What Sets Our Slip Rings Apart?
Mercotac® brushless slip rings 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.
Unlike most slip rings, Mercotac® products produce near zero electrical noise due to their unique design.
Resistance through the rotating contact is less than one milliohm, which is much lower than the resistance of a standard slip ring.
Mercotac® products do not degrade the signal over time, which does happen with most standard slip rings.
Mercotac® products are maintenance free.
Mercotac® products are more compact and cost far less than slip rings of equal capacity.
Both current power and instrumentation signals can be sent through a single, compact Mercotac® brushless slip ring.
