Many military applications require electric motors and slip rings. Orbex’s products have proven effective time and again for use in these applications.

In many military or defense applications, data integrity and data transfer rates are critical.  In applications like these, a fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ) can be integrated into the electrical slip ring to help maintain the high data rate signals without compromising data integrity. Our HD Video Slip Rings offer reliable solutions for high data rates up to 3Gbps.  For even higher rates, ask us about including a fiber optic rotary joint (FORJ) integrated with our standard electrical slip rings for a total solution offering very high data rates.

Orbex can also provide custom pancake slip rings and low profile frameless motors for applications where a non-standard form factor is required. Our pancake slip ring offers a slim profile that can work seamlessly into applications with height restrictions.

Turrets and Pan-tilt heads for cameras, lasers and other sensors take advantage of the compact size and high data rates of our 300 series miniature capsule slip rings and HD slip rings, as well as the compact size and high torque output of our EC series brushless motors.
