Proxi-Ring 240W

The Proxi-Ring™ 240W is able to deliver up to 240 watts of power with no physical connection, providing a reliable alternative to traditional mechanical slip rings used to get power to hydraulic actuation and control systems across rotating joints. The tougher the environment, the more design features we can provide to make it work and keep your systems working 24/7.


  • Proxi-Ring™ powered wireless slip ring
  • Circuits completely friction free
  • Fast and accurate response to load variations with 1% accuracy
  • Power channels: maximum output current 10A (total across all channels) at 24VDC
  • Communication channels: fully integrated 250kbps wireless CAN-Bus


The Proxi-Ring™ is a standalone electrical device that enables transfer of power and data across an electrical rotary joint referred to as a slip ring, electric swivel, rotary electrical interface, commutator or a collector.

The Proxi-Ring™ is a next generation solution to replace existing mechanical slip rings. It provides a reliable and maintenance free alternative and does not require friction based metal and/or carbon brush contacts to enable power and data transfer.

Input power is transferred inductively – a standard power supply can be used to power the Proxi-Ring™ transmitter with up to 10A peak drawn from the receiver at 24V.   The output voltage is held within a tight 1% tolerance.

The Proxi-Ring™ is available as a plug and play modular system which can be used to upgrade slip rings in new or existing equipment.


  • Elimination of friction or heating between rotating and stationary circuit contacts
  • Cost effective maintenance free alternative to traditional slip rings
