Electrical Slip Ring In The Application of Robotics

The rotating joint of robot has complicated structure and inconvenient installation, but we could adopt electrical slip ring to realize 360 degree with unlimited rotations freely in the robot, which through slip ring to transmit power and signal.

Robot is a kind of machine device that perform working automatically, its task to assist or replace human's work. Compared with human beings, robot could be more flexible and efficient at some extent. In this modern society, labor cost has been increased year by year, we believe that robot will plays a very important role no matter from our daily life or manufacturing in the near future.


The rotating joint of robot has complicated structure and inconvenient installation, but we could adopt electrical slip ring to realize 360 degree with unlimited rotations freely in the robot, which through slip ring to transmit power and signal. The circuits for robotic slip ring can be up to 300 rings which could transfer Ethernet, USB, encoder, thermocouple signal and so on. At the same time, robot slip ring normally has the main feature of low working speed, maintenance free, longer life time,etc, that could solve the problem of stranded wire in the robot device.

According to different application environment, robot slip ring could be divided into two categories which namely industrial robot slip ring and special special robot slip ring. The industrial robot slip ring is exactly to face robot in the industrial application, but special robot slip ring is used for the various advanced robotics in manufacturing and serves to human beings. Including service robot, underwater robot, entertainment robot, military robot, agricultural robots,etc.

Barlin Times could customize special robotic slip ring for you as per your specific requirements. If you did not find suitable product to meet your demand, please feel free to contact with us, our sales engineer will keep in touch with you timely to solve all of your problems.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
