Rotary Electrical Joints

Moog is a proven supplier of rotary solutions for transmission of power and data signals from a stationary to rotating structure. Our slip rings are used extensively in rugged aircraft and space vehicles, and our range of Fiber Optic Rotary Joints (FORJ) are designed to allow high-speed data transfer in EMI sensitive environments.

Slip Rings

Propeller Slip RingsWe have over 10,000 slip rings designs that allow us to tailor products specifically for harsh environments where unrestrained, intermittent or continuous rotation of power/data is required. Moog’s slip rings improve performance and simplify system operations. Specialized slip rings are available for aerospace, military, industrial and marine applications.
