※ How long can the service life of the slip ring be?
The conductive slip ring can solve the problem of rotating and winding the machine and transmitting the current signal, so its application is more and more extensive. Almost all equipment that needs to rotate and transmit power will be used. How long is its service life?
Generally speaking, the conductive slip ring has no fixed service life, which is related to the speed of machine rotation, working environment and ordinary maintenance. If it is used in a good environment, the service life can be up to 15 years. Therefore, when purchasing slip rings, it is necessary to provide detailed demand parameters as much as possible, including the number of channels, current, voltage, working speed, working environment, etc. For example, some slip rings are prone to rain and dust in the open air, so they need to be rainproof and dust-proof, and some slip rings need to be corrosion-resistant when they are exposed to corrosive substances. Then the manufacturer provides design schemes according to the needs of these customers, and adopts different structures and corresponding materials.
***How to prolong the service life of the slip ring?
The material of the conductive slip ring also has a great impact on the service life of the slip ring. The slip ring manufactured by Jiachi Electromechanical Co., Ltd. generally uses an aluminum alloy shell. Some special slip rings use stainless steel, and the internal copper ring is gold-plated. The highest brush wire is gold alloy, which can effectively extend the service life of the slip ring.
*** How to install the slip ring?
The conductive slip ring is a kind of device that can transmit power and signal to each other between 360 ° rotating devices, so as to avoid twisting and winding of wires during the rotating operation of the device. When selecting conductive slip rings, we should first confirm the installation method we need. Conventional conductive slip rings generally have two installation methods: through hole installation and flange installation.
The through hole installation is to cover the conductive slip ring on the rotating shaft, and the rotating shaft drives the conductive slip ring to rotate. Then it is necessary to know the diameter of the rotating shaft to judge the inner diameter of the conductive slip ring. The rotating shaft is fixed with screws, and the outer shell is stopped with a stop plate. Second, flange installation. For flange installation, it is necessary to know the distance between the flange size of the slip ring and the installation hole distance. The rotating shaft of the equipment is connected with the flange of the slip ring, and the outer shell and the through hole installation are also fixed with a stop plate. If you are not sure about the installation method of conductive slip rings on your equipment, you can consult the customer service of JARCH Electromechanical. They will recommend the installation method suitable for your equipment according to your equipment, and provide plane installation drawings or 3D installation drawings of various slip rings.
