wheels. They have gone way beyond our expectations to make sure … More our parts were correct and meeting our needs. Meridian Laboratory makes quality products and are extremely knowledgeable. They are a trusted resource for us.

    I purchased some hubbed rollers for a personal project I am working on. The sales team was VERY helpful and provided me with … More a sample kit which guided me to the right roller for my application. The rollers I received were really good quality and worked perfectly for what I needed. Would definitely recommend if you need polyurethane rollers for any projects.
