LTN Offers Slip Ring Design for Medical Industry

SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwired - May 01, 2014) - A specially designed slip ring by LTN is now available in North America through distribution by HEIDENHAIN Corporation that is especially suitable for the medical industry. This SF020 slip ring combines standard power and signal rings with non-contact signal transmission in an unusually small dimension. The contactless rotary joint is typically used to pass digital video signals from camera to monitor in a medical theater.

Specifically, these LTN SF020 slip rings are commonly found in boom arms that support surgical lights with integrated cameras along with monitors used to display video feed. The arms optical rotary joint allows it to rotate indefinitely in either direction, eliminating the need for mechanical stops. The digital video signal is refreshed as it passes through the slip ring, allowing longer transmission lengths without signal degradation. LTN's SF020 slip ring passes power or "main" lines up to 6 amps, as well as data signals at 3G speeds (4G upon request).

With a diameter of 22 mm and length between 68 to 95mm, the SF020 supplies power and high quality video signal at high data rates in a small footprint.
