Model 1500 Product Specifications
- Hex nuts are included
- Available with stainless steel ball bearing (1500-1-SS)
- External dust seal for IP51 protection (recommended for wet or corrosive environments).
- "SS" designator indicates stainless steel ball bearing (recommended for wet or corrosive environments)
- "-1" designator indicates an external dust seal
- Note: The 1500 series Mercotac™ Connector comes standard with a stainless steel body, which is electrically "hot" to the internal conductor at higher voltages
Model 1500 is typically mounted by the threaded stud on either end or by the steel body using a set screw. When mounting horizontally, mount the Mercotac so the body of the connector rotates
- The up arrow should not point below horizontal.
- Do not solder to or bend terminals.
- Avoid lateral forces and mechanical loads (overly stiff or tight wires).
- Do not rigid mount both ends of the Mercotac.
- Limit the mounting eccentricity (runout / wobble) to .005" (.13mm).
- Provide overload protection within the circuit.
- Avoid vibration and bumping motions.
The Mercotac model 1500 series brushless slip rings cater to high-power applications, making them ideal for plating electrodes and welding cable reels.
