Development of optical fiber slip rings provides solutions for Optoelectronic integrated slip ring

Since the advent of optical fiber communication, it has been widely used in various fields due to its outstanding performance. In conventional optical fiber communication, optical signals are transmitted statically through optical cables, and their transmission distance is influenced by single-mode or multi-mode optical fibers. However, with the widespread application of optical fiber technology in traditional manufacturing and other industrial equipment, the demand for dynamic transmission scenarios,such as 360° rotational optical signal transmission, is increasing. In such cases, optical fiber slip rings have become a critical component to support optical signal transmission.

Similar to traditional electrical slip rings, optical fiber slip rings consist of a rotor and a stator. The difference is that the stator of the optical fiber slip ring is designed with a non-contact structure, which incorporates prisms or other optical elements responsible for transmitting signals from the rotor end to the stator end. When integrated with electrical slip rings or pneumatic slip rings, optoelectronic integrated slip rings have the combined transmission capability of power, electrical signals, pneumatic signals, and optical signals. This integrated solution is highly popular in manufacturing and other traditional industries.

As a leader in this field, JINPAT has always focused on independent research and development capabilities. In terms of independently developing optical fiber slip rings, JINPAT has been at the forefront compared to non-specialized optical fiber slip ring manufacturers.They are currently capable of independently supplying optical fiber slip rings with up to 10 channels. This enables JINPAT to meet the optical fiber slip ring requirements of almost all optoelectronic integrated slip rings and gives them a competitive advantage in terms of cost-effectiveness, delivery lead time, and after-sales response time. In the competitive slip ring market, having strongin-house research and development capabilities for optical fiber slip rings undoubtedly places JINPAT in a leading position.

Every year, JINPAT delivers thousands of optoelectronic integrated slip rings to customers, with small and medium-sized products based on capsule and hollow-shaft slip rings comprising the majority. Therefore, the update frequency of these two product categories is relatively high. Recently, JINPAT has also introduced a series of small-scale optoelectronic integrated slip ring products. For example, LPC-12YT-0405-FO01 is a relatively simple product with 4channels for 5A current paths and 1 single-mode optical fiber slip ring. On the other hand, LPC-0505-1102-HD01-FO01 is more complex and integrates 5 channels for 5A current paths, 11 channels for 2A current paths, and 1 HD-SDI high-definition signal path, with the optical fiber slip ring in this model also being a single-mode product. These new products further expand JINPAT’ product line to meet the diverse needs of different customers.
