Slip Rings are Rotary Electrical Connectors which in the Mercotac range offer an extremely low resistance electrical connection because the electrical conduction path is a liquid metal which is bonded to the contacts.
The Mercotac Rotary Electrical Connectors' connection is constant and unchanged for the life of the rotary electrical connector. Brush slip rings are usually composed of a rotating metal ring upon which a graphite or metal brush rubs and transfers the electrical signal or current.
While brush slip rings are technically simple in operation, this rubbing interface is fraught with problems that include wear, high electrical resistance, oxidation, and resistance fluctuations which causes electrical noise.
