Mercotac® Brushless Slip Rings

Mercotac® Brushless Slip Rings operate on a superior principle. They offer an extremely low resistance electrical connection because the electrical 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 slip ring.

Brush-type slip rings typically consist of a rotating metal ring that rubs against a graphite or metal brush, transferring the electrical signal or current. While brush slip rings are technically simple in operation, the rubbing interface can lead to various problems. These include wear, high electrical resistance, oxidation, and resistance fluctuations, which cause electrical noise.

Switching to Mercotac Brushless Slip Rings can provide a superior alternative with reliable, long-lasting connections that avoid the problems associated with brush-type slip rings. See the Difference
