In modern commercial and industrial environment many machines and devices are communicating via industrial networks. One of the most used connection type of all times is the standard USB connection. In order to provide a fast and reliable solution for those connections, we created our hybrid USB + electric slip ring solution.

The hybrid USB slip rings can contain 1 or 2 USB lines with USB1.0 or USB2.0 connectors on both sides. Beside the USB lines the customer can choose between max. 16 power lines (max 10A or 20A) or up to 36 signal lines (max. 2A or 5A). The housing is made of robust aluminium and available as capsulated or through-bore version.

For electrical transmission hybrid slip rings combine the best advanced fiber brush technology and precious metal or gold-to-gold multi-contacting, they offer low electrical noise for high data rate field bus transmission, low contact pressure for long lifetime and they are maintenance free.

We offer standardized & modularized design and fully customizable products according to the special requirements of customers in different applications.

If you have specific customized requirements, please feel free to consult us in order to create the most suitable recommendation for your specification.
