The basic working principle of the slip ring is to rely on the fixed frame to complete the transmission of the power required for the mechanical operation and the signal transmission process between the rotating part and the rotating fixed part. Since the slip ring itself is a very precise transmission device, When working, it can make use of the characteristics of the conductive ring. With sliding contact, electromagnetic coupling, and electrostatic coupling, the three coordinated forces make the entire working process of the slip ring simple and smooth.

The application of slip ring is wide, it can be used in many electrical equipment without any continuous restriction or intermittent rotation, so that the interior of the slip ring can be greatly simplified. Of course, the benefits of simplification are also obvious, not only can make the entire system's structure becomes simple and clear, and any sprains caused by the continuous rotation of the thread can be avoided during the work process, which can greatly improve the working efficiency of the related machinery, and thus increase the profit for the enterprise.

For the slip ring, the whole is realized by the principle of elastic lap, rolling lap and sealing, combined with precise and ingenious movement structure design, sealing structure design, precise part manufacturing coordination, and reasonable material selection to build a stable and reliable structure. Simply attach the slip ring to an infinitely rotating device to provide power to the rotating part, so that the rotating part can perform other transmission tasks while infinitely rotating.

But it should be noted that simplification does not mean simplicity, but requires higher model accuracy and more prominent product quality control, and has higher requirements for slip ring manufacturers.
