Slip ring application in rocker camera
Slip rings are widely used in rocker cameras. The rocker camera is a camera system that can rotate horizontally and vertically. It is commonly used in surveillance cameras, film shooting and stage performances. A slip ring (also known as a swivel or rotor) is an electrical connection device that allows power and signals to pass between rotating parts without tangling due to rotation.
In rocker cameras, slip rings are used to solve the transmission problems of power and signal lines. The camera usually needs to receive power supply and transmit data such as video signals, and the rotation of the rocker arm will cause the cable to be entangled. If there is no slip ring, the cable will be twisted or broken, which will affect the normal operation of the device.
By installing slip rings, the rocker camera can achieve continuous and smooth rotation while maintaining the stability of power supply and signal transmission. Slip rings usually consist of a pair of metal rings, the inner ring is connected to the fixed part, the outer ring is connected to the rotating part, and the current and signal are transmitted between the two rings through conductive brushes or other electrical contacts.
The application of slip rings in rocker cameras can also be extended to other functions, such as data communication, control signal transmission, and sensor data acquisition. The design and use of slip rings need to consider the transmission requirements of current and signals, as well as the rotation range and speed of the rocker camera. In short, the slip ring plays a key role in the rocker camera to ensure the stable transmission of power and signals. At the same time it allows smooth rotational movement of the camera system.
The LPM-18C-0202-9S slip ring specially produced by JINPAT for photographic equipment is a signal transmission slip ring specially used on photographic equipment to ensure that the rotation of the rocker camera will not affect signal transmission.
