USING SLIP RINGS? ...Need a Rotary Electrical Contact?
Replace your brush or precious metal slip ring with superior Rotating Electrical Connectors from Mercotac Inc. Made in USA.
Slip rings need continual maintenance to avoid degradation of the rotating electrical connection caused by normal wear and debris.
Even precious metal slip rings limit rotational speed and increase electrical noise and resistance with wear.
When you replace conventional slip rings with Mercotac's no-maintenance, brushless rotating electrical connectors,
you will profit from the following SUPERIOR BENEFITS:
Extremely low electrical noise
LESS THAN 1 milliohm resistance
Low voltage Signals and/or High Power in one compact connector
Mercotac Is Still Open for Essential Business However, for the Health & Safety of our Employees Due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, & by order of the State of California, We have Temporarily had to Reduce Staff and Production Capacity. Emails Will Be Monitored from Home but some order shipments may be delayed...
Thank you for your understanding at this unique time!
MERCOTAC® ROTARY ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS
operate on a superior principle. They offer an extremely low-resistance electrical connection because the conduction path is a liquid metal
which is molecularly bonded to the contacts. The Mercotac® connection is constant and unchanged for the life of the connector.
APPLICATIONS: A great variety of OEM machinery will benefit from the use of
a Mercotac® Connector for power and control circuits when changing from a traditional slip ring.
THE UNIQUE DESIGN OF A MERCOTAC® CONNECTOR:
Mercotac® rotating connectors use
a unique design principle unlike the sliding, brush contact of a slip ring. The connection is made through a pool of liquid metal molecularly bonded
to the contact, which provides a low-resistance, stable connection. During rotation the fluid maintains the electrical connection between the
contacts without any wear.
The following are among the many reasons why Mercotac® connectors are superior to slip rings. First, unlike a slip ring, Mercotac®
connectors produce near zero electrical noise due to their unique design. Second, resistance through the rotating contact is less than one milliohm,
which is much lower than the resistance of a slip ring. Third, Mercotac® connectors do not degrade the signal over time, which does happen with
slip rings. Fourth, slip rings require maintenance and Mercotac® connectors are maintenance free. Fifth, Mercotac®
connectors are more compact and cost far less than slip rings of equal capacity. Sixth, both current power and instrumentation signals can be sent
through a single, compact Mercotac® connector.
