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 have work with Meridian Labs for many years. I started a new job and needed to have some pulleys covered with urethane … More for a very important piece of equipment. Vance came through and got the pulleys done in a few days. We machined a V-Groove in the urethane and got our equipment in full operation. I could not have done it with out their help. Best quality, fair pricing and a company you can count on.

    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 ordered a drive roller for my high precision telescope tracking mount. A fantastic product that works perfectly. Vance … More was really helpful getting the product out to me. Great service and highly recommended.
