Slip Ring Design – R1.1m (2015)
I am the Project Manager and Lead Engineer on this project. I have designed a 1.5m diameter slip ring with 8 rings. The slip ring enclosure has to meet a minimum of IP66 rating whilst rotating. The slip ring transfers 1kW power, an RS232 signal and two high speed DSL signals from stationary to a rotational drill string. The slip ring is currently being manufactured.
