ABSTRACT: NanoLab proposes to develop a non-contact data transfer device to replace slip-rings in rotating assemblies. The proposed device will offer up to 300 channels of secure data delivery across the rotating frame at speeds of 20khz or higher. Further this device will be able to handle multiple input types, including thermocouples, strain gauges, and other analog and digital sources. BENEFIT: Slip rings are widely used to carry data and power between stationary and rotating components. That said, they are a significant maintenance burden, and are limited in their ability to handle data. A novel solution is proposed that is non-contact (to reduce the maintenance burden) and capable of high data rate.
