SLIP RINGS FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS

The medical sector requires an unparalleled level of precision and technical reliability. Rotary joint systems for the transfer of electrical signals and extremely high data rates play a vital role in this field.The medical sector requires an unparalleled level of precision and technical reliability. Rotary joint systems for the transfer of electrical signals and extremely high data rates play a vital role in this field.

The sophisticated manufacturing process of the slip ring systems includes development, design and production of Transmitter and Receiver electronics, the respective plastic casting and machining technology as well as demanding mechanical production from miniaturised techniques up to HSC 5-axis milling with diameters of up to 2.5 meters.

  • CT Scanners

  • NM-Machines

  • Medical Gantries

SLIP RINGS FOR CT SCANNERS

SCHLEIFRING supplies as market leader the worldwide demand for high-tech rotary joints for computed-tomography (CT scanners).

  • Power transmission
  • Contactless transmission of image data
  • Control signal transmission
  • Multiplexer
  • Integrated encoder
  • Up to 2 m inner diameter
  • Speed up to 300 rpm
  • Contactless data transmission by GigaCAP® with rates up to 10 Gbit/s per channel
  • Control signals: contacting/ contactless
  • Power: contacting/ contactless from low to high power consumers

 


SLIP RINGS FOR SECURITY APPLICATIONS
 

SCHLEIFRING offers specialized rotary joints and subsystems for airport baggage-scanning systems that help meet this challenge. The security experts at international airports are required to screen 100% of checked baggage as well as all carry-on baggage.

 

SCHLEIFRING offers specialised rotary joints and subsystems for airport baggage-scanning systems that help meet this challenge.



Slip ring systems for airport baggage scanning systems:

  • Checked baggage
  • Carry-on baggage
  • Explosives Detection Scanner (EDS)

  • Explosives Detection Gantries (EDG)

These slip rings have the following benefits:

  • Large inner diameter
  • Power: Contacting/ contactless
  • Contactless image data transmission
  • Signal: Contacting/ contactless
  • Multiplexer
  • Integrated encoder
  • Long maintenance intervals plus minimized service efforts
  • Resilient system for highest reliability


THE WIDEST RANGE OF ELECTRICAL SLIP RING ASSEMBLIES

The transmission of power, signals and data between a rotating and a stationary plane is required in all areas of industrial design. Fixed connections via cables can only be applied for systems with a limited angle of rotation. For continuous rotation of 360° slip rings or rotary joints are required.

Besides contacting slip rings for the transfer of low data rates more and more non-contacting rotary joints are used, especially for the transmission of digital data at high bit rates. These systems are based on a worldwide patented capacitive non-contacting transmission technology which at present allows transmission of data rates from 100M Bits/s up to >5 GBits/s.

High Performance Slip rings for:

  • All common BUS-Systems such as MIL-Bus, RS 422, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet etc.

  • Signal transmission of any kind, e.g. Thermo elements, Video, Encoder, Strain Gauge etc.

  • Power transmission up to 15,000 A

Fiber Optic Rotary Joints

  • Active and passive

  • Single- and multi-channel

Media Rotary Joints

  • For Hydraulic, Pneumatic, cooling and heating media, gas

  • Up to 2000 l/min.

Non-Contacting Rotary Joints

  • For Power and Signal Transmission

RF-Rotary Joints

  • Microwave and Coaxial

  • Digital/ analogue

  • Up to 15 channels, DC - 40 GHz

Slip ring systems by combining various transmission technologies

The field of application for our products ranges from standard designs for simple duty tasks up to highly complex customer specific systems often involving several hundred rings. Currently, more than 4,000 different design solutions are available!
