Abstract
Aerodyn proposes to develop a new concept in slip ring design that would culminate in a new class of high speed slip rings that could operate up to 90,000 RPM with 50 contacts (25 channels), be capable of handling temperatures up to 700 ¿F without external cooling support, have a bandwidth of 200 KHz, weigh less than 2 lb, and be designed to directly support new developments in small turboshaft engines. With active cooling the new slip ring design is expected to be able to withstand up to 1300 ¿F.
