Pancake slip ring, also known as flat slip ring, is a special kind of slip ring. Its friction pair consists of contact brush and copper rings. The copper rings are laid concentrically instead of being stacked together. Such structure contributes to the super thinness of the flat slip ring. Therefore, pancake slip ring is especially fit for electronic devices with limited space in axial direction. The pancake slip ring also plays an important part in military industry. With our excellent design and production techniques, JINPAT pancake slip ring is a premium choice for military devices.
To give an example, JINPAT pancake slip rings are broadly installed in radars and satellite communications on the move for vehicle system and air-borne system. Being super thin and handy, JINPAT flat slip ring is very competitive in application with limited axial space. Take a look at the following comparison. JINPAT LPT000-0510-E2 is a through hole slip ring designed for a radar system. It has the simplest structure and least channels. It integrates only 5 10A channels but its tall reaches 72.5mm. Compared to such model, JINPAT flat slip ring LPK000-0410-08S-E2 only takes up 36mm at height. The height is reduced by half in the pancake slip ring. And most of JINPAT pancake slip ring models are around 36mm in height.

Thanks to its integral structure, JINPAT pancake slip rings are with high protection grading. LPK000-0410-08S-E2 is with IP65 while LPK000-0230-10S-E2 with IP64. Having a relatively high protection grade, JINPAT pancake slip rings can cope with challenging working environments. This feature also makes it very suitable for military applications.
