Fiber optics, widely employed in traditional manufacturing and various industrial equipment, are not only used for static signal transmission but also to handle dynamic transmission scenarios, such as 360° rotations. In such cases, optical fiber slip rings are essential for supporting optical signal transmission. When optical fiber slip rings are integrated with electrical slip rings or pneumatic slip rings, they create optoelectronic integrated slip rings, which possess the capability to transmit power, electrical signals, pneumatic signals, and optical signals as an integrated system. This integrated solution is highly favored in manufacturing and other traditional industries.
Optical fiber slip rings share a similar structure with standard electro-pneumatic slip rings, consisting of a rotor and a stator. The key difference lies in the fact that the stator of an optical fiber slip ring is designed with a non-contact structure, incorporating prisms or other optical elements internally. Through these precision optical elements, optical fiber slip rings transmit signals from the rotor end to the stator end.
As an industry leader, JINPAT has consistently emphasized its independent research and development capabilities. In the field of optical fiber slip rings, JINPAT has been at the forefront compared to non-specialized optical fiber slip ring manufacturers and currently possesses the ability to independently supply optical fiber slip rings with fewer than 10 channels. This capability enables JINPAT to meet the optical fiber slip ring requirements of nearly all optoelectronic integrated slip rings. Simultaneously, this gives JINPAT a competitive edge in terms of cost-effectiveness, reducing delivery lead times, and enhancing post-sales response times. In a fiercely competitive slip ring market, having strong in-house research and development capabilities for optical fiber slip rings undoubtedly provides an advantage.
Annually, JINPAT delivers thousands of optoelectronic integrated slip ring products to its customers, with customized small and medium-sized products based on capsule and hollow-shaft slip rings constituting the majority of shipments. Consequently, the update frequency of these two product categories is the highest. Recently, JINPAT has delivered various models of small-scale optoelectronic integrated slip rings. For instance, LPC-12YT-0405-FO01 is a relatively straightforward product, including 4 channels for 5A current paths and 1 single-mode optical fiber slip ring. In contrast, LPC-0505-1102-HD01-FO01 is relatively more complex, integrating 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.
In summary, optical fiber slip rings and optoelectronic integrated slip rings play a crucial role in modern communication and manufacturing fields, and JINPAT' independent research and development capabilities and innovative product releases set it apart in this domain. The continuous updates and enhancements to their small-scale products provide more flexible solutions to various industries, meeting ever-evolving demands.
