Multi-Channel, High Current Slip Rings (>50A)

ROTOCON MXP Series

High Current Slip Ring Alternatives

The high-current, multiple-contact, MXP-Series ROTOCON slip ring alternative is designed and built in a variety of configurations for high amperage applications.  In applications like rotary turntable molding machines, conventional slip ring contacts suffer from arcing, friction and inevitable degradation of electrical performance. The MXP operates at 98% energy efficiency with no arcing or breaks in the flow of power, maintaining consistency and quality of power as it’s transmitted. This greatly improves product quality and eliminates maintenance costs.
