Instrumentation capsule slip rings may be deployed in various environments - ground, tunnel, sea, flight test - which tend to be severe and require components to survive a wide range of dynamic testing situations. They transmit signals from sensors, such as strain gauges or pressure sensors, from the rotating to the stationary part. Cobham slip rings provide dependable, instrumentation-quality signal connections for use in a variety of harsh conditions. Operation is extremely reliable and maintenance-free without components change or lubrication.
They can be combined with other types of rotary joints such as FORJ, Hydraulic or Hyper Frequency.
