Slip Rings for Marine Equipment

Marine and offshore environments present unique equipment challenges. Transmitting power and electrical signals in equipment that is constantly moving or rotating can be difficult enough; adding harsh oceanic conditions to the mix makes it that much tougher. Fortunately, Orbex’s 200 Series harsh environment electric slip rings are specially engineered for challenging applications like these.

Our harsh environment slip rings have been installed in a wide range of marine and maritime equipment, including:

  • Offshore wind turbines
  • ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) such as exploratory/research submarines
  • Marine cable reels and winches
  • Downhole inspection systems for offshore drilling
  • Marine instrumentation
  • Seismic surveying devices
  • Floating production, storage, and loading equipment
  • Outdoor and undersea pan-tilt camera heads
  • and much more


Reliable, High-Performance Slip Rings for Extreme Conditions

Marine environments present some of the harshest conditions on Earth. Offshore and Oceanic equipment must withstand nonstop exposure to salt water, extreme temperatures (both hot and cold), high winds, constant—and often powerful—waves, and numerous other challenges.

Orbex’s 200 Series slip rings are designed and built to deliver reliable performance in even the worst conditions. Stainless steel construction gives them superior corrosion resistance in salt water environments, while IP65 construction prevents water and moisture from affecting performance. 200 Series electric slip rings are temperature rated from -40° to 80°C (-40° to 176°F).

Proprietary channeled brush technology gives our harsh environment slip rings greater performance and extended service life. This innovative design provides multiple contact points with low contact force to dramatically reduce wear in demanding applications.

Our 200 Series marine slip rings are built with a unique modular design that provides outstanding versatility and flexibility. This design allows for numerous combinations of low current signal circuits and high current power circuits in the same device and makes other connector and termination options possible. These slip rings can be easily customized to meet your performance and application requirements.
