Slip Rings for Medical Equipment & Devices

Because it can literally be the difference between life and death, medical equipment has to perform at its peak at all times. Whether used in the emergency room to deal with trauma patients, in surgical settings, or in diagnostic testing, there’s no room for equipment error—every part and component of these complex devices have to work right, every time.

To ensure that your medical equipment operates as it should, you need to ensure reliable transmission of power and electrical signals. Orbex’s 300 Series miniature slip rings and 500 Series through bore slip rings are the perfect solutions for medical equipment of all types, from X-ray tube systems to patient monitors to CT equipment.


High-Performance Slip Rings for Medical Applications

Orbex’s medical grade slip rings feature a modular design that allows for a customizable mix of low current signal circuits and high current power circuits. This gives our slip rings exceptional flexibility and versatility for use in a wide range of medical equipment.

500 Series Hollow Shaft Slip Rings

500 Series slip rings from Orbex are ideally suited for use in medical equipment where signals and power need to be transferred and a through hole is needed to pass a shaft or other feed through. These slip rings are available with standard bore diameters from 2mm to 100mm; larger diameters are available as custom solutions.

Our through bore slip rings are built with our proprietary channeled brush technology for continuous high performance and extended working life. This unique design provides multiple contact points with low contact force, which significantly reduces wear.

300 Series Miniature Slip Rings

Our 300 Series mini slip rings are perfect for smaller, more compact medical equipment where space is at a premium. These specially designed slip rings utilize small-diameter rotors that minimize relative surface speeds for minimal imbalance and heating, which translates to longer surface life. Gold-on-gold contacts ensure long life, low noise, and minimal interference between circuits, as well as low contact resistance.
